Mother’s Day Weekend

Mother’s Day Weekend
11 AM–3 PM

Celebrate your mom and mother figures throughout Newfields on Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12 from 11 AM to 3 PM. The Garden at Newfields will be in full bloom for the last hurrah of Spring Blooms presented by Wild Birds Unlimited. Stop and smell the roses. Enjoy live music, lawn games, brunch specials, and local vendors at the beer garden at Garden Terrace. Use the inspiration you find in The Garden to make your own floral decoupage terra cotta pot. 


Inside the Indianapolis Museum of Art, capture your aura in the Color of our Energy photobooth in the Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion and then make a paper peony flower crown in Studios 3 & 4.  Inside the IMA Galleries, immerse yourself in Docent Conversations in Daughter / Mother / Ancestor: Threads of Connection and other Slow Art Stations in the galleries.   


It's a weekend filled with love, creativity, and memorable moments – the perfect way to honor and cherish the special mother figures in your life.
