What to do in CU- Mother’s Day

April 27th, 2022 by


When it comes to Mother’s Day- there are two routes to take:

1. Plan your own, or 

2. Forward this blog post to the person who will be planning it for you. 

Either way, with some great things going on in Champaign-Urbana this Mother’s Day, you and your family (or whoever you choose to spend Mother’s Day with) are bound to have a good time celebrating.

Here are our top 3 Miss Picks for What to Do Around Champaign-Urbana this Mother’s Day:

Check out Champaign Urbana Ballet’s Production of The Little Mermaid. This year’s production is the perfect mix of the traditional story we’ve come to know and love and a twist on the classic that will leave everyone laughing. Champaign Urbana Ballet is woman owned and founded. Its mission is to promote classical and contemporary ballet, offer performance opportunities to talented youth, and enrich and involve the community through the art of dance. Catch The Little Mermaid on May 6th at 7:00 p.m. or on May 7th at 2:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. And lucky you…friends of Miss Market get discounted tickets when using the code: GoFish. Get your tickets by visiting thevirginia.org or calling (217) 356-9063!

Hang with mom and create something fun and unique at one of Firedoll Studio’s Candle Happy Hour. Enjoy a complimentary beverage (or bring your own) while you make your custom candle. What better way for mom to remember this time than with a unique scent? The cost for the Candle Happy Hour is $35/person and includes everything you need to make your custom candle. Get tickets here!

Visit Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery for wine, cheese and charcuterie boards. You’ll also get a chance to check out their goats! And in case the goats aren’t enough to entice the family for an outing, you can also get their famous gelato by the scoop. Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery is open from 11-5  Saturdays and Sundays now through the end of December.

And, of course….Happy Mother’s Day Miss!
