Pickering's Mother's Day Tea has the Best Scones Around

Posted on Monday March 09, 2015

Whether you’re a scone fan or not, Pickering Museum Village puts on an annual event that is memorable; but not only for its delicious desserts.  Can you think of a better way to celebrate mom? Diaper changes, laundry loads, dinners made and practices attended. You can’t put a price on mom and everything she does.

The Pickering Museum Village’s Annual Mother’s Day Tea has been a public favourite for the past 7 years.  Give your mom, grandma, or spouse the day off to enjoy luncheon at the Redman House which has been transformed into a formal tea room. The menu includes tea, sandwiches, local preserves, sweets and the aforementioned scones; all made at the Pickering Museum Village by the Vintage Victuals Heritage Cooks.

Advanced tickets sell out each year, so don’t miss out on this memorable occasion, or those delicious scones.  For more information visit pickering.ca/museum or call the Museum Village at 905.683.8401.  Pickering Museum Village is located just off Hwy 7, 3 km east of Brock Road in the Village of Greenwood.  Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

The Mother’s Day Tea is May 10, 2015 with two available seatings:  12:00 pm or 2:30 pm. Tickets are $25.00 per person, reservations are required. This event sells out quickly every year; avoid disappointment and buy your tickets today!  Tickets can be purchased online at pickering.ca/eStore or in person at the Pickering Museum Village Gift Shop. Make mom, grandma, or spouse feel special, sophisticated, and loved this Mother’s Day; reserve their spot at Pickering Museum Village’s Mother’s Day Tea.
