Celebrate Mom! Enjoy a Memorable Mother’s Day Weekend in Ridgefield

Mom’s special day is nearly here, and you needn’t leave town to celebrate her! You’ll find delicious restaurants, a calendar full of fun events, and shops offering beautiful gifts for Mother’s Day right here in Ridgefield, so read on to find the best for the best this May 14th.

Fun Experiences to Enjoy Together

If most things in life are best experienced in the company of those we love, then doing something together is even better on Mother’s Day! With a variety of events over the course of the weekend, we’re certain you’ll find something you can enjoy as a family while celebrating mom to the max.

For the art-lover, consider a visit to a spring show at one of our local galleries. The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is always full of delightful visual surprises, and a new member show opens at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists on Saturday, May 13th. As you stroll through Main Street, D. Colabella Fine Art Gallery and RPAC Gallery have unique works on exhibit through Saturday, May 13th. Does mom prefer to participate rather than view? Perhaps she’d love taking part in the Impressionist Plein Air Painting Workshop at Weir Farm!

For an memorable experience at The Ridgefield Playhouse, take mom back to her youth with a 45th anniversary screening of Grease with showings at 4:00pm and 7:00pm on Sunday, May 14th! Or consider gifting her tickets for a future event. Music lovers will also appreciate the Ridgefield Chorale’s performance on Sunday, May 13th, or even a gift card to an upcoming Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra concert. With many unique venues peppered throughout town, mom will cherish a memorable experience with those she loves.

Mother’s Day is certainly special but for many moms that doesn’t equal relaxation! Grab your sneaks and take a jog together at the annual Run Like a Mother 5k with a mile-long run for children to support the Ridgefield Library’s Noreen L. Papa “Mothers: Live Your Life” Fund. Or work in the garden together after taking advantage of the Garden Club’s Plant Sale on the 12th and 13th!

Pamper Her

Moms spend most of their waking hours taking care of others, so it’s a great opportunity to treat her to some special her-time, and off those busy feet. Give her a luxe spa day, dialing in her natural beauty from head to toe. Or perhaps a fresh blow-dry and a mani-pedi is all she needs to feel like a million bucks!

Celebrate with a Toast

Round out the day with a truly special celebration over a meal – and a mimosa or glass of wine. Brunch or dinner is hers to choose! Ridgefield’s restaurant scene is sizzling with flavor, especially at Tablao, Tequila Escape, or TerraSole, where she’ll be transported right out of town without taking a step.

It’s also the perfect time to enjoy local ingredients, so if mom loves a fresh farm-to-table meal, she’ll love Bailey’s Backyard. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a glorious day, and we hope you can snag a table at one of the many restaurants offering outdoor dining!

A Treat for the Sweet

Mother’s Day isn’t complete without a special token to illustrate how much you care, and you’ll find something in Ridgefield’s shops to wow mom. As Emerson wrote, “earth laughs in flowers,” and we’re certain moms everywhere will appreciate a fresh bouquet from Rodier Flowers to liven the house. Accompany the sweet scent of nature’s blooms with a sweet baked treat from Stacey’s Totally Baked, Ross Bread, or Botanika. You can also select a custom box of handmade chocolates from Deborah Ann’s for an indulgence she won’t want to share!

If mom loves a little bit of bling, you’ll find a bauble for every budget here in town. She’ll love receiving a suspiciously small box from Craig’s or Addessi Jewelers… or perhaps something made by the Guilded Lynx or Amy Kahn Russell.

The mother who moonlights as either an interior or fashion designer will love unique finds from Olley Court, and at Bella Home you’ll find creative, timeless gifts for every personality. Add some excitement to the spring wardrobe swap with a classic new piece from J. McLaughlin or a one-of-a-kind gift from nancy O to add to her wardrobe. Don’t miss J. McLauglin’s special Mother’s Day in Bloom event on May 12th and 13th, which will benefit the Center for Empowerment & Education!

Sometimes the best gift is the most flexible one, and many shops in town now offer the Ridgefield Chamber’s e-gift card, which can be used at all participating shops. Convenience and selection are a gift in itself!
