Things to do for Father’s Day in Cincinnati {2023}

Looking for something special to do on Father’s Day in Cincinnati?  Here are a few ideas for some great local fun… some are free for the entire family and some are free for Dad.

All events are for 2023 Father’s Day in Cincinnati, Ohio.  

And Father’s Day is June 18, 2023 by the way. 🙂

The Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is open on Father’s Day weekend (Reds are out of town). Kids 12 and under enjoy free admission as do active military and veterans. Take Dad on a self guided tour through the museum and follow it up by exploring Smale Riverfront Park or any of our favorite parks along the riverfront.

Dads typically get in free at The Cincinnati Zoo for Father’s Day but there’s no word on that yet.

Jungle Jim’s International Market hosts an International Craft Beer Festival, June 16-17. With your 6-ounce tasting glass and your trusty tasting guide in hand, you’ll be welcomed into the festival by 400 beers from over 100 breweries. You’ll get to commune with like-minded beer enthusiasts, sample and sip all night long, and use your tasting guide to take notes on your favorites. Tickets required.

Rookwood Pottery has a Behind the Scenes Tours on Saturday, June 17. Resident historian, George, will take you through the 88,000 square foot production facility to see where the artists handcraft pottery and architectural tile.    

If the dad in your life enjoys a nice cold beer, visit a local brewery. There are several in the area that have great outdoor spaces for kids to run around in while those 21+ can drink some local brews.

Pack a picnic and head to Miami Whitewater Forest for a day of relaxation and fun with Dad. They have great walking and biking trails, fishing spots, boat rentals, and much more.
