Father’s Day at Mount Vernon
Mount Vernon is celebrating dads with a meet-and-greet with George Washington. An impersonator will take questions and pose for photos, and at 11, 1, and 3, he’ll give special Father’s Day-themed performances. Dads can also take advantage of free admission to George Washington’s Distillery and Gristmill. The estate is open from 8 to 5. Tickets are $15 for ages 12 and older, $14 for seniors, $7 for 6-to-11-year-olds, and free for kids under 6. Advance online ticket purchase is recommended.

Potomac Cruises

Odyssey Cruises is hosting two Father’s Day brunch cruises, which board at 10:15 and 2:15. The two-hour cruises include a buffet brunch; one premium drink ticket; complimentary juice, soda, and mimosas; live entertainment; and dancing. Tickets are $69.90 for adults, $38.90 for ages 7 to 11, and $19.90 for ages 4 to 6; kids under age four are free.

The Odyssey’s sister cruise line, Spirit Cruises, is hosting a three-hour dinner cruise, which boards at 6:30. It includes complimentary nonalcoholic drinks—cocktails, Champagne, and wine are extra—a dinner buffet, and dancing. Tickets are $69.90 a person.

Father’s Day Comedy Jam

Comedians Arnez J, Sheryl Underwood, and Bruce Bruce come together for a Father’s Day-themed performance at DAR Constitution Hall. Tickets to the 7 PM show are $55. Get them through Ticketmaster here.

Father/Daughter Tea with the Fairy Godmother
The Fairy Godmother will read a story, help with a jewelry-making activity, and make her rounds while dad and daughter share tea, juice, cookies, and sandwiches. The event, held at At Play Cafe in Reston, will run from 4 to 5:15. The cost is $30 per daddy-and-daughter pair; additional siblings are $15. Call 703-391-6131 to reserve a space.
