Yay MOMS! Rites of Spring 2x, South of Bordeaux, Harbes Opens

 The Highlights

Friday May 12 – Sunday May 14

Moms deserve lots of love, and the North Fork is full of opportunities to express it through special shared experience. From brunch to chocolate fondue, shopping spree raffle to jewelry show, free wine, chocolate, and roses, Mom has so many options we’ve gathered them in special section.

Along with Mom, music takes centerstage this weekend with the unique and beautiful Memory Palace concert at Jamesport Meeting House and the Virtuoso Piano concert at Borghese. That second show is free, a gift to the North Fork Community from the Rites of Spring Festival. Beyond Rites of Spring, both Sylvester Manor and Floyd Memorial host special performances, and Claudio’s Clam Bar begins its season of concerts on the wharf. The vineyards offer a couple dozen more concerts.

And that’s just celebrating Mom & music opportunities! A special food one is Little Creek Oysters’ South of Bordeaux wine and food pairing series on Saturday. Full listings for the Fork below.
