When Is Father's Day Weekend 2023?

Father's Day weekend is on Sunday, June 18th, 2023. Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in the United States.

How Did Father's Day Start? says that Father's Day started after a West Virginia church sponsored a Sunday sermon - the first national event "explicitly in honor of fathers..." The one time event honored the men lost in the 1907 Monongah mining disaster.

The year after, Sonora Smart Dodd successfully campaigned to make Father's Day a statewide holiday in Washington on June 19, 1910. 

 When Did Father's Day Become A National Holiday?

Father's Day became a national holiday in the United States in 1972.
