Easter at Avalon Gardens – CANCELLED

April 12, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

$5 – $15

Easter at Avalon Gardens is a family favorite for Arizonans from Phoenix to Patagonia. Bring the family out for this annual celebration on Easter Sunday, April 12th for games, pony rides, hay rides, food, and entertainment!

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 Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage.

From 9:00am to 11:30am, enjoy hayrides, pony rides and face painting. At 11:30am begins the Easter Eggstravaganza Games! – more than just an Egg Hunt, this is a variety of fun-filled games and activities for kids of all ages!

At 12:30pm a healthy delicious lunch buffet is served and the entertainment begins! Performances include TaliasVan’s 50-voice Bright & Morning Star Choir & Orchestra, The Brilliant Evening Stars youth band, as well as theater and dance by students of Global Community Communications Starseed Schools for Teens & Children.

A tour of Avalon Organic Gardens & EcoVillage is 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, community-building, and more.

Enjoy this special day of wholesome, family fun celebrating the soon return of The Promised One in the beautiful surroundings of Mother Nature.

Proceeds benefit the Global Community Communications Starseed Schools for Teens & Children nonprofit.
