Father’s Day In Vancouver

Mark your calendar for Sunday, June 19th. Father’s Day is just around the corner—it’s time to start planning what to do for Dad on his special day.

Do Brunch

Think brunch is just for Mother’s Day? Think again. Dads can enjoy a Father’s Day brunch at plenty of amazing restaurants, including The Boathouse (any location), Joe Fortes (West End), Blue Water Café (Yaletown) and many more.

Enjoy the Outdoors

Take dad on a hike, go fishing, enjoy a nice bike ride or check out one of the free campsites around Vancouver to enjoy some quality time together.

Have a BBQ

What’s a better dad activity than having a good old fashioned BBQ? Whether it’s at home or on the beach—dad will love grilling up some delicious food while enjoying each others company. Here’s a handy list of the best picnic spots in the lower mainland.

Indulge his Sweet Tooth


Treat dad to some chocolates made especially for Father’s Day. Thomas Haas chocolatier has created confections dad will surely enjoy, including: The Roadster (fast, furious and all edible—accented with chocolate wheels and racing stripes), The Cyclist (made with both white and dark chocolate and decorated with a variety of truffles), and Moustaches (bars made of dark chocolate with smoked sea salt and caramel bits).

Buy his Favourite Booze

Whether dad prefers beer or wine—buying him his favourite liquor is a guaranteed way to put a smile on his face. You could even take him on a brewery tour, check out Vancouver Brewery Tours or Craft Beer n’ Bites.

Go for Dinner

If brunch is not his style—take him out to a nice restaurant low-key pub. Check out some of the top patios with a view.
