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! 

SPRING: 
Easter Egg Scramble: CANCELLED for 2021

April 1st - April 17th, 2021
Though we can't hold our traditional Easter Egg Scramble, how about a little socially-distanced fun?!
Exeter Township Parks & Recreation and the Exeter HS National Honor Society have teamed up to make this holiday a little brighter, and encourage some time spent outdoors! 

The Easter Bunny has been spotted hopping around Exeter Township, and leaving behind a trail of painted rocks...
We need your help to find them! Between April 1st - April 17th, track down as many painted rocks as you can, snap a photo and post to Facebook #ExeterRocks2021 (please leave the rocks in place so others can enjoy!)

Start here and use your detective skills to track the Bunny's location! Once you've identified where you need to go, keep track of your findings on the coloring-sheet form. To enter for a prize, return the completed form (feel free to color!) to the Exeter Township Municipal Building and place in the dropbox out front by Monday, April 19th. Winners will be contacted on Wednesday, April 21st. Happy Hunting! 

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

FALL:
Fall Festival and Hayride; One of our most popular events of the year! Held at the Daniel Boone Homestead, come for hayrides, food trucks, games, crafts and activities, vendors, and so much more! 

WINTER: 
Festival of Lights; 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;  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!

**In case of inclement weather, adjustments to the schedule and/or routes may need to be made. We will make every effort to stick to the posted routes, but Santa can't tour in bad (or wet) weather! Any changes will be announced by 2:00pm on tour day on this site, as well as on the Facebook page. Please be sure to check for any updates.
