Stay cool at the waterpark or an air-conditioned beer festival, and be sure to bring Dad! Exhibits, tastings, and fun under the stars top our things to do in Phoenix this weekend.

Father’s Day: June 21
Got plans yet? Make his weekend special and treat him to beer brunch, challenge him to a kart race, or sip on Scotch together at a special “Drams for Dads” tasting. See our full list of Father’s Day activities and dining specials around town.

Flashlight Walks: June 19 and June 20
When the sun goes down, the flashlights come out for desert trail exploration. Learn more about the flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert during Usery Park’s guided Animal Flashlight Walk on Friday or the self-guided Flashlight Tour at the Desert Botanical Garden on Saturday.

Beerpalooza: June 20
Enjoy food stations and the tastes of over 30 breweries, take a spin on a life-size foosball table, and bring home your favorite new brew from this indoor beer festival.

Hit the water park after dark
Golfland Sunsplash extends its hours to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday night, so you can keep riding the slides, wave pool, and lazy river under the cooler night sky. Wet ‘n’ Wild is open until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and features a family-friendly “Dive-in Movie” to watch in the pool.

During Night Splash, enjoy evening thrills like the Sidewinder, a 5-story vertical drop. Photo from Golfland Sunsplash.
