Fathers Day is always the third Sunday in June. Give Dad a little special treatment without paying a fortune with these Fathers Day freebies and deals in Wichita and nearby.
Some of these free events are actually on Saturday, so Dad can sleep in on Sunday while you make him a delicious breakfast. (Check out my recipe for Fathers Day Sausage Gravy.)
First – because it’s one of my favorite videos of all time and I’ll find any excuse to share it – here’s the Dad Life:
Ahaha! The dad rolling up to the splash park in his mini van. 🙂
Wichita Fathers Day events and deals
Here are some of our favorite activities and things to do for Fathers Day 2019 in or near Wichita:
- Start celebrating a little early with Dad in the great outdoors! If your family likes camping, Father’s Day would be a great time to do it. Kids camp free at participating KOA campgrounds on Fathers Day weekend.
2. The big annual Stearman Field Fly-In is on Saturday, June 15 in Benton. It’s free to go and and watch the planes take off and land throughout the day. When you get hungry, the Bar & Grill will be serving food and drinks inside and outside.
3. If Dad loves kids movies, he’ll love the FREE movie at the CapFed Amphitheater in Andover on Saturday. 😀 They’re showing The Little Mermaid. But honestly, a daddy-daughter experience that puts an adoring smile on his girls’ faces? That’s a great gift for fathers right there!
4. The Wicked Brew Tour kicks off this Saturday in Wichita. Just pick up a passport and get it stamped at participating local brewery locations. Augustino Brewing is offering $2 off flights this weekend for participants. And on Sunday, dads get $3 rotator flights all day.
