Celebrating Father's Day in Style

Father's Day is on June 17th this year, and it's right around the corner! Have you figured out how you'll commemorate Dad and everything he's done for you? We have a few great ideas, and unsurprisingly they surround the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks. This year we're hosting an All You Can Eat Shrimp Buffet to help make celebrating dad easy! If you'll be at the Lake of the Ozarks for Father's Day, here are all of the details to make for a fun day, plus a few fun facts about how the holiday got started to begin with.

Celebrate Father's Day with All You Can Eat Shrimp!

Summer afternoons call for great food, ice cold drinks, live music, and fun games. Father's Day calls for all of that and then some! We've got a great lineup of food and live music to keep the day rolling, and make for an easy way for YOU to celebrate the dad in your life. Join us on June 17th from 11 AM to 5 PM for an all you can eat shrimp buffet, complete with a salad, baby new potatoes, breadsticks, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. You have to make your reservations, though, so visit our website or click HERE to make online reservations. The seats are limited, and we don't want you to miss out. You can also give us a call at 573-317-0100 to make your reservations.

This delicious buffet will be served from 11 AM to 5 PM and costs $15.99 per person. PLUS, if you purchase two meals, you get a FREE carafe of Sangria. Let's make it all about Dad and bring him for a very special afternoon.

Live Music & Games!

Don't think we've forgotten about the entertainment! We've got great live music from the Adam & Steve Duo playing from 1-4 PM. They will be bringing a great atmosphere to the event, and we can't wait for you to hear them play.

In addition to the fun live music, we'll also have games of cornhole to play on the patio. It should come as no surprise, but we'll also be serving up your favorite wine or craft beer, too. No matter what dad loves to drink, we've got it on tap or in the bottle.

Fun Facts About Father's Day

Father's Day hasn't been around nearly as long as Mother's Day. That doesn't change the fact that we love our dad's and are glad to have a day to celebrate them. Here are a few facts about the day and how it all got started.

The Very First Father's Day

The first Father's Day was unofficially celebrated on July 5th, 1908 when a West Virginia church hosted an event that explicitly honored father's. During the Sunday sermon, 362 men who had died in coal mine explosions were honors in a one-time commemoration.

The Start of the Tradition

One year after the celebration of dad's, Sonora Smart Dodd, who was one of six children raised by a widower, got the ball rolling for celebrating Father's Day. She did have some success when Washington State held the first statewide Father's Day on July 19, 1910.

It Took 60 Years

The road to getting Father's Day secured as a national holiday was a long one. It actually took sixty years to get the concept established. President Woodrow Wilson tried to start it, and finally Lyndon B.  Johnson declared that the third Sunday in June would be Father's Day - even though it was not made a permanent national holiday. Nixon was the president who officially declared it a holiday in 1972.

We Love Dad's

At Seven Springs Winery, we celebrate our owner and founder, Mike Bleile who is not only a dad, but whose sons work for the winery as well. There's no better excuse to get out and enjoy the Lake of the Ozarks best winery for a summer afternoon than to celebrate Father's Day. There's still plenty of time to make your plans, so give dad and a call and invite him to join you for lunch on June 17th.  We'd love to see you out here.

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view! 

Seven Springs is the finest Winery at the Lake of the Ozarks with a full-service facility perfect for outdoor weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, and parties.  Call us today to make reservations for your special event!
