It’s springtime (depending on the week, right?), and you know what that means! In addition to the allergies and the rain, springtime means it’s time to plan for Easter. Whether you do Easter baskets, hide eggs, or gorge yourself with Cadbury eggs quietly in the closet (just me?), Easter is a great time to enjoy time with your family.

As expected, Chattanooga has a wide variety of ways to celebrate the season — check out the options below!

The Great Adult Egg Hunt and Hoppy Hour

Saturday, March 30 1pm – 5pm

Who says egg hunts are just for kids? Go on a hunt for artisanal, one-of-a-kind eggs created by local artists and eggs with prizes from local businesses.

The egg hunt officially kicks off at 2:00 p.m. with tunes from DJ MCPRO, a champagne bar, cotton candy from Bonjour Sucre, and more!

All that egg hunting will surely work up a hunger, so join the after-hunt “hop” along Main Street for happy hours and more.

Spring Fling at Cottonwood Farm

Saturday, March 26 12pm – 6pm

Join us to celebrate SPRING on Cottonwood Farm!

We have an incredible community day planned that the whole family will enjoy!

Easter at Coolidge Park

In 2009, Easter at Coolidge began as a fun, community event to gather families, friends and neighbors to celebrate Easter. It’s become a community-treasured, destination event on Easter Sunday!!

Do you have Easter plans yet? We’d love to see you in the park!

We’ll have coffee and donuts at the pavilion. Bring a basket for your kids to ‘hunt’ eggs. Set up a lawn chair to relax and celebrate with us during the Easter worship service.

If all else fails and you’re looking for ways to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, take a hike or visit a local playground!
