Father's Day Weekend Fun in Connecticut: Classic Cars, Picnics, and Dinos; June 15-16

It's Father's Day Weekend, and Connecticut abounds with activities to celebrate all the dads out there. Whether Dad is into vintage cars, family picnics, or even dinosaurs, there is something for every type of family guy. If relaxing with a movie or a cold brew is more his speed, how about a little nostalgia at the drive-in or a visit to a family-friendly beer garden and barbecue festival? There's no shortage of ideas to make Dad feel special; it's June, after all, and summer festivities are in full swing. Enjoy the weekend!

We update our Events Calendar frequently so be sure to check back for even more great suggestions. To keep up with the latest family-friendly events and activities, sign up for our newsletters, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Have a fantastic weekend!
