Ideas for fun things to do together in Fayetteville on Mother's Day:


Mothers Day MenuMoms, noms, and mimosas are a classic mother’s day combo, and Fayetteville is loaded with options to thank your mom with a delicious brunch! There’s an option for every type of mom, whether she’d prefer an upscale experience, a patio with a view, savoring classic favorites, or trying something new.

Browse our list of brunch spots in Fayetteville and find the one that’s perfect for you and mom to enjoy together! We bet she'd also love to grab brunch to pair with a stroll around the Fayetteville Farmers Market - take mom out on the Saturday morning before the big day for a special treat. You could also make it decadent with a reservation to Mother's Day Brunch at Pink House Alchemy, where the menu caters to foodies. If you're looking to really impress your mom with an amazing meal for the occasion, take her to the Mother's Day Brunch Buffet (yes, BUFFET!) at Ella's Table. Elegant and endless, the buffets at Ella's are renowned in Fayetteville, and this one is a real treat. Take a sneak peek at the menu and get hungry!


If you’re looking for ways to spend quality time with your mom this Mother’s Day, Fayetteville is your place. Take her shopping downtown at the Block Street Boutiques or in the Pink District, the site of several women-owned businesses, including Sleet City. Fayetteville also is home to a number of popular flea markets, thrift stores, vintage markets, and consignment shops worth exploring. If it’s more mom’s style, admire some local artwork, browse a bookstore, or catch a play at TheatreSquared. The possibilities are endless!
