What happened to the Provo Easter Egg Hunt?

Many of you may be searching, googling, or, might we say, hunting for information about the 2015 Provo City Easter Egg Hunt. In this post you will find information on why Provo doesn't host an annual Easter Egg Hunt, details of awesome spring events & festivals you can attend in Provo (Get ready to mark your calendars!), and details about other local egg hunts.  

Provo’s Easter Egg Hunt History

For many years Provo City hosted an annual egg hunt at Pioneer Park (the park with a splash pad on Center Street). Just as the event was outgrowing the park, the splash pad construction project started. Our events team did extensive research to review other locations and formats and eventually decided to partner with BYU and do a joint egg hunt on campus. In 2013, we partnered together for Provo's largest egg hunt, numbering near 7,000 people.

In 2014, Provo's participation in the egg hunt was reviewed to assess impact and community value. The egg hunt excluded certain age groups and with a rotating holiday it was often difficult to balance with other major events in the community. With BYU offering a fantastic egg hunt and several other egg hunts popping up in Provo and around the valley, it was time to put efforts and resources into a new event. This event would still focus on the spring time but with a goal of including more of the community while still serving the families who attended the egg hunt in the past.

Spring Festival was formed to introduce local residents and guests to several key areas of Provo's local culture: Food, Art & Music, Outdoor Adventure, Plants & Wildlife, Family Activities, and Wellness. The first year maintained a connection to Easter through giving eggs out at the event and doing Easter crafts. This year we will hold the event on Saturday, April 18, at 4pm, a few weeks after Easter weekend. Get ready to see, hear, taste, and feel the excitement springing to life all around us! Listen to local folk and indie bands, see local artists and photography, dine from your favorite food trucks, taste new drinks, desserts, and dinner, try out dozens of activities, meet local farmers and their animals, visit booths to learn about local hiking, sailing, biking, and gardening, and so much more! 

We encourage you to attend any of the egg hunts below and to attend Provo’s Spring Festival on April 18 at Rock Canyon Park. And check out this list of great Spring events put together by the Daily Herald.
