Father's Day Gift Guide: Tickets for Every Type of Dad

May 24, 2023 by Madison Marx

Father's Day 2023 is almost here. 

For dads who enjoy attending live events, tickets make a great Father’s Day gift. After all, Father’s Day lands in June, the ideal time to plan a family outing to the ballpark—or send dad off to see his favorite band live. And, if you waited until the eleventh hour, tickets make great last-minute Father’s Day gifts too.

Whether you’re shopping for your dad, a close friend who just became a dad, or a father figure in your life, we’ve rounded up the best Father’s Day gifts that suit different personalities and interests. 

The Dad Joke Dad 

As embarrassing as it may be sometimes, there’s nothing quite like a terribly good dad joke. If the father figure in your life is known for his cheesy, cringe-worthy humor, get him tickets to see fellow dad Bill Burr live for Father’s Day. If Bill Burr isn’t stopping in a city near you, plenty of other comedians on tour right now, like Kevin Hart and Jo Koy.

The Dog Dad 

Celebrate the dog dad in your life with something both he and his furry friend can appreciate. Many MLB teams across the country host several dog-friendly games every season. Tickets to one of these games would make a great gift to recognize your favorite dog dad: 

The Rockstar Dad 

If there’s one thing dads can agree on, it’s that “dad rock” just rocks. Grab tickets to see iconic rock artists like Dead and Company or Billy Joel and jam out with an arena full of fans (and your dad too). Consider any rock tickets pre-approved gifts by dads everywhere.

The Girl Dad

Girl dads have spent countless hours listening to your favorite songs en route to school, soccer practices and everything in between. Whether you’ve forced dad to listen to the Jonas Brothers or Beyoncé, grab a set of tickets to any upcoming concert on Vivid Seats. The best father-daughter gift is spending time with you, of course.

The History Buff Dad

If your dad happens to be a Broadway fan in addition to a history buff, then gift him a life experience he’ll remember for years to come with Hamilton tickets. This Broadway musical is on tour now, so there’s a good chance you can see the show together at a theater near you. 

The Driving Range Dad 

For the dad who likes to spend his weekends hitting the links, look no further than getting him tickets to the US Open on June 12-18. In addition to seeing golf’s biggest stars in person, your dad will get a chance to take a trip to Los Angeles and experience the iconic Los Angeles Country Club course.

The Dad with Littles 

Family theater tickets make great Father’s Day gifts because it allows the whole family to create memories together. From Monster Jam to Dude Perfect, there are plenty of family-friendly events happening at any given time around the country. 

The Monday Night Football Dad 

While the NFL season is a few months away, it’s not too early to get your dad tickets for his favorite team. And with Vivid Seats, you can build an ultimate game day experience for your dad by bundling your game tickets with a pregame or postgame field pass. 

The Dad Who Has Everything 

Finding a good gift for the father figure in your life can be difficult, especially when he claims that he already has everything—or that he wants nothing. Give him a Vivid Seats gift card, so he can buy tickets to a concert, game or show of his choice.
