Family Easter Egg Hunt

The Egg hunt is a fun and interactive activity designed for families with children. A self-guided walking tour while answering clues and picking up some mini eggs. Finish by decorating your own chocolate bar egg with York Cocoa Works.

Participants receive a map/guide leaflet that includes questions about participating businesses in the area, providing a unique and engaging way for families to explore the local food scene, while also having fun and learning new things along the way.

Along the tour there will be chances to pick up some mini eggs, and then ends with decorating an Easter Egg Chocolate Bar with York Cocoa Works.

You can either pre-book online or purchase your booklet at the information point (while stocks last)

Collection of the hunt guide is from the Information Point any day of the festival from 10am, located next to the Activity Marquee (between Halifax & Barclays), Parliament Street
Last entry for the Easter Egg decorating in the Activity Marquee will be 4pm
