child's hand reaching to pet lambWelcome Spring with a day of fun for the whole family! The 1876 town of Walnut Hill comes together to celebrate Easter with ongoing egg and toy hunts (divided by age), horse-drawn wagon rides, egg rolling, pancake flipping, and more. Take a photo with the Easter Bunny, greet some chicks and baby farm animals, and meet bunnies from Rabbit Rescue, A Home for EveryBunny and 4-H rabbit owners. Living History Farms’ Family Easter is full of traditional holiday activities with a small-town twist.

We will once again offer an allergy-free egg hunt (ongoing throughout the event) that will be safe for those with food allergies.
