Hopeful egg-rollers can register for tickets from 10 a.m. Thursday through 10 a.m. Monday.
The event, now in its 134th year, will take place on the South Lawn of the White House on Monday, April 9.
Last year, more than 200,000 people applied but just 30,000 were awarded tickets.
This year’s theme is “Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move.” In addition to the egg roll, events will include games, stories and cooking demos. In 2011, the activities included yoga and a performance by singer Willow Smith.
More than 35,000 people are expected to attend the egg roll this year, according to the White House.
Those who cannot make the trip to Washington are invited to participate in the annual poster contest.
