It may not be as flashy Mother's Day, but celebrating Father's Day is equally important. Moms are typically treated to the best brunches in Chicago and showered with elaborate gifts, heartfelt cards and flowers. As for dads? They're probably getting a new tie (hopefully not the same one you gave them last year) and an afternoon to themselves. Why not show dad how much you care by treating him to a beer or a craft cocktail? Better yet, take him out to dinner. Make plans for pop with our guide to Father's Day in Chicago.

When is Father's Day?

This year, Father's Day falls on Sunday, June 17, 2018.
