5 Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day in Charlotte

Prepare your Father’s Day plans in Charlotte now!

Father’s Day is a celebration of all the great fathers and father-figures in our lives. This year, Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 17th! How are you planning on spending the day with your dad? Here are a few things going on in and around Charlotte that would make for a Father’s Day weekend well-spent.

Doughnuts With Dad

The Billy Graham Library is hosting their annual Doughnuts With Dad event on June 16th. Spend your Saturday morning at the Billy Graham Library with your dad and enjoy complimentary doughnuts and beverages. While you’re there, take The Journey of Faith tour and visit the Memorial Prayer Garden where Billy and Ruth Graham were both laid to rest. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. and last until 12 p.m. (or while supplies last). No registration is required. Visit the event page for more details.

Who loves Jazz? Bring Papa to the Festival!

Does your papa appreciate a good jazz performance? Each year, The Queen City Jazz Festival brings local and national jazz artists to the Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre for a one-day event. This year The Queen City Jazz Festival will take place on Saturday, June 16th at 6 p.m. Musical performers will include Norman Brown, Will Downing, The Rippingtons with Russ Freeman, and Kindred the Family Soul.   The Queen City Jazz festival has become a popular Father’s Day weekend tradition for many Charlotte families. Be sure to get tickets in advance!

Race Your ‘Pops’ in a 6K

The U.S National Whitewater Center has a weekend of Father’s Day fun planned–including the Brew Dash 6K race on Saturday, June 16th. The race will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the competition heat participants and will last through the morning with the recreational participants running at 11:00 am. Spend the rest of your day at the center enjoying food, drinks, and live music with dad. You’ll want to register for the race by June 14th and then start getting your pops race ready!

Take Dad to the NASCAR Hall Of Fame

The Charlotte NASCAR Hall Of Fame is hosting two great events over Father’s Day weekend. First, on Saturday, June 16th the NASCAR Hall Of Fame will host the Strider Cup! The Strider Cup is a nationwide event that lets young (ages 2-6) kids experience the thrill of racing from the seats of their strider bikes. See the event schedule, find more information, and register your little ones for this awesome event. On Sunday, June 17th celebrate dad with an all-inclusive brunch and exclusive first look at the NASCAR Hall Of Fame’s next exhibit, 1948 Proving Grounds–a tribute to the fathers of modern racing. Your ticket will also include general admission into the museum, a family photo, and 25% off in the Gear Shop! Get tickets for either the 10 a. m. session or the 11:30 a.m. session. 

Have A Brewster With Your ‘Ol Man

Is your dad into craft beer? Explore a few of Charlotte’s most popular craft breweries with dad on a Charlotte Brewery Tour.  Grab tickets for Sunday, June 17th’s Brewster tour. Your ticket will get you a ride with George (a remodeled school bus named after Queen Charlotte’s husband) and a beer pour of your choice at Rock Bottom Brewery, Catawba Brewery, and Red Clay Cider Works.   Buy tickets for you and dad before they're sold out!
