Easter Egg Hunts and Events in Fairfield County, CT

2/7/18 - By Jacqueline Miller

We're not a religious family, but that doesn't stop us from getting out and enjoying traditions associated with Easter, and fortunately, there are plenty of events to choose from all over Fairfield County. Many families enjoy a Easter Bunny brunch, while others like to get outside and enjoy Springtime's arrival. Most of these events are geared towards preschoolers and younger elementary age children so, if you have older kids, be sure to check the descriptions carefully. Also note that some events require pre-registration and/or prepayment. Have a hopping good time!
