Chicago Area Easter Egg Hunts

The green buds are popping out of the ground, Daylight Savings time has arrived, and Spring is just around the corner. That means the Easter Bunny is on his way too, and he’s stopping at several spots in Chicago and the suburbs to hide eggs along the way.

Many of the hunts and events listed below require pre-registration so be sure to plan ahead. It’s always a good idea to bring a bag or basket to collect eggs and a camera to catch all those special moments. Egg hunts can end quickly so be sure you’re there EARLY to avoid disappointment. I do my best to provide accurate information, but please double check details by calling ahead or visiting the website for the event. Good luck hunting!
