Father’s Day may not get all the hype and hoopla of Mother’s Day, but it’s coming and you might want to start thinking of a gift. One that goes beyond a tie — or anything that can fit into a box for that matter. Chances are your dad wants to spend time with you.

So why not make a day, a night or a weekend of it? These Dallas event choices go beyond the ordinary and ensure that this Father’s Day will actually be a memorable one for you and dad.

Father’s Day Weekend at the Dallas Arboretum

Father’s Day: BBQ, Bourbon & Bluegrass at Fearing’s

The Father’s Day brunch at Fearing’s will impress the choosiest of dads. Pitmaster Jeffrey Hobbs of The Slow Bone will be serving up his incredibly flavorful and moist BBQ, and Devils River Whiskey will provide table-side bourbon tastings. To complete the party, Over the River band will be playing live bluegrass. Music to our ears!

Something Rotten! at the Winspear

Treat dad to a night at the theater with the uproarious musical comedy, Something Rotten! From the director of Aladdin, and the co-director of the Book of Mormon, this play tells the story of two brothers who set out to write the world’s first musical. You can catch a showing at 2 pm or at 7:30 pm. We recommend hopping over a block to Tei An for a celebratory pre-show meal.

Tour de Fat at The Bomb Factory

Tour de Fat, presented by New Belgium Brewing’s Fat Tire, will bring live music, biking, circus acts, and plenty of beer to Deep Ellum this Father’s Day. The event — which actually specifies “a mindset ready to party is mandatory” — is for the dad who is ready to let loose and party down. Jamestown Revival will headline the festival, and a portion of the proceeds will go to Bike DFW.
