3 Father’s Day Activity Ideas

Plan an outdoor adventure with these three different Father’s Day activities to make fond memories with your dad this year. But first check our weather predictions for Father’s Day weekend! Go to Farmers’ Almanac Extended Weather Forecast

1) Father’s Day Fishing And Camping Trip

When was the last time you went fishing with Dad? Father’s Day weekend can be a great time to cast a line, but this year the Farmers’ Almanac Fishing Calendar suggests the weekend after would be better timing (especially in the evening hours on June 22 and 23). 

So, consider gifting him a top-notch fishing pole and reel or any of these best fishing gifts for dad on Father’s Day along with a note saying that you booked a campsite or other fishing destination for the following weekend! He will be unexpectedly surprised and love that you put so much thought and time into creating a special moment with him.

To prepare for an evening fishing adventure lakeside or at the ocean/sea, consider packing a special dinner to enjoy together. Make one of his favorite meals or opt for portable snacks and beverages to keep energized throughout the evening. Don’t forget to pack portable lights or headlamps to illuminate the fishing spot and ensure safety after sunset. 

Additionally, investing in a comfortable and durable camping tent or portable shelter can provide a cozy retreat for overnight stays, combining the joy of fishing with the peacefulness of camping under the stars.

Whether you’re fishing from the shore, a boat, or a pier, cherish these bonding moments that may not come as often as they should! Whether you reel in a trophy-worthy catch or simply enjoy the tranquility of the water, the memories created on this fishing adventure will be cherished for years to come.

2) Savor The Flavor With Your Grilling Dad On Father’s Day

Father’s Day is an opportunity to fire up the BBQ and savor the flavors of the great outdoors!

Show your grilling dad some love by gifting him essential tools and gadgets to elevate his BBQ game—even if his grill skills are already legendary. Consider the world’s fastest meat thermometer for perfectly cooked meats every time, or indulge him with a ProTemp wireless meat thermometer for effortless monitoring from his mobile phone. Pair these with our Grilling and BBQ 2-box bundle, complete with sauces, rubs, and recipes, for an unforgettable experience.

This Father’s Day, plan a heartfelt BBQ cookout with dad, featuring his favorite dishes and signature recipes! Create a cozy outdoor setting in your backyard or a local park, complete with comfortable seating and ambient lighting to set the mood.

Start by preparing a selection of meats, vegetables, and marinades using the BBQ rubs and spices from your gift bundle. Encourage dad to showcase his grilling expertise, sharing tips and tricks as he tends to the sizzling grill. As the aromas of smoky goodness fill the air, gather around the BBQ and indulge in a feast together! (If you have brothers or sisters who live out of state, invite them into town for the special occassion—or get them to go in with you on the cost of some higher-priced items!)

Use the meat thermometers to ensure each dish is cooked to perfection, taking the guesswork out of grilling and guaranteeing mouthwatering results. With the Grilling and BBQ bundle’s assortment of sauces and rubs, experiment with different flavor combinations and let dad’s culinary creativity shine.

As you savor the flavor, take a moment to express gratitude for the love and dedication dad puts into his cooking. Share stories, laugh, and don’t forget to capture the moment with photos to commemorate this special Father’s Day celebration.

3) A Night To Remember With Your Party-Loving Dad

For the dad who loves hosting get-togethers and creating memorable experiences for family and friends, Father’s Day weekend is an opportunity to transform his backyard into a magical escape under the stars. In fact, this year, according to the Farmers’ Almanac Best Days Calendar, Father’s Day is an ideal day to host a party!

Gift your outdoor entertainer dad with special items that step-up the ambience. Consider a wood-burning fire pit with a cooking grate for grilling, creating a cozy focal point for gatherings. Pair this with a 5-in-1 professional weather station to keep him informed of outdoor conditions and ensure his guests stay comfortable.

As the Sun sets and the stars begin to twinkle, gather around the fire pit with your loved ones. Encourage Dad to showcase his grilling skills, cooking up an array of delicious treats over the open flames. Whether it’s skewers, s’mores, or savory delights, the fire pit adds rustic charm.

As the embers fade and the night grows quiet, soak up in the beauty of the moment shared with Dad. Let the crackling of the fire and the soft rustle of leaves overhead create a soundtrack for laughter, conversation, and cherished memories.
