Mother’s Day Fun in Asheville, NC

What to do for Mother’s Day in Asheville, NC

Ah, the time for Mother’s Day planning has arrived! In just a few short weeks, we’ll be celebrating all of the Mamas in our lives while the spring sun continues to coax the flowers from the ground. And because this is one of our favorite times of the year, we've made a short list of some of the Mother’s Day activities that will take place in the area.  Any one of them will prove to be an excellent family outing!


LEAF Festival

We’ve recently written about the LEAF Festival and how wonderful of an event it is for the area locals and visitors. Among the dozens of reasons to go, why not add "Mother’s Day celebration” to the list?

Mother’s Day Special at Chimney Rock

For the weekend of May 11th – 12th, Chimney Rock Park is offering a coupon for the Mothers out there that will grant one free visit with the purchase of one adult ticket. Basically, Mom’s In Free!

RAD Studio Stroll

We’ve written before about this awesome event as well and now the time has finally come! Stroll through the River Arts District to meet over 160 local artists. You’ll see special exhibits and demonstrations from some truly remarkable talent.

Mother’s Day at Biltmore

Biltmore Estate has a very special gift for your mom! On May 10th, all moms pay $25 admission with the purchase of a youth or adult ticket on May 11 or May 12. Don’t pass this up – it’s a fantastic opportunity to show your mama a lovely day at the Estate!

Fiber Weekend at the Folk Art Center

Get your art on with your mama! The very talented and very creative artists at the Folk Art Center will be sharing their crafts with participants over the weekend of May 11th-10th. Enjoy demonstrations in quilting, doll making, weaving, clothing design, tapestry weaving, and so much more. Admission is free and a good time will surely be had!

Relax in Style

What better way to begin and end a day than in a luxurious, fully equipped and beautifully decorated home?

Carolina Mornings has dozens of rentals from which to choose in your quest to create the perfect weekend.  Busbee Cabin, a 3 bedroom stunner conveniently nestled in the woods just a few miles outside of downtown Asheville, boasts all the modern amenities a family of up to 6 would need. Slightly larger groups will enjoy Stairway to Heaven - a four bedroom home located near Lake Lure, NC.  This gorgeous home boasts a hot tub and pool table, convenient access to area attractions, and positively breathtaking views.
