Father’s Day is just under a month away and you can finally celebrate this special day outside of your home to let the dads in your life know how special they truly are. Celebrate the fathers and grandfathers in your life by making the most out of the myriad of Chicago Father’s Day Festivities. If you’re looking for experiences rather than nicely wrapped gifts, there are many things to do that will make Father’s Day in Chicago memorable for the special men in your life. Honor them with some fun in the Chicagoland Area.
If you’re looking for a special meal at home, consider Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant’s Father’s Day Grill Kit. Head Chef Matt McMillin has put together a full, 3-course meal kit to allow the dad’s in your life to create a restaurant-quality feast on the grill for your whole family. The upscale Chicago restaurant produced a kit that includes two appetizers, 8-oz filets, two sides, and desserts even has a suggested wine pairing that is available for additional purchase.
FOR THE FAMILY
For the fun-seeking Father in your life, consider purchasing him tickets to the Long Play Music Fest in nearby Rockford. This event is an excellent gift to give. Most importantly, it gives dad something to look forward to after Father’s Day. The weekend of July 4th, Long Play Music Fest is Chicagoland’s first music and food festival to return in person. Headlined by rock band Cheap Trick, the festival is also family-friendly with a 30-ride carnival and family area so that the whole family can attend to enjoy the music and food. It’s a perfect Chicago-area Father’s Day activity.
If you want to celebrate dad’s love of sports, consider a journey into Chicago for Father’s Day for a VIP tour of the Chicago Sports Museum. Make dad feel like a king with special photo ops and the chance to hold significant memorabilia. Buy tickets here.
Take a guided tour of 33 West Kinzie, now Harry Caray’s Italian steakhouse. The building was owned by famous Chicagoans like mob boss Frank “The Enforcer” Nitti, Chicago’s First Mayor, and Abraham Lincoln’s Law Partner. Enjoy a guided tour with prohibition-era cocktails and bites and a 4-course dinner. Spend Father’s Day in the city and learn about Chicago, too!
Have fun and Happy Father’s Day Chicagoans!
