Easter Monday

A Washington Family Tradition

The Smithsonian's National Zoo is celebrating Easter Monday on April 17! Throughout the day, the Zoo will offer family-focused activities, from an Easter egg hunt with prizes to field games, special animal demonstrations and live entertainment. And don't miss a chance to meet Easter Panda!

Visitors, please note that due to increased visitation during spring break, April 7 to 23, security screening measures will be implemented at all Zoo entry points. Screening prior to entry includes but is not limited to all bags, backpacks, personal items and strollers. Visitors who exit the Zoo must participate in security screening before re-entry is permitted. Zoo entry wait times are possible during the spring break period. Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation and assistance in keeping everyone safe.
