Easter Egg Hunts Around the Philadelphia Area

As Peter Cottontail makes his way to the Philadelphia area, kids should find their favorite basket and get ready to search high and low for eggs. Most of these these local Easter egg hunts are outdoors. In the event of questionable weather, check directly with the organizers to see if a rain date is planned.. Also, make sure to click through to our events calendar for exact times since many hunts have multiple time periods based on age.

The majority of these egg hunts are FREE and are a great way to welcome spring and create Easter traditions with your kids. Although some events have been canceled for 2021 due to COVID, others have been re-imagined in unique and creative ways. For additional Easter fun, be sure to check our Easter Bunny Express post and Baby Animals and Easter Fun post.

As with all current events, COVID-19 protocols are in place. Even though these events are outside, it is still important to wear masks and observe social distancing guidelines. Some venues require advance registration. If an event appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our event calendar to find something else to do.
