Mother’s Day Events in the Twin Cities – 2020

Hey, Dads! Mother’s Day is May 10, 2020. It’s a little early to plan your outings. We’ll update this article long before next May.  In the meantime, watch this video of Gianna on Kare11 with ideas for easy gifts.  If you really want to be proactive, check out our 2019 event listing. Most of these events repeat annually.



5/9/20-5/10/20: Take a Mom Fishing Weekend | Mothers who are residents of Minnesota can fish without a license for species that have open fishing seasons. Minn. Stat. Sec. 97A.445, subd. 4. (Kids under 16 can fish without a license all the time). Dad will still need a license to fish (unless you fish at a State Park, which you can usually do without a license any weekend of the year).

5/9/20-5/10/20: Annual Bonsai Show | Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, St Paul | 10am-6 pm. This annual event is always held the same weekend we celebrate moms. I’m not sure what else it has to do with mothering, but it is one of my favorite outings. (Learn More about the Bonsai Show here)
