*** CANCELED ***

Get ready for a fun-filled afternoon that celebrates the kid in all of us: Spring Fling Adults-Only Egg Hunt at Dorothea Dix Park!

Bring your friends (21+) and get ready for an epic Egg Hunt with over 30,000 eggs, candy and prizes from local businesses that will have you racing to collect as many as you can - as fast as you can! Before and after the hunt, enjoy music, inflatables and lawn games. Pack a picnic or enjoy food and beverages from our vendors.

This kid-free event is one of our most talked about events of the year - you don't want to miss it!

This event is free to the public thanks to Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy donors.

This event is free with no ticket required, however, registration does help us plan for how many folks are attending and we can send you important event updates including inclement weather notices.


Time: 2:00 - 6:00 PM


Location:  Flowers Field at Dix Park, 2105 Umstead Drive, Raleigh, NC 27603
