Newark Father’s Day Weekend Ideas Dad Actually Wants to Do

Make sure Dad’s Newark Father’s Day weekend isn’t boring with these great events and ideas to show him how much you care.

All Weekend

Take Dad golfing at the oldest public golf course in New Jersey, Weequahic Golf Course in Newark.

Stay in the neighborhood for some German food and beer at Redds Biergarten. Nothing tells Dad you love him like some wiener schnitzel and Sauerbraten.


For the old school fathers, walk from Hahne & Co over to the Prudential Center for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at 7:30 p.m.


Make it a weekend of great concerts for those musically inclined Dads with another show — Hall and Oates at 7 p.m., also at the Prudential Center.

If your Dad is a little more rough and tumble, take a little drive to Rutherford, NJ for Monster Jam at 7 p.m.


Keep things light and funny by buying your Pops tickets to see Earthquake & Friends Father’s Day Celebration at NJPAC at 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 18. Comedy and family always go well together, right?

So whether your Father is into sports, drinking, music, monster trucks or comedy, you’ve got the Newark Father’s Day weekend plans covered. Now, go celebrate the fathers and father figures in your life this weekend!
