We’ve curated this selection of marvelous Mother’s Day events in and around the Twin Cities to help you make the day truly festive and unique! From making your own Mother’s Day gifts to relaxing with lovable farm animals, there’s an event for every taste!

If you’re looking for ways to save while you’re out and about, today’s the day to sign up for a Twin City Kids Club Membership Card! It’s a great way to get discounts at all sorts of local businesses in and around Minneapolis and St. Paul. Best of all, our club is free to join – we can’t wait to welcome your family!
