This year’s White House Easter Egg Roll will be held on Monday, April 21.  In support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative to help kids grow up healthy and  have the opportunity to reach their full potential, the event will feature sports courts, cooking stations, and, of course, Easter egg rolling in addition to live music and storytelling.

White House Easter Egg Roll tickets will be distributed through an online lottery system, allowing guests from across the United States to participate in a tradition that dates back to 1878.  

The lottery will open for entries Friday at 10 a.m. and close on Monday at 10 a.m. Tickets are free of charge and are non-transferable. Full details can be found at www.WhiteHouse.gov/EasterEggRoll and www.recreation.gov.
