Children may participate in the age group above their actual age, but not below. All ticket purchases are final and no changes are permitted after purchase. If you miss your egg hunt time, we are unable to move you to another wave due to capacity limits of each egg hunt area.

Space in each wave is limited and tickets are first come, first served. Note: All ticket purchases are final and no changes are permitted after purchase.

Lincoln Park Zoo will provide approximately 15 eggs for each child. Please be respectful of other participants when hunting.

Guests are required to bring their own baskets or bags for egg hunting. Bags or baskets will not be provided.

About Lincoln Park Zoo



Inspire communities to create environments where wildlife will thrive in our urbanizing world.



Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature by providing a free, family-oriented wildlife experience in the heart of Chicago and by advancing the highest quality of animal care, education, science and conservation.



Lincoln Park Zoo is a privately managed institution that depends primarily on the support of its visitors, members and donors to remain open and free every day. More than two-thirds of the zoo’s operating budget is provided by revenue from its food service, retail shops, parking, and fund-raising activities. The remaining portion is provided by a fixed annual subsidy from the Chicago Park District.



Lincoln Park Zoo is ambitious—a direct reflection of our executive staff and the passion they bring to the zoo each and every day. Their talents lead to the conservation of animals around the world, the cataloguing of critically endangered plants at the zoo, the development of learning programs throughout Chicago, and the creation of animal-care techniques that benefit individuals across the globe. The zoo also relies on its Board of Trustees for leadership and guidance. Providing insights on financial and operational matters, they are primarily responsible for the fiscal health of the zoo. The Women’s Board and Auxiliary Board provide supportive funds through extensive fundraising efforts, such as Zoo Ball, and public service initiatives, such as Spooky Zoo.
