Old Sturbridge Village, Celebrate Mother’s Day at the Village
May 8 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm EDT
An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until May 8, 2022
The trees are beginning to bud, lambs are frolicking in the fields, the tulips are blooming, and spring is here! On any given day in May, you can see our skilled tradespeople at work, meet the farm animals, take a horse-drawn carryall ride, listen to varying storytelling and music performances, and more. There is something new to discover around every corner of our historic Village!
This Saturday will feature programs like a performance by the Old Sturbridge Village Dancers, sawmill and gristmill demonstrations, and a sampling of 19th-century music. Sunday will feature tales from long ago, the opportunity to “meet” a 19th-century midwife, and more music. To all the moms, grandmas, aunts, and mom figures reading this, we wish you a very happy Mother’s Day.
Looking for something special for mom, grandma, aunt, or another mother figure in your life? Find a variety of meaningful gifts at the Village!

Kicking Off the 2022 Field of Flags Campaign
Each year, we build a Field of Flags to support and honor U.S. military and their families. Your generous gift to the Field of Flags campaign helps provide a free recreational and educational experience for active-duty and veteran military and their families. We will be planting the first flags of the season before Memorial Day!
