Easter Events

Easter. You know why you love it. It means you’ve made it through Those Months. The months spent recovering from the financial and emotional hurricane of the winter holiday season. The dreary, rainy, ‘is-spring-ever-gonna-get-here’ months. And then…

Easter! And blossoms! And sunshine! And eggs and bunnies and enough family events in Surrey to keep your kids hopped up on chocolate (pun intended) for the entire Easter break. For instance:

Easter Fair

Surrey Museum 17710 56a Avenue

Saturday April 4, 1pm to 4pm

This by-donation event is for kids of all ages and features crafts, games, and an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt in the Museum galleries. Oh, did we mention there’s a dancing dog? At 1:30pm, Alison Trinkaus and her amazing dog George perform on the Museum’s plaza! Your child will leave with much more than a sugar high. The event is also an opportunity for kids to learn about local wildlife and meet rescue animals – from dogs and parrots to reptiles and (of course!) rabbits.


Curious Tykes: Easter Puppet Theatre

Surrey Museum 17710 56a Avenue

Thursday April 2, 10:30am to 12:00pm

Special guest star The Easter Bunny will also be there to pose for selfies and sign autographs. (We’re actually not sure about the autograph part, but you will get to meet him.)
