30+ Fun Ways To Celebrate Father’s Day 2024

Updated for 2024

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th which means it’s time to celebrate dads. And not just dads. We also celebrate the step-dads, the grandpas, the uncles, the special men who are “like a dad.” 

But, how to celebrate?

Luckily, there are lots of things to do and places to go to celebrate Father’s Day in and around Los Angeles. Check out all 30+ and choose the best one for the dad in your life!

Why Do We Celebrate Father’s Day?

This is a day dedicated to honoring and celebrating fathers and father figures for their contributions to their families and society as a whole. It is a day to show appreciation for the love, support, and guidance that fathers provide to their children and families.

Take the time to reflect on the important role that fathers play in shaping the lives of their children and to express gratitude for their sacrifices and hard work. Father’s Day is a time to recognize and celebrate the unique bond between a father and his children, and to acknowledge the impact that fathers have on the world around them.

Here in Los Angeles, Father’s Day gives us an opportunity to get out and enjoy some of the amazing things SoCal has to offer for families. We know you’ll find some fantastic events the Dads in your life will love!
