Egg Hunts & Easter Activities at Taves Farms
The same as last year, in 2023 Taves Family Farms is running not just one, but two different kinds of Easter events! One of them is the regular Easterfest family-friendly event which the farm has been hosting for a number of years. It happens from April 7th to 10th in 2023 and it’s hugely popular. Before that, however, there is also a special Adult Easter Egg Hunt on April 1st. The earlier, ages 19+ event takes place in the evening and includes 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 in 2023
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 takes place on the evening Saturday, April 1st. The activities run from 5:30 until 8:45 pm. The gates close at 6:15 pm, so everyone needs to arrive before then.
Admission costs about $75 per person and includes a full meal. Tickets are available online until March 27th. Partial proceeds from ticket sales are 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 performs 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 runs from 6:00 to 7:45 pm and is provided by Steamworks. Meal options include a Steamworks Burger, a Crispy Chicken Sandwich or a Beyond Burger. Each dish comes with a side of fries or a salad. Everyone also gets a hard or soft cider flight, as well as a tasty dessert. During this time, there’s 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 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. The event officially concludes 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 2023 which runs from Friday, April 7th, until Monday, April 10th. The attraction is open from 9:15 am to 4:00 pm over the Easter Long Weekend.
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 start 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.
Ticket prices vary depending on what you plan to do. General admission costs about $22 for everyone ages 3 and above (plus a couple of dollars in taxes and online fees). Little kids under the age of 3 enter for free. Tickets are available online for timeslots staggered one hour apart.
The egg hunts cost extra. Easterfest TREATPasses for children are an additional $12 each. Easterfest TREATPasses for dogs cost about $13. Of course, all participants in the hunt get to keep the treats they collect.
