The White House Easter Egg Roll is an annual family event to hunt for and race Easter Eggs on the White House Lawn while enjoying storytelling and a visit with the Easter Bunny. The holiday tradition has a long history dating back to 1878 when President Rutherford B. Hayes officially opened the White House grounds to local children for egg rolling on Easter Monday. Successive Presidents have continued the tradition of inviting children to the White House Lawn for egg rolling and other activities and entertainment.
The White House will open the South Lawn to children age twelve and under, along with their families, to enjoy sports, cooking classes, live musical performances, storytelling and the traditional White House Easter Egg Roll. The 2012 event featured the theme of “Get Up and Go!” promoting health and wellness with activities that encourage children to lead healthy and active lives and follow the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ initiative. The 2013 theme will be announced soon.
Date of the White House Easter Egg Roll: April 1, 2013, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
