Mama's Day Party (A Community Event)
So what are you doing on Mother's Day Brunch? Nothing? No worries, the fun doesn't have to stop after your eat. Keep the party goin' at our Mama's Day Party!
We've curated an amazing space to celebrate our mamas, mother-figures, auntie-mamas, sisters, grandmas, god mamas, house mamas, Non-binary parents & even the powerfully present mentors who've influenced and supported us along the way.
Music, Poetry, Dancing, Photo Booth, Party Games, Raffles,
Paint & Sip Tea session, Prizes, Arts & Crafts, Dessert Bar & so much more...
Donated Admission/tickets can be purchased individually or as a family/tribe. Other amentities and acitivities at the party are pay-as-you-go, so bring some cash.
Special Tickets must be purchased if you want to get on stage and shower your special guest with love and affection. You'll get about 10 minutes to sing a song, recite a poem, do a dance, share a memory or just freestyle. Please rehearse your material to end at or before your 10 minutes is up. You will be contacted beforehand if you purchase this ticket, so we can coordinate and schedule your stage time.
We'll have a childcare worker at the event if you need some personal time away, but there are also a few Parent & Child activities planned for folks who are interested.
This space is wheelchair accessible with a large-sized bathroom on the same floor.
This is also a LGBTQ-affirmative space and all family types and tribes are encouraged to attend this event.
