Your 2019 Guide to Free Easter Egg Hunts in the San Francisco Bay Area

After a record winter of rain and snow, we’re especially grateful for Spring. It’s time to soak in some sun, perform that annual Spring Cleaning, and start getting ready for summer! Of course one of the fun Spring traditions is a family trip to a local Easter Egg Hunt. Churches, businesses, towns, shopping malls, and even summer camps host hunts for kids on and around the Easter holiday. This year Easter is Sunday April 21st so it’s time to plan your family day out. There are plenty of free options, and this is your one-stop resource to find them. Whichever event you choose, remember to bring your own baskets for egg gathering!

At Kennolyn Camps, we know how important traditions are. They guide our camps and other family programs, and kids experience a deeper meaning in the present when these cyclical events also connect them to the past and the future.

The event is not your average Street Fair or formal Parade. It can best be described as wonderful, wacky, elegant and fabulous, with everything from roller-blading butterflies and creative self-propelled mini-floats to garden areas, sophisticated fashions and beautiful classic and art cars. It’s a special event for the entire family.

Count on this event being entirely free for parking, coffee, snacks, crafts, photos with the Easter Bunny, and the Easter Egg Hunt. The whole family can enjoy the event together on this beautiful, peaceful site in the Santa Cruz Mountains. There are two separate egg hunts at 10:30 – 11:00 AM and 1:30 – 2:00 PM. Toddlers will have their own sheltered area to explore for eggs. For kids of other ages, they can explore in different search areas, which will be temporarily closed and replenished as soon as the eggs run out, so the hunt can continue!

Following the Egg Hunts around 12:00 PM or 3:00 PM you can join us for a tour of our summer camp properties. The Easter Egg Hunt is our biggest community wide event. Hope to see you there.
