The theme of Eggster's 19th Annual Egg Hunt and Learning Festival is Eggsploring the World. Our event includes performances by student groups and multiple booths that center around world cultures.
Eggster's Annual Egg Hunt and Learning Festival is completely free, however participants have the option of purchasing raffle tickets for select prizes. The proceeds from this fundraising will go to Mission Graduates and CoachArt, nonprofit organizations that foster growth and creativity among Bay Area youth. Mission Graduates works to educate children in the Mission District of San Francisco about the benefits of receiving a post-secondary education. Their vision is to transform the culture of the neighborhood so that college becomes the expectation for Mission families rather than the exception. CoachArt aims to Improve the quality of life for chronically ill children and their siblings by providing free lessons in the arts and athletics.

In addition to providing a fun and entertaining event, we hope to introduce the idea of college to children and inspire them to pursue higher education.
