Annual Mother’s Day Events in Portland
Mother’s Day Brunch at the Oregon Zoo
Each year, the Oregon Zoo celebrates both animal and human moms with a Mother’s Day brunch. Participants enjoy a delicious spread of starters, salads, breakfast entrées, pastries and desserts (not to mention sparkling wine and mimosas). After brunch, families can stroll around the zoo to say hello to other great mothers, like Asian elephant Rose-Tu. (She’s mom to Samudra, who was born in 2008 at the Oregon Zoo).
Mother’s Day Rhododendron Show and Sale
For more than a decade, the annual Mother’s Day Rhododendron Show & Sale at Southeast Portland’s Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden has been a local favorite. Take your time strolling through rows of beautiful blooms — and pick up a bouquet for mom before you leave.
Camas Mother’s Day Plant & Garden Fair
Take a trip to downtown Camas, Washington, for the Mother’s Day Plant & Garden Fair, where a gorgeous array of trees, vegetable starts, herbs and flowers await. Buy and plant your mom a living gift at the free potting station and discuss gardening questions with plant experts. Proceeds from the fair support educational scholarships for local women pursuing higher education or returning to school.
