Easter Celebration and Fun for the Whole Family
April 1, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm MST
Easter Sunday, April 1st, Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage is host to a beautiful Easter Celebration! Gates open at 9:00am to kick off a fun-filled day for the whole family with activities and entertainment for all ages including Easter Eggstravaganza Games, hayrides, pony rides; face painting; live music, theater and dance; delicious fresh local organic food; and a tour of the ecovillage.
From 9:00am to 11:30am, enjoy hayrides, pony rides and face painting. At 11:30am begins the Easter Eggstravaganza Games! – more than an Egg Hunt, this is a variety of fun-filled games and activities for kids of all ages with egg fishing, target toss, spoon races, tunnels and more!
After the games at 12:30pm there will be live entertainment and an optional healthy delicious lunch buffet available. Performances include songs by TaliasVan’s 50-voice Bright & Morning Star Choir & Orchestra and by the CosmoYouth Choir, as well as theater and dance by students of Global Community Communications Schools for Teens & Children.
A tour of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage will be offered after the entertainment for those interested in learning about North America’s largest EcoVillage established in 1989. Avalon Gardens is located on 220 acres of rich farmland just across the Santa Cruz River from the Tumacácori Mission established by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino in 1691. Father Kino cultivated these lands to provide for its indigenous community and Avalon Gardens continues to honor this vision by fostering progressive practices of sustainability such as permaculture, water harvesting, green/eco building, composting, seed saving, heritage grain cultivation, wind and solar power, Arizona’s largest food forest system, aquaponics, community-building, and more.
Enjoy this sacred day of wholesome, family fun in the beautiful surroundings of mother nature at Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage in Tumacacori, Arizona.
