Easter Egg Hunt

Sunday, March 24
10 am – 4 pm
Parking: $5 per car

Cantigny’s annual Easter Egg Hunt returns! Stop by for some colorful family fun.

Egg Hunt

  • The egg hunt is an “open house” event — come whenever you wish. Eggs will be available in the allée throughout the day and replenished periodically.
  • Bring your own basket or bag.
  • Each child may redeem five (5) eggs for a prize. Take the eggs to the prize redemption area located near the Tank Park and restrooms. One prize per child.
  • If your child collects more than five we suggest that you re-hide the surplus eggs for other families to enjoy.
  • The eggs you find will be empty. Please do not open or smash them.
  • Please return all eggs collected to the redemption area and do not take them home.

Photos with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny

Take a photo with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny from 10 am – 4 pm in the Visitors Center backyard. Please note, photos with Mrs. Bunny will be unavailable from 1 – 1:30 pm and photos with Mr. Bunny will be unavailable from 1:30 – 2 pm.

Hop (2011) PG

Enjoy a movie in the Visitors Center Theater at 10 am, 12 pm, and 2pm. Running time: 90 minutes.

Beneath Easter Island, in a giant factory that manufactures the world’s Easter candy, the popular rabbit is preparing to pass the mantle to his son, E.B. (Russell Brand). But E.B. has no interest in the job and would rather be a drummer. He runs away to Los Angeles, where an unemployed slacker named Fred O’Hare (James Marsden) accidentally runs into him. Feigning injury, E.B. tricks Fred into giving him shelter, but an oversized chick is planning a coup back on Easter Island.

Spring Craft

Create a springtime memory in the Medill Room (inside the Visitors Center). Color a ceramic “puppy bank,” while supplies last. $5 each. (cash only)


Tasty lunch items and drinks will be offered in the northwest corner of the McCormick Allée. Enjoy hot dogs, brats, pulled pork sandwiches, jambon-beurre sandwiches, or three-bean chili. Chips and candy bars will also be available. Thirsty? Choose from a Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar, domestic and craft beer, wine, soft drinks, lemonade, or water.
