Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 20th 2021, and we know you want to do something special to celebrate Dad! If you’re struggling to come up with an idea, our child care center in Raleigh is sharing some free and low-cost Father’s Day activities in and around the Triangle.
Birds of Prey on Father’s Day

When: Saturday, June 19th; 11:00 – 3:00 P.M.
Visit Logan’s Garden Shop for Birds of Prey for Father’s Day, a free event hosted by the American Wildlife Refuge, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates wild birds. There will be displays and stations set up to learn about wild raptors and other birds of prey that make the Triangle home.
Father’s Day Downtown Murals and Art Tour
Where: 300 Salisbury St (Corner of Salisbury and Martin), Raleigh
When: Sunday, June 20th; 10:30 – 11:45 A.M.
This is a guided tour through Downtown Raleigh that takes you off the beaten path to see amazing, vibrant murals and large scale art around the city.

This is a “pay-what-you-want” tour and does require registration to ensure proper social distance is available. Register here to save your family’s spot.
