White House Easter Egg Roll: Celebrating 138 years

March 27, 2016

This year is the 138th annual Easter Egg Roll! Presidents and First Ladies have invited generations of Americans to their backyard to enjoy concerts, activities and of course, see the Easter Bunny. Over the years, the Easter Egg Roll has changed quite a bit -- we don’t use real eggs after a bit of a stink during the Nixon years – and all families, no matter who you are, where you come from, or who you love, are welcomed to roll on the lawn! Explore how the White House Easter Egg Roll has evolved over the years to become more inclusive for all Americans.
