Father’s Day Adventures in Austin

You may have be pondering what to plan for the perfect Father’s Day here in Austin. We decided to make things easier on you, with a list of activities Dad will be sure to love. Create the balance between the perfect activity for the kids, while incorporating the hobbies and interests of the father you are celebrating.  

                If your dad is into live music, there is nothing quite like the acoustics of an open air venue.

Get the whole family out for an evening of music and dancing. Bring a big blanket and sprawl out comfortably at the Zilker Hillside Theatre. Bring snacks and drinks and relax with your family while listening to great music in even greater company. This completely free event begins at 7:30 in the evening, making it a perfect after dinner excursion and a beautiful place to have dessert. Pack some snacks, drinks and some little activities for the kids and get there early to secure your perfect view of the stage. Dogs are welcome too as long as they are kept with the family and secured on a leash. It might be a good plan to dress the kids comfortably in pajamas so when the concert comes to a close around 10:00, they can be scooped up and placed  right into bed. Surrounded by friends and neighbors, this event is a calm and intimate way to spend Father’s day celebrating the dads in your life.

If the park sounds charming but you prefer a daytime activity, try a picnic.

For lunch or dinner, a picnic in the park is always a comfortable and casual event. Enjoy the beautiful weather outside with activities and games at Zilker Park. Pack dad’s favorite lunch or dinner that the kids can help you prepare to surprise him. With an arsenal of yard games and toys, the whole family will be able to spend time together out in the sunshine. If you are looking for some fun yard games, make a stop at a local sporting goods store or even plan a water balloon fight! This park has a full list of amenities, including a huge swimming pool. With an action packed day spent at Zilker Park, stick around in the evening for their Father’s Day concert to wind down and relax. Dad wants nothing more than to spend time with his family, and the park can be transformed into endless fun.

If you are really trying to impress Dad, this one might leave him speechless. 

If Dad is a big golf fan, try taking an adventure to Austin’s Top Golf. Now this is no mini golf, this is a unique golf “experience” that will absolutely wow him. Top Golf is a unique driving range/ golf activity experience that features comfortable seating areas, and state of the art technology. This takes golfing to a whole new level with microchipped golf balls and assorted illuminated targets. Relax with VIP treatment as a host brings your food and beverages directly to your hitting bay. Although this sophisticated golf experience is tailored to older kids and adults, Top Golf offers programs for younger children and the whole family that can be registered for conveniently online. Dad might have so much fun here that it might even become a new date night spot.

Plan an event for this weekend that will make Dad feel special that includes family and friends. Father’s Day is also a great opportunity to celebrate fathers-to-be, step fathers, and grandpas so be sure to include a little something in your day for them. We celebrate Dads all year long, but don’t miss out on an opportunity to make some sweet summertime memories.
