Celebrate Father's Day 2024 in Prince George: An Event Guide

by Bailey Bouwman

Father's Day is just around the corner, and Prince George has an array of events to celebrate the dads in our community. Whether your dad loves classic cars, historical sites, delicious food, or thrilling rodeo action, there's something for everyone -- I do feel like there is definitely less to do than Mother's Day, but perhaps that's because The Show & Shine takes center stage in Prince George.

Our Local Father's Day Gift Guide is Coming Soon. 

Here are some top events happening on Sunday, June 16th, 2024, to make this Father's Day unforgettable.
