This Father’s Day, skip the ties and the mugs, and treat your pops to something he’ll remember. Across North Texas, there are several events to celebrate your old man this weekend.

If you’re still scrambling to get him a gift card he’ll never use or an electronic device that will remain in the package for years to come, use your coins to treat him to an experience rather than a material gift.

This year, you can spend Father’s Day weekend enjoying live music, learning about beer or sharing laughs with your dad. Here are the best Father's Day events happening in DFW this weekend.
