Spring Egg-Stravaganza Returns for Family-Friendly Egg Hunts at Lincoln Park Zoo

Celebrate spring with in a fun and festive environment on March 30

Chicago (March 21, 2024) Spring has sprung, and Lincoln Park Zoo is celebrating with its annual Spring Egg-Stravaganza on Saturday, March 30. Enjoy a morning of seasonal festivities and opportunities to learn about the animals at Lincoln Park Zoo.

The event runs from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and includes multiple egg hunt zones with different terrains and features for children ages 12 months-12 years, plus photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny. There will be live music all morning long, as well as free rides on the Endangered Species Carousel and Lionel Train Adventure. Guests can also join chats with zoo experts and discover what springtime means at the zoo.

“We love welcoming families each year to celebrate the start of spring with a morning of outdoor exploration at Lincoln Park Zoo,” said Gretchen Kirchmer, Director of Marketing and Events. “What could be better than spotting a polar bear or a zebra while searching for eggs against a backdrop of the zoo’s blooming flora?”

New this year, the zoo is offering a designated egg hunt at 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. for blind and low vision participants. This hunt consists of beeping eggs on a flat course with a smooth pavilion floor.

Every guest, including adults and children older than 12 months, needs a ticket to attend the event. Tickets are $25 and include all the activities noted above. Tickets for children ages 1-12 also include participation in the specific egg hunt zone corresponding with the ticket. Parents and caregivers are allowed to accompany but not assist with the egg hunt, except for the ages 1-3 egg hunt or if otherwise indicated.

Please note, Lincoln Park Zoo will be closed until noon on March 30 and will only be open to Spring Egg-Stravaganza ticket-holders until that time.
