They taught us how to drive, picked us up from practice and now is the time to celebrate them – dads! Father’s Day is coming up and is the time to celebrate the father figures in our lives. Don’t just celebrate Dad, celebrate the beginning of summer, too! The official start of summer is just around the corner, so get outside and have a picnic in the park, watch a movie and participate in some of the great events happening in and around Reno Tahoe.
Celebrate early with Dad and treat him to delicious barbecue, paired with refreshing craft brews in downtown Reno. In addition to the mouthwatering fare to be found, you can also enjoy live music on two stages on Friday, June 15 and Saturday, June 16.
Celebrate with your dad by watching world-class rodeo action at the wildest, richest rodeo in the West. Take a spin on the rides at the carnival, enjoy funnel cake and lemonade or do some shopping at the Double R Market Place for all new Western apparel for you and your dad.
Experience American Indian heritage at the Stewart Indian School on Sunday, June 17. With more than 100 dancers, 30 native artisans and craft vendors, join in on the celebration of history and pride. This event has free admission and also benefits the preservation of the Stewart Indian School.
Does your dad have a sense of adventure? Then he might be up for the competition and fun at Adventure Sports Week Tahoe, June 15-24. There are competitive athletic events, clinics and demos, and evening entertainment and adventure during this 10-day outdoor extravaganza.
Hit the green with your dad and play a round of golf on one of the many courses in the Reno Tahoe area. Pick a course in Reno with the downtown skyline as your backdrop or head up to Tahoe and take in the stunning views while you play. There is no shortage of hiking and biking trails in Reno Tahoe, whether dad enjoys exploring the foothills or gaining some serious elevation. Create memories of ‘the one that got away’ with a day spent fishing at Pyramid Lake or along the Truckee River. No matter how your dad likes to spend his time outdoors, we know you’ll find the perfect way to make this Father’s Day one he won’t soon forget.
Have a great day with your dads, and happy Father’s Day from Reno Tahoe!
