Remembering Our Fathers Day

Father's Day - a day to celebrate fathers and father figures in our lives. But what about the countless folks whose fathers are dead? Or who didn't know their dad, but had another father figure who has passed? Or someone who has lost their dad and is navigating grief, but also wants to celebrate their own fatherhood, or that of their partner? Join us the day before Father's Day for a Remembering Our Fathers Day gathering. Bring your stories, your sadness, your laughter and love to the Featherbed Inn on Saturday June 17th, 5-8:00pm.

What to expect

  • Ancestor altar - bring a picture or item to place on the altar for your dad.
