By Kara Murphy March 23, 2023

Easter events are popping up all over Erie, Pa.! We've compiled all of the Erie Easter events in one guide to make it easy for you to find upcoming Erie egg hunts, Erie bunny sightings, and more! 

But that's not all that's happening in Erie this weekend. Without further ado, here are your 5 Erie event picks March 23-29:

1. Cheer on the 'Revolting Children' at J.S. Wilson

The middle school kids have worked so hard at J.S. Wilson to put together an amazing performance of Matilida Jr.! How do I know? My daughter is in the show! She and the rest of the cast have been putting in long hours of practice for two months now, and it all culminates this weekend with their stage performances. I've gotten some sneak peeks this week and can tell you it's going to be a great show for kids of all ages! Find out more and get tickets now. Friday, March 24 through Sunday, March 26

Maybe you'll be lucky enough to spot some tadpoles! Saturday, March 25

Meet other Pokémon trainers at the Erie County Public Library's Pokémon League! Come play games, trade cards, and make friends. If you don't know how to play, they will teach you! Trading Card Game, Nintendo Switch/DS, and Pokémon GO players are all welcome. Saturday, March 25
