Gifts For Dads

Posted by:  Kimmel Cultural Campus on May 16, 2022

Father’s Day is approaching, which means it’s time to start searching for gifts for the dad or father-figure in your life. Finding the perfect gift can be a hassle, but lucky for you, we are here to help! We’ve narrowed it down to the top 6 gifts ideas to surprise your father with this Father’s Day.

Everyone loves a good dad joke, but how about some real good comedy? Take your dad to have a good laugh alongside comedy sensations Earthquake, Bill Bellamy, Tommy Davidson, and more at Earthquake’s Father’s Day Comedy Show on June 17 at the Academy of Music.


Or surprise your dad with an evening with America’s best-known astrophysicist, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson as he brings his lecture “An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies – II” to our stage. The lecture will review science that some of our favorite movies got wrong. Not only will your dad be enlightened and entertained, but he will also have the opportunity to get a limited-edition version of Dr. Tyson’s new book Starry Messenger: Cosmic Perspectives on Civilization!


Looking for something a bit more laid back for a man who is always on the go? Check out our list of upcoming FREE performances on the Plaza! With Lunchtime events, Happy Hour music, and Nightlife concerts, you and your dad can enjoy time together (without too much planning) and hear some of the best in up-and-coming talent in Philadelphia, like Mozaic Flow, Chill Moody, and Pablo Batista.


Does he love literature and want to see one of his favorite books on stage? Grab tickets for the two of you to experience Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of the best-selling novel To Kill A Mockingbird when the Broadway hit comes to the Academy of Music in July.


But why enjoy just one, when he could enjoy 7 of our Broadway shows this season with a Broadway Season Subscription. This package gives him the opportunity to see award-winning shows such as 1776, A Soldier’s Play, and Beetlejuice.


Or maybe he is a music man at heart who lives for the tune-up sound of a band or orchestra! Experience the transformative sounds of the world-renowned and GRAMMY Award-winning Philadelphia Orchestra at an upcoming performance or a subscription to their 2022-23 season.


Maybe he has a love for comedy, poetry, film, or food!  Gift him the opportunity to see a special one-night engagement like the hilarious Weird Al Yankovic coming in October, Nigella Lawson in November or The Philadelphia Orchestra's 22-23 film series featuring movies like Home Alone and Black Panther.

And if you can’t decide, give him the opportunity to choose with a gift certificate. He will be able to put the certificate toward an upcoming show or a subscription of interest. Best part is, our gift certificates don’t expire.

Happy Father’s Day to all! Need a few more ideas? Check out our website for our full event listings.
