This Mother’s Day, treat Mom to a day of beauty and tranquility at DSBG!

Join us on Sunday, May 12, as we honor mothers amidst the breathtaking scenery of our garden.

As an exclusive Member Benefit, we are giving away a free plant* to the first 500 mothers who are Garden Members that walk through the door! These small botanical treasures are our way of showing appreciation for the nurturing love and care that mothers provide, not only to their families, but as a part of our Garden Community. Give Mom the gift of Membership for a gift that keeps on giving through the year!

Celebrate the day by immersing yourself in the wonders of nature as you explore our enchanting garden. Discover a kaleidoscope of colors, fragrances, and textures as you wander through our botanical collections.

Take a break from your stroll and indulge in delicious treats from Little Taste of Chicago, Nacho Business, and Junior’s Scoops as they are offering a delectable array of snacks and refreshments available for purchase. And for those looking to toast to Mom, our bars will be offering up a selection of beverages for purchase to complement the festivities, including sparkling Mom-mosas!

Extend your trip and make your way to our new Trailhead Store and treat Mom to a delightful glass of wine or indulge in a refreshing Mom-mosa. Relax and unwind with the charming ambiance of our screened porch while savoring the moment with your loved ones. Plus, you can satisfy your appetite with mouthwatering hotdogs available for purchase from Bunn’s Hotdogs.

Bring the whole family and create cherished memories as you celebrate the extraordinary women in your life. Whether you’re enjoying a leisurely walk, admiring the blooms, or simply soaking in the serenity, there’s no better place to be this Mother’s Day than Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden!
