Celebrating Easter in Orange County

March 30, 2021 Updated: March 30, 2021

For Christians, Easter is one of the holiest days of the year, a celebration of the resurrection of Christ.

With COVID-19 fears still lingering, however, some might not yet be comfortable with attending Easter services and other celebratory activities in person.

Whether a family prefers to experience Easter services and traditions in person, online or in the comfort of their car, there are numerous options throughout Orange County.

Orange County’s COVID-19 orange tier allows for in-person, socially distanced worship services and outdoor activities such as Easter egg hunts.

Here is a brief roundup of some of the county’s Easter services and children’s activities.

Due to limited capacity for physical distancing, advance registration is required for most events.
