Easter Eggsperience at the Buffalo Zoo 2023

April 1 - April 2

Hop on over for a fun-filled day of Easter excitement at the Buffalo Zoo! This family-friendly event features a Zoo-wide candy trail, a photo op with the Easter Bunny, complimentary train rides, animal ambassador meet and greets, animal enrichment sessions and more! Upon arrival, all Easter Eggsperience ticket holders will receive an additional bag of goodies that can be used to collect their sweets along the candy trail. Keep your eyes peeled for one of the ten golden eggs hidden around Zoo grounds for a “egg”-stra special prize! Once you’re done with the bunny fun, stay and explore— Zoo admission is included in the ticket price. This event is designed for children ages 12 and under. The candy trail will take place from 10:00 am–2:00 pm and all ticket holders will receive a map upon arrival. Thank you to our participating sponsors Western New York Immediate Care and Highland Contractors who will be passing out candy along the candy trail. 

This event sells out every year. Purchase your tickets today!*
