5 Easter Events in Toronto Your Little Ones Will Love

Share This Post:

Spring has finally sprung, and Easter is fast approaching. For many Torontonians, this April holiday is much more than just a long weekend. It’s also a time to get out with family and enjoy the milder weather. A great way to do that is by checking out some of the kid-friendly festivities planned across the city. If you’re looking to get into the Easter spirit, try one of these five fun-filled events…

1) Barkworks

From its farmers market to its outdoor play areas to its guided nature walks, Evergreen Brick Works provides plenty of year-round enjoyment. On Easter, there’s one more reason to visit this scenic Don Valley attraction—and bring your furriest family member with you. On Saturday, April 13th, Evergreen will host Barkworks. Featuring a one-of-a-kind egg hunt for pooches and a variety of pet-focused vendors, this event is perfect for dogs and the people who love them. Proceeds from Barkworks will go to the Toronto Humane Society.

2) Easter at the Toronto Zoo

There’s always something happening at the zoo, and Easter is no exception. Over the holiday weekend, your family can learn more about your favourite critters by listening to zookeeper talks and seeing on-site veterinarians at work. Kids can also get into the Easter spirit by decorating cookies, creating seasonal crafts, and planting spring flowers. Last (but certainly not least), the Easter bunny will be on hand for plenty of meet-and-greets and photo ops. So head down to the Toronto Zoo for a long weekend your little ones won’t soon forget!

3) Easter Brunch at Casa Loma

On Sunday, April 21st, your family is invited to enjoy an annual Easter brunch at the one and only Casa Loma. Located in the heart of the city, this historic site is the perfect place for an elegant weekend meal. The spread is always fantastic, and attendees will have the option of exploring the area after they eat. You’ll be in awe of the Gothic Revival architecture, while your kids will fall in love with their magical castle surroundings. Tickets are $75 for adults and $55 for children. As anyone who’s ever attended the event will tell you, they’re well worth the cost.

4) Easter Egg Workshops for Families

If your kids are creative, the Easter Egg Workshops at Todmorden Mills are the perfect place to celebrate the upcoming holiday. On April 13th, 14th, and 20th, your family can enjoy learning the art of Pysanky—a Ukrainian egg-decorating tradition that includes the use of wax and dye. This hands-on workshop will cost just $10 for children and $15 for adults. Since it takes place on a beautiful historic site, it also provides a great opportunity to stroll around and check out some incredible historic buildings (along with a museum and wildflower preserve).

5) Canada’s Largest Egg Hunt

The next event on our list occurs outside the city, but it’s well worth the drive. Canada’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt will be happening on April 20th over 23 acres on the Milton Fairgrounds. Participants will be split into teams to search for over 50,000 hidden eggs—and complete fun challenges for points. The hunt is focused on teamwork and designed to maximize family bonding. It will appeal to searchers of all skill levels (though kids under three will have a play area of their own). You’ll also find a variety of food vendors on site to fuel your family up for the event!

These are just a few of the fun Easter events happening in and around Toronto this year. Interested in discovering what else is going on in the city’s communities? Check out our neighbourhood guides to learn more!
