Best of Father's Day


Wondering what to do for this Father's Day? Here are our favorite out-of-the-box Father's Day adventures for a unique Father's Day celebration in Richmond, VA.

IDEA #1: Richmond Craft Brewery Tour


Little known fact: Richmond, VA established the first ever trolley car system in 1888. Lucky for us these machines have been maintained and are now used to create unforgettable experiences.

PartyRVA has teamed up with RVATrolley to make this Father's Day extra special. Book a craft brewery tour (our favorite) or any other RVATrolley tour andreceive a 15 percent discount off of any tour, just mention PartyRVA when you book.

Check them out here.


IDEA #2: Bubble Soccer


Bubble soccer is the hottest item in Richmond right now. This activity is a no-brainer for Father's Day. Bubble soccer is just that. Two teams of five people bash, jump, boing and roll around the field trying to play soccer. While it is a sport, it's hard to not get caught up in the fun and forget all about the soccer ball!

PartyRVA is committed to making your Father's Day activities special. Use the Promo Code PARTYRVA for a free 15 minutes of fun. Check it out here!


IDEA #3: Cocktail Workshop


Who said Father's Day weekend couldn't include cocktails? Rally the neighbors and get your shake, stir, and sip on! Learn to make unique and exciting drinks like the salted caramel whiskey sour or the moonshine old-fashioned, with the author of the bestselling book Craft Cocktails at Home, Kevin Liu. Customize your own workshop or join one!

As we mentioned earlier, PartyRVA is committed to Father's Day. Message Tin Pan Cocktails through our website and receive a 10% discount on food and 25% off music for your event.


IDEA #4: Go-Karting


There's nothing like a day spent embracing the competitive spirit. At Thunderbolt Indoor Karting, the whole family is free to engage in friendly racing that tops speeds of 45 mph. These machines are state-of-the-art and imported from Italy, they are quick and made to bring you and the family an unforgettable thrill.

IDEA #5: Billiard's


Want to get out of the sun and just enjoy some leisure time with Dad this Father's Day? Right here in Richmond is Greenleaf Billiards and they will bring you all of that and more! Greenleaf is named after billiards legend, Ralph Greenleaf, a 20-time World Champion. Greenleaf is floored with subway tiles, sports high ceilings and has 12 full-size tables to bring like-minded folks together on special days like this Father's Day.

IDEA #6: Slide the City - The 1,000 ft. City Water Slide


The world's largest water slide to hit asphalt is an all day water war with music, food, drinks and it might one of the most fun activities you will find in Richmond. Slide the City travels the country bringing people together to give them unique experiences. This world-record water slide is coming to Richmond Father's Day weekend (how lucky are we) and for $35 you can score a water tube, a mouth guard, a drawstring bag and 3,000 feet of tubing space!

And something tells me there will be Chikfila.


IDEA #7: Saturday Classic at the Byrd Theatre


This Saturday at 10 am, the famous Byrd Theatre is hosting the classic Warner Bros cartoon, Sandlot. Preluding the show will be a sing-a-long of Take Me Out to the Ballgame performed by Richmond notable, Bob Gulledge, on the Mighty Wurlitzer organ.

Prior to the show, Nutzy the flying squirrel, will be there to greet guests. Get there early for a picture!

As if that isn't enough fun, how about some baseball?


IDEA #8: A Squirrel's Baseball Game



Nothing beats baseball on Father's Day weekend. This year here in Richmond we are lucky enough to have our awesome local minor league team, the Flying Squirrels, in town all weekend.

The Squirrel's schedule this weekend:

Friday at 7:05 pm vs. Portland Sea Dogs
