What is “Vatertags” you may ask? Vatertags = Father’s Day in German! Boerne is the ideal destination to honor your dear ol’ dad. Fun festivities, local craft beer, Hill Country wine, German dishes, a selection of unique gift ideas, and of course -- A PARADE! Dad is sure to cherish the memories he will make with his nearest and dearest by his side in Boerne, TX.
Boerne Vatertags Parade & Festivities
Boerne is known for being the place to be over Father’s Day weekend and this year is no exception. Plan your weekend around the Boerne Vatertags Parade that will kick off at 10:00 am on Saturday. Bring your lawn chairs and line up along Main Street in downtown Boerne from the Fire Station to the Cibolo Creek, to enjoy a traditional, wholesome, small-town parade. Pro Tip: Sit on the East side of the street to enjoy viewing in the shade.
The event coordinators are excited to keep the longstanding Father’s Day traditions alive and are looking for parade entries, volunteers, and sponsors if anyone wants to get involved and share their time, talents, and resources to support the event.
After the parade, head to the Kendall County Fairgrounds! Festivities are in the works including live music at Saengerfest from noon-6:00 pm, a bull riding event at 7:00 pm, followed by a dance at 10:00 pm. Keep an eye on their Facebook page as plans develop!
Shop for Pop
Skip the traditional tie this year (unless he’s into that) and find your daddio something he’s going to be excited to show his friends and colleagues on Monday. The Hill Country Mile is brimming with gift ideas for fellas and foodies, so you’re sure to find him an exciting treasure he will cherish.
Dine with Dad
Stick with the German theme of the weekend by heading to restaurants like Little Gretel and Dodging Duck, or there are endless options for treating dad to an elevated and memorable meal around Boerne. Pro Tip: We recommend making a reservation in advance once you’ve selected the perfect spot.
Cheers to the Patriarch
Order up a pint, a glass, or a flight and toast pop for always being there for you! The Boerne area boasts six breweries and five wineries as well as a distillery and numerous other spots to wet your whistle over the weekend. Interested in a tasting tour? Here are some options.
Happy Vatertags to all the dads out there!
