Experience one of Richmond’s favorite Easter traditions! Visit the Eggtivity Zone for an exciting adventure to gather colorful eggs by participating in games and activities. Pick the right egg and you could win an “eggstra” prize! Stop by the Hoppin’ Fun Zone to enjoy crafts and games, participate in a bonnet parade, or visit with the Easter Bunny. Along the way, you’ll meet characters from yesterday and today who will reveal some fun facts about Maymont. Enjoy live entertainment, food and more. Activity pass required for most stations.

Eggtivity Zone

Last year we hatched a new way to gather eggs during Dominion Family Easter. No more timed hunts, no more hurried egg collecting! In the Eggtivity Zone, kids will visit egg stations at their own pace to gather eggs. They can participate in five egg station activities with the purchase of an Activity Pass, and each station guarantees one egg per play with a chance to win more. Plus some eggs contain a coupon for an “eggstra” prize. See you in the Eggtivity Zone for more fun, more flexibility, and a more family-friendly “eggsperience”! Space and supplies are limited.
