Easter in Chicago means different things to different people, which produces a breadth of events, no matter how you choose to celebrate. For many, the holiday symbolizes increasing expectations of pleasant weather and all of the fun things to do in spring in Chicago. For the devout, it's a chance to celebrate at churches across the city. Others associate the holiday with Chicago's infamous selection of Easter brunch options. Celebrate with Easter egg hunts, Easter bunny vists or however you must, but be sure to start getting together your Mother's Day ideas—the second biggest brunch holiday is just around the corner.

When is Easter?

This year, Easter falls on Sunday, April 16, 2017. The holiday occurs every year on the first Sunday between March 21 and April 25, after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox.
