Downtown Tampa Eggsploration

Experience Tampa’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt at Eggsploration!

Home / Easter in Tampa Bay / Easter Egg Hunts

Easter is Sunday, March 31, and there are so many fun Easter Egg Hunt events in Tampa Bay! One of our favorite events, Ashley’s Eggsploration, brought to you by the Tampa Downtown Partnership, is back for another year and will take over Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park on Saturday, March 30 from 9 am-1 pm.

We’ve got the details on what to expect and what to know before you go to this family-friendly event. Keep checking back while more details and announcements are released!

What activities will be at Eggsploration?

Eggsploration is downtown Tampa’s largest egg hunt! There will be thousands of eggs to find, starting at 9 am. Groups will be broken up by age so that everyone has a fun and fair chance to hunt for eggs. Once you collect a combination of eggs, you can redeem them for a prize!

To claim the grand prize, egg hunters will need to find one of three golden eggs and be rewarded with a $500 Ashley voucher! Completed scavenger hunt cards for participants 18 and up will also be entered into a raffle for a Downtown Tampa staycation package.

Age groups will be as follows:

  • Ages 3+
  • Ages 4-8
  • Ages 9-13
  • Ages 14-17
  • Ages 18+

There will also be various games and children’s activities throughout the day, including a bag decorating station! Of course, what would an Easter event be without a visit from the Easter Bunny himself? He’ll be there and will be making appearances for meet and greets and photo ops!
