In 2024 Easter Sunday is on March 31st. The Easter long weekend, meanwhile, runs from March 29th to April 1st (which means Easter Monday this year is also on April Fools Day)! There are special events throughout the long weekend.

Most Easter-themed events and activities finish on Easter Sunday. Events that continue on the holiday Monday in 2024 include Easter at Britannia Mine and Hoppy Heights at Capilano Suspension Bridge.
