Celebrating Father’s Day in Culver City
Whether you’re a new dad, an older dad or planning something for the favorite dad in your life, you’ll want to know what’s going on in Culver City for Father’s Day. We’ve got the scoop!
Is Dad is a car buff? Then head over to the Rodeo Drive Concours D’Elegance in Beverly Hills. A Father’s Day tradition for over 20 years, the annual Rodeo Drive car show is free and open to the public and draws high quality classic automobiles and luxurious new models to Beverly Hills, year after year. Some of the automobiles shown include the 2015 Ford Mustang, a 1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom and a McLaren 12C. The coveted automobiles are displayed along iconic Rodeo Drive for auto-enthusiasts of all kinds to admire up close.
Maybe Dad would prefer the Long Beach Bayou Festival held on June 24-25th. The Long Beach Bayou Festival offers patrons a weekend filled with cultural music, cuisine, and dance from a place called ‘home’– New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou Country. Delight in the specialties of Cajun and Creole cuisine and savor the many delicacies and flavors of the Big Easy. Rich in cultural music traditions, the Long Beach Bayou and Blues Festival presents a wide range of groups, featuring Cajun, Zydeco and Blues artists. Plus the dance floor is always open. Experience the New Orleans Traditional Jazz Band and come Second Line with the best of them at the Long Beach Bayou Festival.
Father’s Day coincides with the public open day at Walt Disney’s Carolwood Barn at Griffith Park, which happens on the third Sunday of the month, and the weekly gathering of mini steam train enthusiasts at the same location. The barn was Walt Disney’s own creative space where he worked on his miniature railroad. It was moved to the Los Angeles Live Steamers area at Griffith Park as a museum, which is staffed once a month by volunteers, including Disney veterans.
Finally, there’s the potential to turn Dad into a pirate for the day with a sail on one of the Southern California Tall Ships. The Ocean Institute in Dana Point will be hosting their annual Father’s Day Adventure at Sea aboard the tall ship Spirit of Dana Point. Join the crew in handling lines and raising sails. The morning sail includes a meal prepared on board by the ship’s cook. The afternoon sail has light refreshments. ($50-$140)
