President Rutherford B. Hayes was the first commander-in-chief to host this fun White House tradition, back in 1878. Since then, it has become a favorite annual event for children around the country.

The egg roll has never been cancelled except during wartime — during World War I and World War II.

This year’s event, hosted by the Trump family, takes place on April 17.
