The White House Historical Association’s Official White House Easter Eggs are now available and, this year, are sold exclusively as a five-piece set. The wooden eggs are used at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, which takes place this year on April 18, 2022.

This year’s Official White House Easter Egg Set includes red, orange, yellow, and purple-colored eggs that feature an imprint of the White House South Portico decorated with Easter eggs and signatures of the president and first lady. The set also includes the Biden Blue egg, featuring a special Easter Bunny imprint with images of pup Commander and cat Willow (the First Pets), along with their paw prints.

“The Easter Egg Roll is back on the White House lawn, and this year’s beautiful wooden White House Easter eggs are available to anyone who wants to take home a piece of White House history,” said Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association.

Festively packaged, the Official 2022 White House Easter Egg Set is $39.95 and comes ready to be gifted. Due to limited quantity, customers can purchase up to five sets of eggs.

MORE: History of the White House Easter Egg Roll and Tradition of Wooden Eggs

The White House Egg Roll dates back to 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes agreed to open the White House the Monday following Easter to all children who wanted to roll Easter eggs. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan hosted a hunt for wooden eggs that bore the signatures of famous people. Wooden eggs soon became the official White House Egg Roll keepsakes. The eggs are designed to reflect the special theme of each year's event and are inscribed with the signatures of the president and first lady.

About the White House Historical Association

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy envisioned a restored White House that conveyed a sense of history through its decorative and fine arts. She sought to inspire Americans, especially children, to explore and engage with American history and its presidents. In 1961, the nonprofit, nonpartisan White House Historical Association was established to support her vision to preserve and share the Executive Mansion’s legacy for generations to come. Supported entirely by private resources, the Association’s mission is to assist in the preservation of the state and public rooms, fund acquisitions for the White House permanent collection, and educate the public on the history of the White House. Since its founding, the Association has given more than $50 million to the White House in fulfillment of its mission.
