Easter Egg Hunts for New Jersey Kids in 2021

The hunt is on, so grab your Easter basket (and a face mask) and head to one of New Jersey's fabulous Easter egg hunts. While most of the festivities this year have made COVID-related adjustments, such as reducing capacity and requiring reservations, there is still plenty of Easter fun to go around. Hayrides and egg hunts remain popular, and some businesses have added drive-by celebrations and scavenger hunts, too. 

We've rounded up more than a dozen eggs-traordinary Easter events happening throughout the state. For more springtime activities, check out our roundup of Easter Bunny train rides and 40 spring activities for New Jersey kids

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do. Be sure to click through to our listings for all the info, including prices, addresses, and times.
