Stan Hywet's Easter Egg Hunt is a tradition for many and this year we're planning some new activities, including a new self-guided scavenger hunt across the estate for preteens and younger teens, ages 10-15. The Ohio Shakespeare Festival will present dramatic story readings for everyone. 

Molly's Courtyard Cafe Refreshments
To allow for more time to experience these activities, we offering guests the opportunity to purchase breakfast and lunch items -- quiche, pastries, hot dogs, mac & cheese, beverages -- from Molly’s Courtyard Café to enjoy, instead of hosting a breakfast.

Pre-order Your Picnic Lunches
Order a picnic lunch to enjoy in the picnic area. Deadline to order is 3/25. Picnic Lunch Order Form
