Father’s Day is here, Sunday, June 20, 2021! It’s time to treat your dad(s) to their favorite things to create, or eat, or explore, or better yet, all three!


There’s never a better gift than creating something together. There’s plenty of wonderful and unique ways to do that in Grove City this weekend. 

The Chandler

A trip to The Chandler is a wonderful way to spend time together for Father’s Day weekend! If you visit the shop during DORA hours, you can bring a beer to enjoy while making your candle. The Chandler is located close to many of Grove City’s local favorites, so make a candle and swing by one of our many dining options for lunch or dinner!

AR Workshop

Attend a workshop class this weekend for a DIY experience you and your dad(s) are sure to love! If workshops are booked, or you’re a fan of working from home, there’s always the option of DIY to-go kits. Either way, create something together and use it to decorate your home! 

Coffee Break Pottery

Get together and create a piece of art to withstand time this weekend. Coffee Break Pottery has wonderful items to choose from for you to turn into a piece of your own! Enjoy the memories you’ll make while you craft and create something fun this weekend. 

Creative Clinic Center

Creative Clinic Center is the perfect stop this weekend for fans of a unique art experience. Enjoy a guided painting experience with loved ones, and have cool and (nearly) identical pieces of art to show off. It’s one of the many fantastic ways to celebrate Father’s Day weekend. 


Treat your dad(s) with a meal (and maybe a drink or two) out to eat this weekend!

Plank’s On Broadway

Who doesn’t love the classics? For a chill atmosphere, great food, and wonderful drinks, Plank’s On Broadway is the perfect stop. Come at the right time and snag outdoor seating to enjoy the beautiful weekend weather while spending quality time dining out. While you’re there, snag your first stamp on our Pizza Trek!

Local Cantina

You don’t need Taco Tuesday as an excuse to enjoy Local Cantina this weekend. Enjoy your favorites with this outdoor (or indoor) dining experience, try some of their craft beers or specialty drinks with your favorite Mexican cuisine. 


Burgers, fries, and wings, oh my! Everybody is sure to love the classic and delicious options that Blu-Willy’s cooks up for you. Try your hand at a little bit of everything this weekend to celebrate all the dads we know and love (invite your grandpas out too, while you’re at it!).

Grove City Brewing Company

Grove City Brewing Company is always a good time. With a wide variety of delicious wines, beers, and specialty drinks, everyone is sure to find something they’ll love. GCBC is also a stop on our Pizza Trek, so if you try one of their delicious flatbreads (bruschetta is my personal favorite) don’t forget to get your stamp!


Grove City has so many amazing parks, and with the fantastic weather we’ve finally got with summer here, you don’t wanna miss out! 

Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park

Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park is a gorgeous park to explore, and every nature lover is sure to enjoy it. Grab one of our picnic baskets from Guide + Gear and turn your outdoor adventure into a picnic! 

Century Village

Dads who enjoy history will LOVE the opportunity to explore Century Village and take a trip back in time. With various historic buildings to explore and enjoy, this is one of the many wonderful outdoor adventures to please any dad!

LVL UP Sports

For those dads who love a little competition, and some heart-pounding fun, LVL UP Sports offers the perfect opportunity. Enjoy a game of paintball and make memories with your family and friends!

Trapper John’s Canoe Livery

Trapper John’s is just one way to spice up your Father’s Day weekend. If it’s your first time, or you’re a professional, there’s no shortage of fun when you’re on the water. Rent a kayak or a canoe and take a trip (half-day or full-day, you decide) before stopping downtown for a well-deserved dinner.

Whether you choose to celebrate your father’s from home, or out this Father’s Day weekend, Grove City is the perfect place to find something every dad is sure to love!
