Easter Sunday is just a hop, skip, and a jump away, and one of the best ways to celebrate with kids is to attend one of these treat-filled Easter egg hunts in New York City. Most are outdoors in local playgrounds and parks, and a few even offer additional spring fun, like Easter Bunny photo-ops. There's even a hunt for kids with special needs on the Upper West Side.

Remember, Easter egg hunts in NYC are extremely popular, so book your tickets soon or arrive early, and be prepared to walk away if it feels uncomfortably crowded. If you dislike crowds, avoid the FREE Easter egg hunts and opt for those that carry a small fee as they usually cap the number of participants.

If you prefer to avoid the crowds, we've got tons of ideas for Easter crafts and creative egg-dying techniques, plus 30+ ideas for staging an egg hunt at home.

As always, be sure to click through to each listing for all the details, including recommended ages and time. Check with each venue for COVID guidelines before heading out to any event.
