The White House Historical Association’s Official White House Easter Eggs are now available ahead of this year’s White House Egg Roll which will take place April 1.

This year, the Official White House Easter Eggs are sold exclusively as a five-piece set. The Association is also offering a Commemorative Golden Easter Egg.

This year’s set includes five vibrantly painted wooden eggs embellished with two whimsical designs. The orange, pink, green, and purple eggs feature a rabbit reading among Easter eggs. The backside of these eggs depicts the south side of the White House with Easter eggs and signatures of President Biden and Dr. Biden. The “Biden Blue” egg features dog Commander and cat Willow (the First Pets) enjoying their own favorite books. The backside depicts the south side of the White House with paw prints and the names of Willow and Commander. This set comes in a gift box with cut-out windows revealing each color.

The 2024 Commemorative Golden Easter Egg is an oversized wooden goose egg featuring a whimsical imprint of the White House South Portico with the Easter Bunny and Easter eggs on the South Lawn. This egg comes in a box with cutout window for easy viewing.

“The White House Easter Egg Roll has been an American tradition for more than 145 years,” said Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association. “Each year these wooden eggs become a part of that tradition and a piece of White House history.”

Festively packaged, the Official 2024 White House Easter Egg Set retails for $32.00. The Commemorative Golden Easter Egg retails for $24.00.

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 wooden 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 $115 million to the White House in fulfillment of its mission.
