Forget the socks. Here are five fun and unique experience ideas for celebrating Father’s Day — and your favorite dad — in Baltimore…

For the Handyman: Woodworking at The Mall

Manor Mill in Monkton is offering a whole day of dad-inspired maker fun on Sunday, June 19. Join them for woodworking classes led by master woodworkers (Dad can make his own inlaid cheeseboard or make his own bottle opener, or both!) and pizza making. Isaiah Billington, former chef at Woodberry Kitchen and owner of Keepwell Vinegar, will share tips and tricks on making pizza and using vinegar to cook. They will also be slabbing wild cherry logs throughout the day using Woodland Mills 32” portable sawmill.  Advance registration is required.

For the Runner: Family Friendly 5Ks

There are several family-friendly Father’s Day races happening this weekend! Join GBMC for their Father’s Day 5K, head to Charm City Run in Columbia for a Father’s Day Fun Run, or join Annapolis Towne Center for Donuts and Dad 5K.

For the Whiskey Enthusiast: Bottle Your Own Whiskey

Looking for a unique Father’s Day experience? Head to Old Line Spirits on Saturday, June 18 from 1 PM – 6 PM from and bottle your own whiskey! They’ve handpicked three fantastic whiskey barrels from which you’ll sample, choose your favorite (or all three!), and fill the bottle yourself. You even get a label to personalize it with a name or message! (Maybe not the best idea to bring kiddos under 21 to this — but might be fun to do with your own dad!)

For the Animal Lover: Father’s Day Yoga with Pigs

Give your dad the gift of an hour of yoga followed by a tour of Whispering Rise Farm & Animal Sanctuary! Father’s Day Yoga with Pigs will begin at 10 AM on Sunday, June 19th and will be led by certified yoga instructor, Elizabeth Lohrmann. Different yoga skills/levels are all welcome. Bring your yoga mat! After yoga, attendees will be able to tour the sanctuary and have an opportunity to feed and socialize with the sanctuary residents. Selfies are encouraged.

For the Bibliophile: Shakespeare in the Park

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s Shakespeare Under The Stars returns this summer — and Much Ado About Nothing premiers this weekend at PFI Historic Park. Every Sunday is Family Fun Day with preshow activities for kids. Gates open 90 minutes before the performance for our outdoor plays.
