Mother's Day 2022
See all events below
This is a premium weekend for admission at the front entrance; $2 surcharge per visitor
Mother’s Day, wonderfully timed to coincide with the arrival of spring, is the perfect opportunity to pull out all the stops.
We invite you to plan for a day in the gardens on Saturday or Sunday, May 7 or 8. Find links below for more about a special Family Art Project both mornings, a guided walk in the gardens both afternoons, a session of spring birding, a free session of community yoga and a family nature walk, both on Sunday.
Enjoy the very rare opportunity to picnic on the Wave Hill House Lawn, or, if you purchase a picnic from Great Performances, in Armor Hall. (Limited space is available in Armor Hall, on a first-come, first-served basis.) Bring your own feast or purchase a delicious picnic curated by our exclusive partner Great Performances, featuring cedar plank salmon, fresh spring salads and delectable desserts. There’s also a special meal for your junior gardeners (ages seven and under) available! Reservations are required by end-of-day Saturday, May 1.
If you would like to picnic on the Wave Hill House Lawn, you may bring your own blanket and outdoor folding chairs. Enjoy this special day!
