Easter, much like many holidays has become more of a fun family tradition than strictly a religious experience for many families in America. Whether you're celebrating Easter, Passover, or neither, egg hunts are a fun all-ages Springtime tradition. New York City has a wide range of free egg hunts in all 5 boroughs on Easter Day for locals without backyards and NYC tourists alike. We've got options for non-denominational Easter Day events in NYC!
