The Cobb County Easter Egg Hunt has been replaced by the Spring Arts Festival.

The last Cobb County Easter Egg Hunt took place on Saturday, April 1, 2023. The lively Eggstravaganza was held at Marietta’s Al Bishop Softball Complex and offered a plethora of family-friendly activities, including children’s art activities, live entertainment, inflatable attractions, exciting games, contests, and much more.

Participants were able to bring their own baskets for the Easter egg hunt. Also, all activities were inclusive and accessible for participants with special needs.

  1. What is the Mad Hatter contest? Do you dress up like the Mad Hatter or is it a hat contest? What are the specifics?

    • Hi Patricia,
      The “special population” group is typically comprised of children with special needs and may include individuals who require special assistance. If you need answers to specific questions, please call the event organizers at (770) 528-8853.

    • Hi Lindsay,
      We don’t have specifics on that stuff, but you could call the event organizers at (770) 528-8853 for more information. I would expect that there will be quite a few people there, so if you are looking for an event with a smaller crowd, you could check out the Marietta Easter Egg Hunt at Laurel Park tonight (3/26/2010) or the Annual Egg Hunt at East Cobb Park tomorrow (3/27/2010). Check the Calendar of Events for more information. Also, there are Easter Egg hunts in neighboring Acworth and Kennesaw tomorrow. Check out and for more information about those egg hunts.

  2. i would like to bring my infant to get a picture with the easter bunny? do you know if it is “infant friendly”?

  3. Will this take place if the rain comes through or will they reschedule I’m excited and weather channel says rain! Got my son an outfit and everything!!!!!

    • Hi Ness,

      We just spoke to the event organizer and there is no rain date for the 2011 hunt. If the event is cancelled due to weather, it will not be rescheduled this year.

  4. For the Mad Hatter & Easter Basket contests, do we bring our own, already decorated hats/baskets or do you provide the items? Is there a charge for these?

    What are the details of the fashion show?

    • Hi Mary,

      We just spoke with the event organizer and yes, you bring your own decorated hat and/or basket to enter into the contest.

      In the fashion show, the kids that would like to participate simply walk across the stage in their “Sunday Best” and then a winner is chosen.

  5. can you give more detail relating to the mad hatter contest…do the kids bring their own hat or do they create their own there and is there a charge for it?

  6. Will the egg hunts only involve the children picking up the eggs?

    I’ve been to an egg hunt (at a different location & city) and the parents were the ones picking up all the eggs taking away from the kids participation – I want to make sure my 3 year old will be able to hunt for eggs with other kids and not against parents! Thanks!

  7. With the high chances of rain tomorrow, is there going to be an Egg Hunt or it will be postponed for later?

  8. Will the Easter Egg Hunt be post poned to a different day due to the rain or what??? We were really looking forward to taking our son.

  9. I just called the parks and rec dept and she said the event will most likely be at 10 o’clock. So looks like it won’t be a flashlight hunt this year 🙁
