Hop into the Gardens to Begin Your Eastertide

By on March 8, 2023

Eggs are the center of attention in a challenging balancing act. Join the gardens on April 8 for this springtime tradition.

Elizabethan Garden

The Elizabethan Gardens’ annual “Eastertide in the Gardens” will be held on Saturday, April 8th from 10am to 2pm. Picture-perfect spring blooms, green grass and hundreds of Easter eggs set the stage for this fun-filled family event.

“It’s a classic event with the beauty of the Gardens in the spring as the backdrop,” says Gardens’ Executive Director Theresa Armendarez. “Guests may follow a map of the Gardens’ paths to gather eggs at designated ‘egg stations’ and enjoy live music, games and vendors on the Great Lawn.” Egg races and Easter bonnet contests – grouped by age for kids and adults – will be a highlight of the day.

Standard admission applies: Adults $12 (Ages 18 and older); Youth $8 (Ages 6 to 17); Child $4 (Ages 3 to 5); Child Free (2 and under); Dog $5. All guests – members and not-yet-members – are encouraged to purchase online tickets in advance to this often-sold-out event. Oak Circle Gardens members may select this spring event to receive eight free passes. Tickets and additional information are available online at elizabethangardens.org.

Participating vendors include Stag’s Soulshine Kitchen Food Truck, Mr. Buddy, Children’s Facepainting by Ms. Sheila, Abbi’s Teas & Things, The Elizabethan Gardens’ Royal Exchange Gifts & Plants and live music by Phil Watson and Sam on Sax.
