Celebrate Mother’s Day in Kansas City

Published: April 2018

Whether you’re headed to the Zoo with the whole family, treating mom to brunch or something in between, there’s hardly a better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than by touring around some of Kansas City’s most popular destinations. 

Raise a Toast to Mom


Surprise mom in the morning with a basket of scratch-made pastries available at Kansas City’s local bakeries and cafes.


Instead of the traditional breakfast in bed, opt for a later start and take mom out for a morning meal at one of the city’s hottest breakfast and brunch hubs.


Picture-perfect weather calls for extended time outside. Kansas City has you covered with stellar views and delicious eats on patios throughout the metro.


Prefer a more secluded meal? Kansas City’s wide array of exceptional private dining spots give you a reason to call the babysitter and take a date night together.


With KC’s cultured cocktail scene, there’s always an excuse to raise a glass to the special ones in your life.

Spend the Day Together


A perennial family-favorite, spend Mother’s Day among the world’s most exotic creatures at the Kansas City Zoo. Plus, all moms receive complimentary admission for the entire day.


Tour along the free KC Streetcar route in search of buried antique treasure, farm-fresh produce, delicious bites and some of the city’s most iconic neighborhoods.


Kansas City’s assortment of national museums run the gamut of interest—from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum to The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures—and make for great excursions during the day. Plus, with interactive experiences such as Science City at Union Station, there's something for everyone. 


Take a half-day trip to regional destinations such as Overland Park, Independence and Olathe, each full of memory-making activities perfect for all ages.

Attend A Special Event


Skip the itinerary-building and plan on attending a pre-planned Mother’s Day event put on by area restaurants and attractions. Or, consult with the experts at the Kansas City Visitor Center for additional inspiration.
