Easter Egg Hunts & Activities in the Twin Cities – 2019


Grab your baskets and get ready for the hunt! Easter is April 21st in 2019. Almost a full month later than last year. Let’s hope the weather is good with no freak April blizzards. Also, because Easter is so late this year, many “spring” events are being held in March, while “Easter” events are being held in April, so we’ll get almost a full month of events this year.

If you know of an event — free or paid — that you’d like to see added, please drop us a line via our contact form. Thanks! And check back often, as we will we be adding egg hunts to this list until Easter is upon us.
