RSVP for Father’s Day Picnic

We’ve Celebrated our Dads (and their families) on Father’s Day 2023!

Kids of the Year 2023

What a wonderful day for a picnic! Thanks to all those who came out for the festivities, and a BIG thanks to our donors, volunteers and alumni who make these event possible. We are immensely grateful.

We’re Celebrating our Dads

We will be announcing the recipients of our 2023 Spokane Fatherhood Initiative Fathers of the Year awards at our annual picnic this coming Sunday.

You and your family and friends are invited!

The 24-7 Dad® Alumni are hosting the event this year with assistance from SpoFI. A casual, summer barbecue meal with hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, and sides are planned with iced tea and lemonade for beverages. You are welcome to bring any other non-alcoholic beverages.

Although reservations are not required, please RSVP below by Friday, June 16, to help us plan the food (we don’t want anyone to go hungry!). If you don’t RSVP you are still welcome to come.

When–Sunday, June 18, 1:00 to 4:30 PM

Where–Grant Park: 1015 S Arthur St. 99202

Pets are welcome too but please adhere to the park rules:

“The City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department requires that all pets utilizing the parks system be kept on a leash. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets.”

Put your game face on for Sunday afternoon as well! The park has softball fields, basketball, tennis, and horseshoe courts plus a play area for kids including a splash pad. There’s also room for frisbee toss and kickball, so bring it on! Bring your own lawn chairs and/or a blanket to sit on.

We hope to see you all on Sunday!
