Chattanooga Easter Events


Chattanooga Easter EventsIt’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!

Easter Bunny Pics at Hamilton Place Mall or Northgate Mall

March 10 – April 8

Monday thru Saturday: 11am to 3:30pm, and 4pm to 8pm

Sunday: 12pm to 2:30pm, and 3pm – 6pm

Although not required, we strongly encourage all who wish to visit the Easter Bunny to make a reservation, as time-slots are limited (walk-up visits are available as space permits). Photo Package Pricing info can be found near the end of the page, and reservations can be made using the button below. Personal photography is not permitted.

Easter Egg Hunt at Mayfield Corn Maze

April 1-2 and April 7-8 1pm – 4pm

The park will be open for an Easter egg hunt and lots of family activities (bouncy pad, slide, swings, photo ops, etc.).

The Great Adult Egg Hunt and Happy Hour

  • 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. Hang at Sculpture Fields

  • 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. Adult Egg Hunt at Sculpture Fields

  • 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Hoppy Hour at various local restaurants

This annual fundraiser combines the arts, community collaboration, and of course, education. Through a creative partnership, local artists will create one-of-a-kind works of art on an evergreen wooden egg, and adult participants will search for the eggs at Sculpture Fields. We’ll also have eggs containing candy and prizes from local businesses!

We’ll conclude the event with a restaurant “hop” along Main Street to continue to build community and support local businesses.

Participants are encouraged to wear their Sunday best for added fun, but wear comfortable shoes!

This event benefits The Chattery’s mission of providing fun, affordable and accessible learning experiences for adults.

Chattanooga Zoo’s Hug-A-Bunny Day

April 7 and 8, 9am – 5pm

Easter Cruises on the Southern Belle Riverboat

The Southern Belle is offering a variety of Easter cruises this year. Choose one that fits your needs, whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, the Easter bunny or a nice cruise of the beautiful Tennessee river!

Rock City

Take part in the upcoming events at Rock City — visit for Shamrock City or Earth Dayz or just to see all the gorgeous springtime blooms from the heights of Lookout Mountain!

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!
