Looking for the best things to do in Houston this Father's Day weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your list for this weekend.

This weekend is a big one as we celebrate both Father's Day and Juneteenth. Celebrate Dad at Sugar Land Town Square all weekend long with their Day of the Dad event that features free professional photos with Dad, crafts, a movie, and more, or head to The Woodlands Children's Museum for Magical Dads Day. In honor of Juneteenth, we recommend heading to Emancipation Park on Saturday and Sunday for their annual EPC Juneteenth Celebration or making a trip to the island for NIA Cultural Center's Juneteenth Jubilee

Unsure how to explain Juneteenth to your kids? We put together a whole post on the topic of Juneteenth to help you have an open, positive conversation about this historic event. We also compiled 20 fun things to do with Dad this Father's Day to make his special day a memorable one. Don't forget to check out our Summer Bucket List for more awesome FREE things to do with the kids all summer long.
