Eggcellent Easter Events in Calgary
Easter is coming and the bunny is bouncing into town. This Easter weekend, there are some egg-cellent events in town, from the classic faves to free hunts. In all cases it equals quality family time. Here is our round up of Easter activities to explore.
The Great Legendary Easter Hunt at Butterfield Acres
Perfect for the smallest set, the Butterfield Acres event includes story time, an extra special hunt, and a chance to help the Easter Bunny in his secret workshop. Kids will also get to do some spring planting and visit with the farmyard animals. Be sure to get tickets soon—they go fast.More info here.
Easter in the CORE
This free hunt will appeal to both the younger and older set, with plastic eggs hidden around the CORE centre (in common areas, and in participating stores marked with decals on their entrances) filled with tasty treats and other prizes. When eggs are found, just bring them to the cash desk of the store or to Guest Services to redeem the prize. What an Easter treat: to get some shopping time in while keeping the kids entertained. We love that it's running from April 3-15 (a longer event run time means more spots are available). Be sure to take in some playtime at Devonian Gardens during your visit. Hop to it!

Calgary Zoo Easter Eggstravaganza
Where do little bunnies belong? In the zoo, of course. This Easter ‘eggstravaganza' is a favourite for a reason. On March 30 and 31, kids of all ages can explore, create, and learn. This year is all about learning about native bees and butterflies and how we can help them thrive. Be sure to take in all the animals as well. It's a great way to run off all that chocolate that the kids will consume! More info here.
Easter Petting Zoo at Westbrook Mall
Some friendly bunnies, chicks, goats and sheep will be stopping by the mall for a visit on Saturday, March 31, making for a sweet treat for the small set. Plus, we love that you can get free photos with the Easter bunny (only from 12-4 pm).More info here.
Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt at Mt Norquay: April 1
Take a trip to the mountains this Easter and enjoy an affordable brunch and a free egg hunt at Mt. Norquay. Kids can dig through the snow to find eggs, while you can enjoy an egg breakfast: it's a win-win. More info here.
Easter Egg Hunt for Dogs: Good Friday, March 30
Have a furry four-legged friend in the house? Consider this fun hunt specifically for dogs (and their kids) at this fundraiser in support of National Service Dogs. More info here.
