Every year the communities in Silicon Beach pull out all the stops for family fun activities on Easter. From easter egg hunts and face painting to morning cruises with easter treats, we have listed our favorite local Easter activities that the entire family can enjoy! 




Annual Venice Beach Egg Hunt


Each year Venice Beach hosts a massive Easter egg hunt that attracts crowds from all over Silicon Beach. The egg hunt offers free candy for anyone under 11 years old and is broken down into four age groups so that the hunt is fair. The age groups consist of 2-3 year olds (10:30 am), 4-5 year olds (11:00 am), 6-8 year olds (11:30 am) and 9-11 year old (12:00 noon). The winners of each age group will also receive a prize! 


Simply bring your own Easter basket and a smile for your photo ops with Peter Cotton Tail.   The event will also feature face painting, a moon bounce, and a fire truck! 


The event is located at the Venice Recreation and Parks; 1800 Ocean Front Walk Venice, CA 90291. There is street parking as well as available spots at the South City Parking Lot (2100 Ocean Front Walk, Venice, CA 90291).




Marina Del Rey Easter Brunch Cruise


If your kids are a little older and get more enjoyment out of a good instagram pic than they do an Easter egg hunt, then this might be the perfect way to spend the holiday. The gorgeous SoCal coastline is the perfect backdrop to any experience, but having your whole family together to celebrate makes it even better! 


The brunch features a generous buffet with classic breakfast goodies, holiday classics and chocolatey treats. For those 21+ there will be free-flowing Champagne to enjoy throughout the cruise. There is also live entertainment and even a visit from the Easter Bunny. 


Three cruises are offered throughout the day — 10:30 am, 11:00 am and 3:00 pm — all lasting 2 hours. For more information about tickets, pricing and menus click here!
