What is Easter Egg Dye-o-Rama?

Hands-on fun? Check!
An Easter event that doesn’t revolve around candy or plastic? Check!
Multiple indoor and outdoor activities suitable for ages 3 & up? Check!
Free? No need to RSVP? Double Check!

And on top of that, this year 100% of the proceeds from this event will keep our longtime partners at Generation Serve investing in the youth leadership and promoting the volunteerism that make the difference for us and for Austin’s communities.

Join us this Good Friday for one of our most fun-filled community events of the year, as we open up the house and grounds for an afternoon of old-fashioned Easter egg dyeing, lawn games, and a chance to get to know one of Austin’s oldest landmarks at your own pace.

Easter egg dyers of all skill levels are welcome! Bring your own boiled (or blown!) eggs and we’ll provide wax resists, vinegar baths, and dyes, and, of course, take care of all of the clean-up. (We’ll also have prepared eggs available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis)

When you’re done working on eggs, enjoy a round of badminton under the shade of our 140 year old pecan tree or a scavenger hunt for either our historic house or our LuAnn Barrow exhibit.

Ok! What do I need to bring and when does it all start?

Friday, April 19th
12pm to 4pm

Bring your own blown or boiled eggs (no raw eggs, please!) and we will supply all the dyes and decorations you need free! We will also be providing blown eggs on a first come, first served basis. We suggest a $2 donation for each egg (remember: eggs are pre-blown, so you can keep them for as long as you like–no refrigeration needed).

No RSVP required! Follow our facebook page for event updates and to invite friends to join in the fun!

Parking is free to visitors in the museum lot located off of 23rd street. Additional paid parking is available at the Quarters parking garage (map) at 22nd 1/2 street and Rio Grande.
