Nashville Easter Egg Hunts 2014

Looking for all the Nashville Easter Egg Hunts? I’ve put together all the Easter Egg hunt information I could find!

The majority of Nashville Easter Egg Hunts happen the Saturday before Easter, (Easter Sunday 2023 is April 19) including one of our favorites, the Red Caboose Park Egg Hunt (at the corner of 656 Colice Jeanne Road – just down from the Community Center & Bellevue Branch Library), as well as the Cheekwood Spring Art Hop & the Nashville Zoo Eggstravaganza.


As I discover more information about the 2023 Nashville Easter Egg Hunts and celebrations, I’ll continue to update them here.

Nashville Easter Egg Hunts

* Red Caboose Park/Bellevue Baptist Church

It looks like they sadly aren’t doing the egg hunt at the Red Caboose Park this year.  In the past, the BBC Easter Egg Hunt was on Saturday at 11am before Easter Sunday.  The offered Free Snacks and Drinks provided by local churches.  Also Games, Prizes, Face Painting, Washable Tatoos, & over 20,000 Eggs.

* Nashville Zoo

Head to the Nashville Zoo on April 8th for their Eggstravaganzoo!

More than 40,000 plastic eggs will be distributed on the Zoo’s Festival Field for 10 scheduled hunts held throughout the day. Participants can redeem their eggs for exciting prize packs from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  *The Egg Hunt Tickets are already sold out.*

There will also be a Zoo-wide hunt for larger, golden eggs also redeemable for prizes. Visitors can watch as Zoo animals hunt for special “eggs” hidden just for them. Other activities include Easter-themed games, bounce houses and face painting.

Get more information on their website about all the fun activities planned for that day.
