Community Events

The Exeter Township Parks & Recreation Department holds several community-wide events each year. These events are great opportunities to spend some time outdoors (weather permitting, of course!), chat with your neighbors, meet some new people, and most importantly, have fun!  

Events are always posted to the calendar of events found on the main page, but you can also find information here! 

Annual Easter Egg Scramble; bring your kiddos and come spend a morning with us hunting (ok, they're not hidden and it's more like 'racing') for eggs! Some lucky participants will find our coveted prize eggs, giving them an opportunity to win one of our awesome prizes! 

DATE: Saturday, April 4th, 2020 @ 11:00AM (Rain Date Saturday, April 11th) **CANCELED**
Location: Trout Run Sports Complex
Age Groups:  1-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-13
Additional Info:  The Township will be collecting donations at this event to benefit the Exeter Area Food Pantry. Adults bringing a non-perishable food donation will receive bonus tickets to be used in the adult prize raffle. Proceeds from raffle ticket purchases will be donated to the food pantry. Help us to support our community! 

Fitness in the Parks; Keep an eye on our calendar and Facebook page for announcements! 

Fall Festival and Hayride; One of our most popular events of the year! Held in 2019 at the Daniel Boone Homestead, come for hayrides, food trucks, games, crafts and activities, vendors, and so much more! Keep an eye for our 2020 date announcement!

Festival of Lights;  Saturday, December 7th, 2019 5pm-8pm at the Reading Country Club. The event kicks off with the arrival of Santa (please be sure to arrive BEFORE 5pm to avoid any traffic jams with Santa's sleigh), get your FREE photo with Santa, enjoy some complimentary cookies and hot chocolate donated by our generous community sponsors, do some crafts, get some dinner (extra $), and have some fun with us!

Santa Tours Exeter Township;  Monday, December 9th, 2019 - Thursday, December 12th, 2019 5pm-9pm. One of our personal favorites! Santa spends 4 days with us being escorted around Exeter spreading holiday cheer! You'll want to check out our Facebook page for the routes, and you can follow Santa's sleigh on SpotWalla to make sure you don't miss him!
