Press Release - The White House Announces 2022 Springtime Events

March 24, 2022

Today, the President and First Lady are pleased to announce plans for the following springtime events: Spring Garden Tours and the White House Easter Egg Roll.

The President and First Lady will continue the annual tradition of opening the White House gardens and South Grounds to members of the public for Spring Garden Tours. This season's tour weekend is scheduled for 10:00 AM ET to 4:30 PM ET on Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10.

These tours are free and open to members of the public; however, a ticket is required for all attendees, including small children. The National Park Service (NPS) will distribute free, timed tickets at a tent stationed near the Ellipse Visitors Pavilion each day beginning at 8:30 AM ET. The entry point for all guests will be located near the intersection of 15th Street NW and Constitution Avenue NW. Tickets will be distributed, one ticket per person, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The White House Easter Egg Roll will take place on the South Lawn on Easter Monday, April 18, continuing one of the oldest traditions in White House history.

White House Easter Egg Roll tickets are free to the public and may be requested through an online lottery starting on Friday, March 25 at 10:00 AM ET, and closing on Thursday, March 31, at 10:00 AM ET.
