For families in Rockland County, NY and neighboring Bergen County, NJ, we've compiled a list of fun and low-cost Father's Day events and activities, from a special baseball game in Pomona, NY to a Dad-themed nature walk in Tenafly, NJ.
In honor of Father's Day on June 16, kids can spend some special time with the men in their lives—fathers, uncles, grandparents, or other family members—or make them something special that says "I love you." Here are some ideas on where to go and what to do:
Create a Handmade Gift
Artists of all ages can make their dads a special gift during a Seasonal Workshop at Jill’s Ceramics in West Nyack. Make Dad a mug, picture frame, or something else that catches your eye. Toddler workshops are held Mondays and Tuesdays at 12pm. All-ages workshops are held Fridays at 3pm.
Get Moving in the Outdoors
The Tenafly Nature Center in Tenafly, NJ, hosts a guided Father's Day Walk in the woods on June 16 (free for fathers!). Note: In case of inclement weather, this program will be canceled.
Take Dad Out to the Ball Game
When the Rockland Boulders face the New Jersey Jackals on June 16 at Provident Bank Park in Pomona, kids and their dads will be invited onto the field to play catch after the game. Plus, the first 1,500 kids in attendance will get a free BoulderBird Growth Chart.

Make it a Family Fun Day
Head to Yonkers on June 16 for a Family Day on Father's Day at the Hudson River Museum. There will be family gallery tours for ages 4-12 at 1:30pm and 3pm. From 1-4pm, participate in family art projects (make Victorian wallpaper with found objects) and take pictures together to turn into souvenir photo strips. And at 3:30pm, experience L'Amore della Music, in which five orchestra members give an hour-long performance featuring classical music.
