What to do in Vancouver: Father’s Day Edition

Celebrate Father’s Day with some kid-friendly (and dad-friendly) fun this year. Need ideas? We have five suggestions to get you started.

Five Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day in Vancouver

Father’s Day Catch

The Vancouver Canadians host a free Father’s Day Catch event each year. This year’s event runs from 1:00-3:00pm on June 15, 2014 at Nat Bailey Stadium. Enter on the third base side, and bring your own baseballs and gloves.

Father’s Day Brunch

Why should brunch be limited to Mother’s Day? We can’t think of a reason. There are lots of brunches happening in Vancouver on Father’s Day, but the Craft Beer Market event really caught our eye. It runs from 10:00am to 3:00pm in the restaurant located in the historic Salt Building in the former Olympic Village. You’ll find classic breakfast items plus more than 100 beers on tap.

Celebrate Car Free Day

If the dad in your life cares about the planet, why not celebrate Father’s Day by visiting one of the local Car Free Day events? They’re happening on Commercial Drive and Main Street, as well as in Kitsilano and the West End. The festival draws on the creative energy of neighbours to remake local roadways as places of art, culture and sociability.

Family Fishing Dayfather's day fishing

Metro Vancouver is teaming up with the Seymour Salmonid Society to host the annual Family Fishing Day event at Rice Lake in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. The event is part of BC’s Family Fishing Weekend, and it just happens to fall on Father’s Day. The event is free, and you can fish without a license. They even have tackle on hand for you to use. There are also lots of kid-friendly activities and exhibits (can you say bouncy castle?) to check out.

Walk for Dad

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC is inviting you to Do it for Dad at their walk/run on June 15, 2014 at Burnaby Lake. There’s a 2km walk, a 5km walk/run, a 10.8km run and a special tot run for kids seven and under. Prostate cancer will afflict one in seven men during their lifetime, so supporting research and treatment is important. Plus, there are lots of extras with your registration fee including a full free barbeque lunch, prizes, entertainment and kids activities.
