2020 Twin Cities Father’s Day Events & Activities

Is it time to plan for Father’s Day already?  We made it through Mother’s Day, and now we are staring directly at Father’s Day.  FFTC knows that with the Stay Safe orders not everything is back to normal.  And it’s hard to make plans.

How will you be celebrating Dad? If your plans include time spent together, here are some ideas around town to make his day extra special:

What do Dads Really Want For Father’s Day.

We polled some of our favorite Minnesota dads to see how they would like to celebrate this year.

Our very own Christo Peters: “A beer, a steak, and a nap.” (Husband to our Joy Peters and dad to four terrific FFTC team kids!)

KTIS Radio Host Andy Youso: “A great Father’s day gift would be letting me just choose the movie we all watch for once!  I don’t know if I can handle watching Frozen on Disney+ one more time!”

Fun with Dad, Christmas Tradition

Local Video Producer, Music Teacher, and Communications Director Luke Olson: A great fathers day would include:

  • Yummy breakfast, bacon required
  • Time together as a family
    • Going for a walk, maybe include a picnic time
    • Playing a board game
    • Flying kites
    • Reading a chapter book together
    • Building something (Lego, K’nex, puzzle)
  • Instead of ordering out dinner like normal, making something fun and new together
  • Instead of getting a gift, choosing an organization that is helping those most affected by the pandemic and donating.”

Fishing for bass with Dad - That's a great Father's Day



Camping – This is the preferred way to celebrate for the Dads in our lives. State Forest campgrounds are first-come-first-serve, so they often have last minute openings.

Take a Hike at various parks around the Twin Cities. Trails are usually open from sunrise to sunset. Some of our favorite trails include:

Fishing – If you are not sure where to fish, star here: The Best Fishing Holes in the Twin Cities written by one of our own FFTC dads.

Disc Golf – One of our favorite dads, wrote Fun With Dad: Disc Golf in the Twin Cities.

Archery – Christo is also excited about learning Archery with his kids this summer.
