Beginning February 26, 2024, enter the ticket lottery for a limited time for your chance to visit the South Lawn of the White House and enjoy a spring celebration with games, live entertainment, and, of course, the traditional egg roll! The lottery closes on March 4, 2024, at 10 am (EDT).

Are you familiar with the history behind this annual event? Initially, young children in Washington, DC, would flock to Capitol Hill every Monday after Easter for egg rolling and a day of activities. Members of Congress grew tired of the growing crowds and passed an Act of Congress prohibiting egg rolling on the Capitol grounds.

The event was then moved to the White House after President Hayes was approached by young children asking to use his backyard to roll eggs. The White House has invited young children to roll eggs on the White House lawn nearly every Easter since!
