Utica, NY—The annual Utica Zoo Eggstravaganza returns to the scenic grounds of the Utica Zoo on Saturday, April 20th, from 10am-3pm. Eggstravaganza is unlike other Easter themed events; the focus is all about the Egg. From animals who lay eggs, to the much loved Egg Hunt, Eggstravaganza has fun for the entire family.
Visitors will be able to explore the zoo and celebrate the numerous different species of animal who lay eggs and learn how truly different and unique each egg can be. There will be animal meet & greets, egg-themed enrichment for the animals, STEM-based crafts, animal bio facts to explore, and lots more. Make sure to bring your basket for the Egg Hunt
and your best smile for photos with the Easter Bunny, or get your face painted by Coco’s Big Shoe Clowns. Make sure to check out our vendors, including food and drink options.
Visitors can take advantage of free parking in the zoo parking lots or park at the Parkway Rec Center and use the free shuttle bus. Eggstravaganza is included with Zoo admission. Members receive free admission; not-yet members will pay $8 for adults, $4.75 for children aged 3-12, Seniors 62+, military, veterans, and college students with ID will pay $6.75.

Utica Zoo creates unique experiences and promotes public appreciation of wildlife through education, conservation and recreation. Located in Roscoe Conkling Park, the Utica Zoo was established in 1914 as part of a recreational complex made possible by the donation of land from Thomas R. Proctor. The zoo has grown from its beginnings of three Fallow Deer
donated by the New York Zoological Society to its present collection of more than 100 species from around the world.
