Mesa Easter Pageant
March 29 - April 8
The Mesa Easter Pageant, “Jesus the Christ” — the largest annual outdoor Easter pageant in the world — resumes this spring on the north lawn of the Mesa Arizona Temple. This community tradition began in 1938 by a group of young people who gathered at the temple for an Easter Sunrise Service and has grown over eight decades to a spectacular production with a 400+member costumed cast, music, dance, drama, live animals, and special effects, all performed on a massive four-story-high stage. Free admission. No tickets required. Self-parking is limited. Light rail transportation is encouraged. Come early to secure a seat.
From arts and crafts to games, music, and food trucks, there's something for everyone. Kids will love the inflatable bounce houses and obstacle course, while parents can check out community resource booths and enjoy dance performances. And don't forget about the face painting.
Kroc Center Phoenix
Hop on over for the ultimate spring celebration at Desert Ridge Marketplace! Snap a free photo with somebunny special and enjoy an egg hunt, live entertainment by Funergy, crafts, giveaways and more throughout The District.

Home for the Holidays at Taliesin West
Each year, the Wrights would host a grand celebration and a fond farewell to the Sonoran Desert on the Easter holiday before returning to Taliesin in Wisconsin for the summer.

Easter Bunny Express
Children of all ages can visit with the Easter Bunny at the Verde Canyon Railroad depot prior to the train's departure. The train's favorite "seasonal employee", this honorable hare loves giving out handfuls of treats and armloads of hugs before bidding farewell to everyone on the train as it departs at 1 p.m.. Get your photo taken with the big bunny and be sure to enter your best guess in our jelly bean contest. The Easter fun keeps going onboard with a presentation of the winner-take-all jellybean counting contest winner by the Rare Rabbit himself. On board the train, adults can enjoy a spring-fresh Bloody Mary bursting with so many vegetables a rabbit would love it.
