The City of Carlsbad’s popular EGGstravaganza Spring Festival returns.

This annual spring event features

  • Carlsbad’s largest egg hunt, an ongoing egg scramble where kids race to collect candy-filled eggs
  • Face-painting, crafts, cookie decorating, a fun zone, soak the bunny and more
  • Food and beverages are available for purchase
  • Activity cards can be purchased in advance or at the event, to enjoy the activities and fun zone
  • No registration is needed to attend this event

How the egg scramble works

The egg scramble is ongoing from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or until eggs run out. To keep the scramble fun for all ages, one field will be designated for children ages 6 and over who want to race for their eggs, and an identical one will be for children ages 5 and under. There is also a noncompetitive field for young children, children with special needs, and for families wanting to pose for a photo opportunity.

To avoid lines during the event, $5 activity cards and $5 unlimited fun zone wrist bands can be purchased in advance at city community centers. The cards can be divided among multiple children for all the activities; however, wristbands are per person. Both can be purchased at these locations Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.:

Event may modify or cancel due to inclement weather.
