Easter Activities in Nashville 2018
Are you looking for a way to spend time with family and friends this Easter? Nashville has a lot to offer, so we rounded up our top five picks!
Egg Hunt at the Hermitage
Every year The Hermitage hosts an annual Easter Egg Hunt, and this year is expected to be more amazing than ever. The location of the hunt has moved to the lawn of Tulip Grove Mansion. There will be over four thousand stuffed eggs to find which is double the amount found at last year’s event. There are two starts, 10am and 1pm where kids are divided into different age groups. After the hunt, families can pose with the Easter Bunny, make crafts, decorate cookies, and play historical lawn games. Tickets are available online, $10 participating kids and $5.00 adults. Infants are free. Event admission does not include general admission to The Hermitage.
Lucky Ladd Farms
Lucky Ladd Farms is a family favorite for locals, and if you are in town visiting, you’ll want to make sure to check it out! Every year they host an Easter Festival with tons of games, activities, and crafts. What makes this so unique is the baby farm animals for the kids, and non-stop egg hunts with prize packs for the kids. In 2018, Lucky Ladd will add the story of the Jelly Bean the Unbreakable Egg to make the celebration of spring extra special. It should be noted; this venue is not rain or shine. Because most of the activities are held outside, they will cancel the event due to any inclement weather. If you are expecting to travel quite a distance, it’s best to call in advance!
For couples and individuals looking for an option to celebrate, you might want to check out Easter Brunch at The Mansion at Fontanel. It’s one of the largest log homes in the world and opens its doors at the holidays as an opportunity to bring together friends and family. On the menu is a full Southern-style buffet, with three seating options available. Some of the items on the list include Marinated & Pickled Vegetables, Chef Prepared Omelet Station, Chef Carved Prime Rib & Mustard Glazed Smoked Ham, and Bourbon Pecan Bread Pudding for dessert.
