Easter on Marco Island

Celebrate Easter on Marco Island!

Hop on over to our beautiful island community for a bounty of festive and family friendly events on April 1, 2018. Easter on Marco Island is a true one-of-a-kind experience you must enjoy during your time on the island.

Start the celebration early and join City of Marco Island Parks and Recreation on Saturday, March 31st, at the Marco Island Spring Jubilee and Easter Egg Hunt. From 10 AM until noon, enjoy a free Easter egg hunt for over 20,000 eggs at Mackle Park. The egg hunts begin at 11:30 AM and are separated into age groups: 3 and younger, 4 to 5 years old, 6 to 7 years old, and 8 to 10 years old. In addition to the egg hunt, free Easter-themed games, crafts, food, live music, train rides, face painting and the Easter Bunny himself will be on-site!

If there is one day you choose to wake up early during your vacation, it is Easter Sunday. Join over 10,000 residents and visitors for the 30th annual Easter Sunrise service directly on the sugary white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. The multi-denominational service features words by pastors from numerous island churches as the sun breaks the horizon over the water. The service also includes soloists from island churches and a 40-voice choir along with the Naples Jazz Band and Lely High School Jazz Band, as well as many professional musicians from around the county. . Music prelude will begin at 6:45 a.m. and Marco Police and volunteers will direct traffic and assist with parking, including double parking along Collier Blvd. Dress is casual and you should bring your own blanket or chair. The Marco Island Easter Sunrise Service will be hosted on the beach at 400 S Collier Blvd.

Of course, you are welcome to spend the remainder of your day relaxing on the sand, by the pool, or inside at your beautiful Marco Island Vacation rental—but there are many other island events you and your family will absolutely love.
