Best Father’s Day Activities in Regina & Saskatoon
June brings Father’s Day on the 16th, and with it, a chance to celebrate dads, grandfathers and all important father figures in life. Take advantage of warmer weather and organize something for dad outside, treat him to a delicious meal, or plan a fun family activity for everyone to do together. Get creative with how you show dad your appreciation for him, with some of Regina and Saskatoon’s best activities and events to mark the occasion.
Celebrate Father's Day in Regina
Regina Jazz Fest and Jazz Brunch: The Regina Jazz Festival runs from June 12 to 16, so treat dad to a concert with one of the festival's talented musicians. The Jazz Festival is also hosting a Father’s Day brunch on the 16th at Doubletree by Hilton, which features delicious food and entertainment provided by the Regina Jazz Orchestra.
Cooking Class at Schoolhaus Culinary Arts: Plan to learn a new skill or make a new dish with dad at Schoolhaus Culinary Arts with one of their cooking classes. On Father’s Day, they have two cooking classes for “Dad’s Favourites,” including dishes such as quick ribs, cheddar and potato chowder and peach crumble. Alternatively, plan to give dad the gift of a cooking class that the two of you can enjoy together in the future!
The Laugh Shop: Check out some live stand-up comedy at Ramada Plaza’s The Laugh Shop, which is a live stand-up show every Saturday night. Tickets are $15 per person, and the show is a great opportunity to enjoy an evening of delicious food and drinks while being entertained and sharing some laughs.
Day trip to Fort Qu’Appelle: Plan to escape the city for the day and head to Fort Qu’Appelle, which is a 50-minute drive from Regina. Pack a picnic with all your favourites, book a round of golf at the Echo Ridge Golf Course, or just enjoy the scenery and relax in the park or along the beach.
Saskatoon Has Father's Day on Lock
Forestry Farm: If you’re looking for wide open green space to host a family picnic, BBQ or hot dog roast, the Forestry Farm Park & Zoo is a wonderful choice for a relaxing Father’s Day. Do a picnic-style potluck, have a game of soccer or frisbee, or just enjoy a stroll through the greenery with loved ones.
Golf & Brunch at the Willows: On Father’s Day, the Willows has a prime rib buffet brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Make a day of it and book a round of golf on their beautiful course after brunch, or sip drinks on their patio, which overlooks the course.
Black Fox Farm & Distillery: Visit Black Fox, a local distillery just outside the city, and book one of their private tours and tastings for a fun experience. If you want to treat dad to a unique gift, sign up for one of their classes and learn how to create delicious drinks using handcrafted spirits.
Pike Lake Provincial Park: Head to Pike Lake with the whole family for a day trip filled with sunshine, nature, and plenty to see and do in the great outdoors. Only a 30-minute drive from the city, at Pike Lake there’s something for everyone with their beaches, outdoor pool, and activities such as fishing, hiking, canoeing and golfing.
Take a Train Tour on Father's Day
Wheatland Express Excursion Train: The Wheatland Express Excursion Train is an unforgettable experience, and sure to be tons of fun for a Father’s Day activity or gift. The train departs from either Cudworth or Wakaw, depending on the tour, and on the 16th they even have a Father’s Day tour. If you want to give dad the gift of a train tour for the future instead, there are plenty of tours happening all summer and fall, including musical performances, dinner on the train, wine tastings and more!
