Annual White House Easter Egg Roll


APRIL 1, 2013

The Easter Egg Roll at the White House is an annual springtime tradition that dates back to 1878.

What started as a simple egg hunt for local children during Rutherford B. Hayes’ presidency has since evolved into a giant festival held every Easter Monday on the White House grounds, featuring sporting events, celebrity appearances, cooking classes, live performances, crafts and storytelling in addition to the main event itself. Grab a spoon and join President Obama and his family for this year’s festivities, the White House’s largest public celebration of the year. Note to memorabilia collectors: participants in the egg roll receive a specially crafted wooden egg signed by the President and First Lady themselves.
