10 Father's Day Celebration Ideas

10 Father’s Day Celebration Ideas to treat the special Dad in your life 🩵

1.  Host a Golf, Football or Games Tournament


Get all Dad’s pals together and let the competitive spirit loose!  There will be plenty of laughs, thrills and spills to make for a truly memorable day!

2.  Take him Fishing or go Camping 


Does your Dad love spending time in the great outdoors?  Fishing or camping can be a great way to spend some quality outdoor time together at a slow, tranquil pace.  What’s more he will love showing off his survival skills!

3.  Fire up the Barbecue 


Father’s Day is best celebrated with family and food – cheer Dad on and learn a few BBQ skills which he will be more than happy to demonstrate!

4.  Visit a Brewery or attend a Wine Tasting Experience


Does your Dad love a drink? If so, then what better way to treat him than with a Brewery Tour or Tasting Experience where he can get to learn the ins and outs of creating his favourite tipple! 

TIP: Check out Ramsbury Distillery just outside Hungerford for some excellent Bespoke Experiences and Brewery Tours. 

5.  Listen to Old Records


Who doesn’t love to reminisce about days gone by?   Dust off the record player and break out the LP’s  – Dad will love to delve into all his old music and you never know, YOU might just like his taste in music too! 

6.  Attend a Comedy Evening


Is your Dad always cracking infamous Dad jokes?  Why not let him take a break from being the showman and give his chuckle muscle a proper workout at comedy night – a sure fire way to make Dad smile this Father’s Day. 

7.  Go for a family Bike Ride


Plan ahead and scope out Dad’s favourite trails and get some exercise that the whole family will enjoy.   Take a picnic and enjoy some laidback al fresco dining!


8.  Go Bowling or Play Mini Golf


Bowling or a game of Mini Golf always brings family together and is guaranteed to ensure plenty of fun.   Split into teams and enjoy some healthy family competition!

TIP:  Try Newbury Adventure Golf based at Victoria Park, Newbury to while away a few enjoyable hours – (Our members can get a 10% discount!)

9.  Attend the Theatre or Visit the Cinema


Grab some sweet treats and let Dad take the weight off his feet whilst watching his favourite film or show.  If you are on  a budget, why not hold a movie night at home?  

TIP: Reading Biscuit Factory, Newbury Corn Exchange and The Hexagon Theatre always have plenty of great shows to suit every taste. 

10.  Enjoy a day at the Races


Whether Dad is an avid horse racing fan or just an occasional punter a day at the races will ensure he has a memorable day out and he might even come back with some pocket money!

TIP: Windsor Racecourse are holding a Summer Garden Party on Monday 17th June suitable for the whole family or go all out and treat Dad to a day at Royal Ascot which commences on Tuesday 18th June.  For a more toned down affair why not celebrate Father’s Day early and head to Newbury Racecourse for their Summer June Raceday which takes place on Thursday 13th June.
