Your kids are graduating, Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and with summer finally here, we know you’re ready to celebrate.  Good news is, you’re in the perfect place, because the Shenandoah Valley is full of venues ready to help you get together and have a fantastic time!

Here are some upcoming events you don’t want to miss if you’re looking to celebrate both dads & grads:

We know what dads love – beer! This Saturday, June 3rd, is the kick-off of Winchester Craft Brew Week! It starts at noon at Winchester Brew Works, and it’s going to feature a variety of delicious beer. Keep an eye out for Alesatian Brewing Co, Escutcheon Brewing, and Backroom Brewery, all offering fantastic craft beer for dad to try and enjoy.

If you love Alesatian’s selections, you’re going to love their Saturday brunches! That’s right, every Saturday you can enjoy tasty brunch choices, beer pairings, and discounts on all taps. Dad will love it, and if they’ve graduated from college, grads will love it, too!

For high school & college grads alike, head to Magnolias at the Mill in Purcellville, Virginia, to dive into their Graduation Buffet! On Monday, June 12th,  and Tuesday, June 13th, Magnolias will be hosting a buffet celebrating the new graduates for only $22.95/person. That’s quite the deal for a spread of such amazing food!

Magnolias is also offering a Father’s Day Buffet on Sunday, June 18th, from 10 am until 3 pm. All of the specifics for Magnolias’ events can be found here.

Another beautiful venue is Hillbrook Inn, where there will be a Father’s Day Luncheon on Sunday, June 18th.  Bring dad out to indulge in a three-course meal and beer to thank him for all he does!

The college grads might also enjoy some craft beer tastings as they finish school and enter the professional world! Check out L’auberge Provencale every Friday night for their Craft Beer Flight nights from 5-7 pm. Flights give you the option of tasting a variety of beer without having to commit to a full glass each time – perfect for trying something new and learning more about your palette!

And of course, with an awesome new upstairs bar, Throx Market Station is hosting beer tastings all throughout June & July! This means you can go more than once, or whenever it works best for the grads and dads (because we know your schedule is busy!).

With an exciting line-up of events, we hope you get out to celebrate with the ones you love! Tell dad you appreciate him, and tell the grads you’re proud of how far they’ve come! There’s tons to do, so mark your calendars now!
