The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is completely free for everyone.
Father FEST is a celebration of fatherhood and families, and all are invited to join in the fun. Activities include live music, food, prizes, giveaways, and interactive family activities. Not only will families have a great time together, but they will also leave the event empowered and equipped with resources for the summer and everyday life.
According to Johnathane Gaffney, a member of Arlington ISD’s family and community engagement department, this event is an excellent opportunity for families to strengthen their bonds and create lasting memories together.
Father FEST is open to everyone, regardless of whether they live in Arlington or attend Arlington ISD. So, mark your calendars, bring your family and friends, and get ready to have an unforgettable day of fun and entertainment.
One of the objectives of Father FEST is to equip families with the resources they need to succeed. With that in mind, the festival will provide a platform for various community partners to showcase the services and programs they offer. These partners, which include the Metro Sports Fieldhouse, Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA Central Branch, and Janes Academy of Dance Excellence, among others, will support families, particularly during summer months.
Father FEST is an initiative of Arlington ISD Dads Engaged for Excellence, an organization that encourages dads, uncles, brothers, and all adult males to serve as positive role models and become more involved in their children’s education. By organizing events such as Father FEST, the organization hopes to foster stronger relationships between fathers and their children to create better outcomes for the entire family.
