We love all holidays and celebrations here at Great Performances, but there’s really nothing quite as special as celebrating the moms in our lives! With Covid restrictions being lifted and warmer weather coming, we hope you’ll be able to celebrate with your loved ones in person this Mother’s Day weekend.
We’ve rounded up some great activities for you to enjoy with the moms in your life. You can head upstate to the First Annual Women in Food and Farming Festival at Stone Ridge Orchards; head to the Bronx to enjoy the jewel that is Wave Hill and their annual Mother’s Day celebration — this year, as a picnic on the lawn; or enjoy a picnic meal outdoors at Brooklyn Museum or to take home.
Our venue partners are also sharing special Mother’s Day packages. Picnic on the lawns of Wave Hill, an idyllic garden in The Bronx, or pick up a basket at Brooklyn Museum and enjoy al fresco dining.
Looking for something a little different? The First Annual Women in Food and Farming Festival takes place on Saturday, May 8 at Stone Ridge Orchard a quick two-hour drive from New York City. It’s the perfect way to celebrate mom and women as you explore the outdoor market – and perhaps pick up some goodies for Sunday!
