Ottawa Father’s Day Gifts, Activities, and Food Suggestions

Ottawa Father's Day - SavvyMom

Father’s Day is coming up and, as always, there are many ways to celebrate the dads and father-figures in your life with food, gifts, and activities. We are sharing some local Ottawa Father’s Day suggestions with you below!

Ottawa Father’s Day Food Ideas

Order your BBQ at home meal from Family Table in collaboration with Riggins Family BBQ with the meat already cooked and ready to eat plus amazing accompanying dishes. This selection includes ribs, chicken, side salads and dessert as well as a family activity! Or pre-order the Father’s Day menu from NEXT with delivery right to your home. This mouth watering 14-dish menu includes meat ready for your own BBQ to grill plus so many sides and desserts, including ice cream! Still not sure? Thyme and Again has a series of fully ready-to-heat-and-eat Father’s Day meals to order like the prime rib dinner, or choose from one of their many brunch selections.

Gifts for Father’s Day in Ottawa

Dad may say he doesn’t want a gift, but let’s surprise him anyway with one of these local, thoughtful treats. Check out the Broadhead Beer Pride Pack that includes a mixer pack of 24 of their beers and $10 is donated to Ten Oaks Project. Or, find the perfect gift online (or in person at one of their various locations) from the Ottawa Artisans and support local makers at the same time! Choose from a wide variety of gifts like t-shirts, bath bombs, or art. We also love the gift selection from Maker House. Try creating a custom box in their online shop to include a few favourite things you know dad will love! They also have boxes ready to go and curated with so many great products.

Ottawa Activities During Father’s Day Weekend

Make plans to visit the antique car show at the Billings Estate Heritage Museum on June 19th. This special event is happening from 10 am until 3 pm and will run rain or shine. Antique car owners are encouraged to register for the event to display and share stories about their car, while guests can explore the museum and vote for their favourite car. A BBQ will also be available for an additional fee.

After having to cancel the May market because of the storm, The Original Navan Market is returning for June 19th. Bring dad to shop and eat at this outdoor market with over 150 vendors.

Embrace the Power of Play at Strathcona Park. This event is hosted by the Parent Resource Centre and welcomes families to come play on June 18th from 9:30 am until 3 pm. Enjoy fun and games, music and more! To register for the free event or find out more details visit this website.

On that Saturday from 10 am until 10 pm is also the ArtsPark Festival and Market in Parkdale Park. Shop the market, enjoy the live music and grab a bite at one of the food vendors. The kids will love the kid-focused activities too. Details are on the event Facebook page.

As a family, book tee time for up to fjour family members and help raise money for Make-A-Wish of Eastern Ontario at the Metcalfe Golf Club. The Playing it Forward for Wishes event on June 19th offers 9 hole or 5 holes for families. Your package also includes a BBQ burger platter for four (vegetarian options are available) and golf cart (two adults are required in the group for the cart). Register for your tee time between 2 pm and 4:30 pm!

On June 18th and 19th, celebrate the launch of the new Buzz Lightyear movie at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. They have special programming planned for the entire family like space themed crafts!
