One of the best parts about Father’s Day is spending quality time with your dad, husband or the man in your life. Luckily, we live near plenty of neighborhoods and towns that are hosting some amazing Father’s Day events that are perfect for the whole family. Here are a few of our favorites for 2017.
The Best Long Island Father’s Day Events of 2017
The Coolest Pop at the Long Island Children’s Museum
Open to children ages three and up, this fun event is the perfect place for kids to make homemade, heartfelt gifts for dad and grandpa. Stop by the museum for the day and check out this workshop, which is free with admission.
It’ll only last around 10 to 15 minutes, but that’s all the time your child will need to make a bright Father’s Day card and paint a colorful Popsicle. The gifts might seem small and simple, but dad will surely be able to cherish them forever.
Father’s Day at Belmont Park
One of the best Father’s Day events in our area will take place at Belmont Park in Elmont. From 7 to 9 a.m., visit Breakfast at Belmont, where you and your family can enjoy reasonably priced breakfast during the morning’s Thoroughbreds training.
Afterwards, you will be treated to a free tram ride to the stable area for a free Paddock Show and Starting Gate demonstration. Then, at 10 a.m. on Father’s Day, the Belmont gates will open to the public for a day of races, which you can attend for a $5 admission fee.
Besides tons of competitive horse races, dads will be able to enjoy a complimentary bourbon tasting and vintage car show. There will also be family fun activities and free giveaways, like one for a stainless steel insulated tumbler.
For some betting advice, Belmont Park Live, which airs on MSG+, and Talking Horses will be hosting live shows for up-to-date, in-depth race analysis.

Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse in Bayside is the premier Father’s Day brunch spot in our area. This Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., come by for a prix fixe brunch special for just $42 per person. There you will be able to enjoy delicious brunch specials like:
