Whether you want to celebrate with the family, or give the father in your life time alone, Prince George’s is the perfect place to spend Father’s Day. Grab an excellent meal, enjoy a locally crafted brew, explore the outdoors, or catch a game together. There’s no shortage of activities to honor the day!


Celebrate the father in your family with one of these eight activities:


  1. Prepare ahead of time for the holiday by creating a picture frame and button at the Crafternoon event on June 15. The Glenarden Library will be hosting the activity and providing supplies, but participants are encouraged to bring a photo.


  1. Book a table at Denizens Brewing Co. Production House & Taproom in Riverdale Park, where the father in your life can enjoy locally crafted beer and an array of hotdogs with names like Lincoln Logs and Nico Suave from Catalyst Hotdogs.


  1. Schedule a tee time at one of the four golf courses maintained by the Prince George’s park system: Enterprise Golf Course in Mitchelville, Henson Creek Golf Course in Fort Washington, Paint Branch Golf Complex in College Park, and Gunpowder Golf Course in Laurel.


  1. Order beer-battered onion rings, Moroccan lamb sliders, and buttermilk fried chicken sandwiches at Franklin’s Restaurant, Brewery, and General Store in Hyattsville for an indulgent Father’s Day meal — then add one, or a couple, of the beers brewed on-site.


  1. Grab the family and head to Cheltenham Wetlands Area to explore 270 acres of wetlands and woodlands. The region is home to a variety of birds, insects, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and mammals — and part of the adventure is seeing what you can spot along the many trails.


  1. Pack the fishing gear and spend some time on Lake Artemesia in Berwyn Heights. The fishing pier is accessible, and a non-tidal fishing license is required for people 16 and older. There are also trout available to catch for those with a trout stamp.


  1. Make Father’s Day a group event by reserving a campsite at the Jug Bay Natural Area for primitive tent camping. Four small group sites can accommodate up to 15 people and a large site near the river that can accommodate up to 25 people.


  1. Get tickets to the Bowie Baysox game on June 18, when Prince George’s Stadium will be hosting a Father’s Day Celebration. There will be pregame activities on the field, including family games of catch, player introductions, and the national anthem. With a special ticket, you can take part in a Father’s Day BBQ for an all-you-can-eat buffet in a suite.
