Treat Dad This Father’s Day.

Father’s day is coming up and luckily, there are plenty of things to see, eat and do in the GTA! Take Dad out for a day to these events and he’ll surely feel appreciated. Do you really want to spoil him? We compiled a list at the end with some gift suggestions. They’re surely a more interesting departure away from the ol’ necktie.  

1. EAT - The Beaches Rib Fest

What Dad doesn’t love a good BBQ? The Rib Fest has been the #1 Father’s day destination for 9 years and running. Sink your teeth into an array of award-winning rib houses and wash it down with some craft beer.

2. Yorkville Exotic Car Show

If Dad is a car buff then the Yorkville Exotic Car show may be his activity of choice. Toronto’s destination for high-end boutiques, restaurants and hotels will play host to the 6th annual Yorkville Exotic Car Show. Walk along the red carpet on Bloor Street between Avenue Road and Bay Street to get up close with up to 120 classic and exotic cars from around the globe.
