Celebrating Mother’s Day in SWMI

I remember when both of my kids said “mama” for the first time. As those two little syllables blended together, my heart melted with my new, official title.

As each grew older, the calls for “mama” grew in frequency, leaving me a bit weary at the end of the day after my name was on repeat.

However someday, I know that “mama” will be replaced with “mom,” and it will be said much less often. These little moments often leave me conflicted about watching my kids grow up versus missing their younger, diapered versions.

Being a mom is a big job. One full of seemingly endless requests for snacks, toys, baths, and cleaning up something sticky (yes, something is always sticky).

In 2024, we are celebrating all Southwest Michigan moms this Mother’s Day with brunches, events and local gifts:

Mother's Day

When is Mother’s Day Celebrated?

We celebrate all of the moms and their sticky, bittersweet adventures annually on the second Sunday in May.

In 2024, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12.

Finding the Perfect Gift for Mother’s Day

Gifts don’t have to be purchased for this special day: a bouquet of dandelions, handwritten cards, or this fun printable will make her day memorable.



But for those seeking a traditional purchased gift, Southwest Michigan has oodles of fun options.

Flowers, desserts and gift baskets are just a few options in Kalamazoo. And if you’re hungry, there is no shortage of meals from our best restaurants in Kalamazoo.

Time spent together is also a perfect gift for mom: we’ve rounded up some special events for Mother’s Day too.

Read on for all of the local options for Mother’s Day this year in Kalamazoo:
