Where to Celebrate Easter in Wisconsin

Spring is finally here—and that means that Easter events and outdoor activities are just around the corner. Here’s where you can celebrate Easter in Wisconsin this year.

On Saturday, April 3, the Racine Zoo is hosting an “eggstra” fun event. Beginning at 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. attendees can participate in everything from a hunt for Cluck-Cluck doors throughout the zoo to collect candy, a Trunk Hunt, cookie-decorating activities and a number of fun, spring-focused crafts. Proceeds from the event will benefit the animals and programs of the Racine Zoo. 

Bentley’s Pet Stuff will be getting into the spring spirit with an Easter celebration on March 27. Beginning at noon and continuing on until 4 p.m. there will be activities for guests and their pets to participate in, including a pet-safe egg hunt, portraits by Bourelle Photography and Paw Print Art.

The Milwaukee County Zoo is hosting its annual Egg Day event on Saturday, April 3. The zoo is open for Egg Day from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature a special visit from the Easter Bunny who will greet guests at a COVID-friendly distance, of course. Additionally, there will be a scavenger hunt for guests to participate in, as well as the opportunity to ride the North Shore Bank Safari Train to count the Easter eggs along the train’s route.

On April 3, visit the Great Lakes Farmers Market at Milaeger’s for some good old-fashioned Easter fun. The Easter Bunny will be making a special appearance, and he will also be giving away special-filled Easter eggs. The cost of this event is $5 plus tax, and this admission will include planting a pansy basket. 

The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa will be hosting an Easter lunch with unlimited mimosas and an all-new complimentary Bloody Mary Bar on Sunday, April 4. The event will feature beautiful countryside views for the best Easter photo backdrop, and all lunch guests and resort guests are invited to join in on the fun of an Easter egg hunt at 12 p.m.

On Saturday, March 27, businesses in Downtown Wisconsin Dells are also set to host an Easter “Egg-Stravaganza” where visitors can go on a scavenger hunt for “Peter Rabbit.”  

Chula Vista Resort is offering a perfect spring special where guests can opt to have  “Easter Bunny Helpers” decorate their room before they arrive, and they’ll even leave cookie- and Easter egg-decorating supplies behind so visitors can have their very own Easter party in the comforts of their hotel room.

At the Wilderness Resort, Easter 2021 is sure to be an unparalleled celebration as it will feature a gigantic outdoor egg hunt on Sunday, April 4. Kids can meet the Easter Bunny himself, hop the bunny trail to find candy, decorate cookies and whip up crafts. 

Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park will be transforming their indoor theme park into an extravagant spring wonderland perfect for Easter. Each resort guest will have access to all of the fun with an appearance from the Easter bunny, as well as egg painting for the kiddos. 

And finally, the Easter Day brunch at Trappers Turn Golf Course is recommended as one of the best in the entire state of Wisconsin. This year’s feast will feature carving stations, a salad bar, breakfast entrees, soups and desserts, and even a children’s buffet filling the clubhouse.
