nybg mothers day

Treat Mom or any of the special women in your life to a one-of-a-kind garden party! The most spectacular spring landscape New York City has to offer is the setting for live music, games, picnicking, and more.

Join the weekend fun and make Daffodil Hill your own backyard with games, outdoor fun, and family entertainment.

Games, Arts and Crafts, and More
Daffodil Hill, Clay Family Picnic Pavilions, and Lilac Collection
An array of dishes will be offered by ecofriendly local food purveyors presented by Bronx Night
Market on Daffodil Hill, where visitors can also have a go at garden-party games and activities like
cornhole, hula hoops, and ladder toss. Demonstrations at the Clay Family Picnic Pavilions will show
how to create botanically inspired cards for Mom and craft a paper floral bouquet. Activities include
face painting and, at the Burn Family Lilac Collection, family yoga.

Family Entertainment
Daffodil Hill and the Edible Academy Amphitheater
Daffodil Hill is the settting for a DJ dance party by Uptown Vinyl Supreme (11 a.m.–2 p.m.) and
sizzling salsa performed by Bronx native Johnny Mambo and his band (2–5 p.m). At the Edible
Academy Amphitheater, the Bronx Arts Ensemble and Lehman Stages present the play
Gwendolyn Unplugged, featuring puppets as a young girl daydreams about her future (12:30
and 2:30 p.m.).

Plan Your Mother’s Day Lunch
11 a.m.–5 p.m.

Treat Mom to a delicious farm-to-table lunch at the Hudson Garden Grill, which draws inspiration from the Garden’s acclaimed Edible Academy program.
