Mr. Jesse Walker’s Bunny Hop is back!

Mr. Jesse Walker's Bunny Hop is back!

On Sunday, April 9, Garage on Beck will host Mr. Jesse Walker’s 13th Annual Bunny Hop, presented by SLUG Magazine. This beloved Easter Sunday celebration features an all-day buffet, prizes and award-winning local DJs playing vinyl records from 11 a.m. to sunset. Guests can also hunt for eggs, enjoy surprise guest artists and an Easter Bunny appearance! 

Funds raised at the Bunny Hop will benefit Encircle, a local nonprofit that operates community resource centers for LGBTQ+ youth, young adults and their families. Encircle’s mission is to “bring families and the community together to enable our LGBTQ+ youth to thrive.”

The all-day hop attracts a cross-section of ages and identities with a tradition of community engagement. Attendees can release a healthy dose of spring fever while making a positive social impact.

“The Hop is special to me and so many others because there’s nothing quite like it in Utah. Beyond the top-notch music and setting, you rarely see this many beautiful humans from different scenes in one place cutting loose for a good cause. It’s always pure magic.” –Jesse Walker

Wait, no tickets?
Because Garage on Beck did not reach capacity until late afternoon last year, this year’s event will not require tickets. This also allows the event to quicken entry as well as raise more money for Encircle. Come prepared with a little patience, some sunscreen, layers and a hat. Check the weather!Also, consider avoiding the mid-day rush (around 2-4 p.m.).
