Egg Hunts & Easter Activities at Taves Farms

The same as the year before, in 2023 Taves Family Farms ran not just one, but two different kinds of Easter events! One of them was the regular Easterfest family-friendly event which the farm has been hosting for a number of years. It happened from April 7th to 10th in 2023. It’s a hugely popular event! Before that, however, there was also a special Adult Easter Egg Hunt on April 1st. The earlier, ages 19+ event took place in the evening and included cider, food and eggs to find.

Both Easter-themed events are held at the same place. Taves is located at 333 Gladwin Road in Abbotsford.

Adult Easter Fun at Taves

The Adult Easter Fun event is the first Easter-themed event of the year at Taves Farms. As its name implies, the event is for adults only, so all attendees must be at least 19 years old.


Hours and Admission

In 2023 the Adult Easter Fun event took place on the evening Saturday, April 1st. The activities ran from 5:30 until 8:45 pm. The gates closed at 6:15 pm, so everyone needed to arrive before then.

Admission to this event costs about $75 per person and includes a full meal. In 2023 partial proceeds from ticket sales were donated to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, which is a great cause that supports children in need of special care.

What to Expect at the Adult Easter Fun Event

The Adult Easter Fun event is a wonderful way to celebrate the occasion with friends and other adult family members. Kyler Pierce performed on the Saturday in 2023.

At the event guests check in between 5:30 and 6:15 pm. During this time, everyone is welcome to visit and pet the farm animals on-site. You can also feed grain to the goats for an extra $2.00 or so.

The dinner portion of the event in 2023 ran from 6:00 to 7:45 pm and was provided by Steamworks. Meal options included a Steamworks Burger, a Crispy Chicken Sandwich or a Beyond Burger. Each dish came with a side of fries or a salad. Everyone also got a hard or soft cider flight, as well as a tasty dessert. During this time, there was also a bar with other alcoholic beverages available for purchase.

The main Easter activity is a short but fun egg hunt. It takes place outdoors from around 8:00 to 8:15 pm. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own flashlights and baskets. Various prizes are also up for grabs, so it can get competitive!

After the egg hunt, folks are welcome to explore the Taves shop. There’s cider, merchandise and delicious treats to browse and enjoy. In 2023 the event officially concluded at 8:45 pm.

Easterfest Family-Friendly Easter Event

Taves Family Farm hosts a popular family-friendly event around Easter each year as well. Unlike Adult Easter Fun, all ages are welcome to Easterfest which runs from the Friday until Monday of the Easter Long Weekend. In 2023 the attraction was open from 9:15 am to 4:00 pm on all four days.


Easterfest Activities

The annual Taves Family Farm event includes access to plenty of activities. All guests get to enjoy a hay ride, as well as access to the farm’s pedal karts, jumping pillows and slides. Folks can also see all sorts of animals, such as chickens, donkeys, pigs and more. The petting zoo is open throughout EasterFest as well, so it’s a good opportunity to get close to the farm’s bunnies and goats. Magic shows in 2023 started at 10:45 am, noon and 1:30 pm on the Saturday and Sunday.

For an extra cost, there’s also a special Easter egg hunt with treats that participants get to keep. In fact, there are even special treats for dogs to find and enjoy. Food and drinks are available for purchase too. Options include coffee, waffles, ice cream, mini donuts and more.
