The White House announces 2022 spring events

Today, the President and First Lady are pleased to announce plans for the following spring events: Spring Garden Tours and the White House Easter Egg Roll.


The President and First Lady will continue the annual tradition of opening the White House Gardens and South Grounds to members of the public for Spring Garden Tours. This season’s tour weekend is scheduled for 10:00 AM ET to 4:30 PM ET Saturday, April 9th ​​and Sunday, April 10th.

These tours are free and open to members of the public; however, a ticket is required for all participants, including small children. The National Park Service (NPS) will distribute free, timed tickets at a tent stationed near the Ellipse Visitors Pavilion each day from 8:30 ET. The entry point for all guests will be located near the intersection of 15th Street NW and Constitution Avenue NW. Tickets will be distributed, one ticket per person, on a first-come, first-served basis.


The White House Easter Egg Roll will take place on the South Lawn on Easter Sunday, April 18, continuing one of the oldest traditions in White House history.
