6 Metro Detroit Father’s Day Events

Modified: December 14, 2022 | Story by Danielle Alexander

May was all about Mom. Let’s switch gears and start focusing on the dads in our lives. Whether your dad prefers sports, beer, cars, or music, look no further than these six metro Detroit Father’s Day events happening Father’s Day weekend:

1. Father’s Day Jazz Brunch

Head to Shops on Top, Detroit’s first downtown shopping mall, for a Father’s Day Jazz Brunch on Saturday, June 18 from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. Make your reservation here and enjoy a special afternoon with dad!

2. Historical Baseball Games

Every Saturday and Sunday, including June 19, you can see the Greenfield Village Lah-De-Dahs play by Henry Chadwick’s 1867 Base Ball Book of Reference rules. During these historical games, a full nine innings are played without gloves in a “gentlemanly” manner. First pitch is at 1:30 p.m. Check out thehenryford.org for more information.

3. Motor Muster

Is your dad a vintage auto enthusiast? Then maybe instead of the baseball game, Motor Muster, which celebrates one of the grandest and most innovative eras of American automotive history, might be the better choice. For the entire weekend, the streets and lawns of Greenfield Village will be filled with hundreds of classic cars, vintage trucks, motorcycles, military vehicles, bicycles, and even a fire engine or two.

4. EyesOn Design Automotive Exhibition

If the Motor Muster doesn’t suit Dad’s fancy, then maybe EyesOn Design, one of America’s premier automotive events, might do the trick. Vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 (domestic and foreign) vehicles will be at the show on Father’s Day. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ford House. Admission is $25 per person, but active-duty military and children 12 and under (with an adult) are free. For more information, visit EyesOnDesign.org.

5. Jazz Spectacular: Father’s Day Celebration

The 4th Annual Jazz Spectacular has been announced at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 19, 2022, at 6 p.m. The Father’s Day celebration will feature performances by Peabo Bryson, Taylor Dayne, David Sanborn, Rashaan Patterson, Pieces of a Dream, and Kim & Kayla Waters.

6. Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers

The Tigers are in town this Father’s Day, giving you the perfect opportunity to take Dad to a ball game. First pitch is at 1:40 p.m. Watch them take on the Texas Rangers!
