Celebrate Father’s Day at Fernbank Museum’s Dinosaur Plaza Picnic

Give Dad an adventure for Father’s Day at Fernbank Museum. As part of Fernbank’s 90 Days of Dinosaurs celebration, the Museum will host a special Father’s Day Plaza Picnic outside on the new Dinosaur Plaza from noon to 4 p.m. on June 21.

The garden setting of the new pedestrian plaza—which features an assortment of new trees, plants and flowers—is highlighted by the addition of an outdoor dinosaur exhibition, featuring a family of three bronze hadrosaurs and a fountain.

For the Father’s Day Plaza Picnic, the plaza will be decked out with red-and-white checkered table cloths, while the Fernbank Café grills up burgers, steaks, hotdogs and more. It wouldn’t be a picnic without some good tunes and a family game (like the dinosaur scavenger hunt!), so get ready to enjoy a day that everyone will enjoy.

Other Museum happenings include the special exhibition Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries and Dinosaurs Alive! and Under the Sea on the five-story IMAX® screen. Dad won’t want to miss the 350-year-old Native dug-out canoe, considered the “minivan” of its time, or the Museum’s fossil floors that reveal sea creatures he may have encountered if he’d gone fishing 90 million years ago.

Family Picnic Packages and individual picnic items include Kobe beef burgers, steaks, hotdogs, fried chicken and fruit salad, and will be available for purchase in various price ranges to meet everyone’s budget. As part of 90 Days of Dinosaurs, Fernbank will also offer Plaza Picnics on July 26 and August 9.
