Annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Perfect Children’s Spring Event!

Where in Chicago can kids meet the Easter bunny, play with crafts, hop around with animals and join in on a massive Easter egg hunt? If you guessed Lincoln Park Zoo, you’re right! On April 19, America’s oldest and free zoo is throwing its annual Easter extravaganza with a romping Easter egg hunt, free carousel rides and more!

Previously held at the Farm-in-the-Zoo (the petting zoo section of the zoo), this year the exciting event is moving to the zoo’s beautiful green South Lawn and historic Park Place Cafe. The egg-stravagent celebration will start at 8:30 a.m. with treats with the Easter Bunny, visiting with the animals, and weather permitting, free carousel and train rides!

The big event, the giant egg hunt, begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 9:20 a.m. So far, the age groups and the order are yet to be determined. After the festivities, the day will end with a craft session for children to create Easter art!

Tickets for the popular children’s event must be purchased in advance no later than 5 p.m. on April 16, and they will not be available at the zoo on the day of. Prices run $20 for everyone 12 and over ($15 for zoo members), $40 for children ages 2-11 and free for all babies under one year old.
