Get Hopping! Egg Hunts, Meals, Chocolates, and other Egg-cellent Events – 2021
Spring is bursting with fun Easter traditions. There’s much happening in Kalamazoo for families —and while it may look a bit different this year, we are still celebrating in Southwest Michigan.
Check our list for local food, sweets and Easter egg hunts– both hosted by organizations, or for options to host one at home.
For the at-home egg hunters: have you considered a GLOW hunt? Families can try a new twist on an annual favorite by searching for eggs in the dark! Whether hidden outside in your yard or in your living room, kids will get a kick out of locating their illuminated treats.
Important Message: Area businesses are working to implement procedures based on the new safety guidelines. For each of the attractions and events we mention, we include a link to the business website. Please use this link to confirm the details, hours of operation and any requirements guests must follow before visiting. Thank You!
The Catholic Schools of Greater Kalamazoo are a strong faith-based community serving preschool through high school. We are committed to the formation of the entire person: mind, body, and soul through the cultivation of faith, knowledge, and service.
Kalamazoo Easter Egg Hunts
Like many things in the last year, covid-19 has made Easter egg hunts a bit trickier this year. We have found a few local spots offering in-person Easter egg hunts this year, and some options to have filled eggs delivered or pick up via drive-thru for your own hunt at home.
These events may require advanced registration; be sure to verify with the organizers before heading out.
For a full list of spring events for kids, visit the KZOOKIDS event calendar.
