The S.S. Red Oak Victory ship, a restored World War II Victory ship berthed on Richmond’s waterfront, is hosting a Father’s Day event Sunday, June 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that organizers say will be a “day of fun, music and history.” Community members are encouraged by ship personnel to “BYOB,” a.k.a. bring your own brunch, to eat on the ship’s deck.

Live entertainment during the event will be provided by The Lovin’ Harmony Trio, a group which organizers indicate has performed on the ship in the past.

“There is no better view of the Bay Area than from Red Oak Victory’s decks. You can see from Richmond to Berkeley to the Bay Bridge, San Francisco, Angel Island and Sausalito by just turning your head,” stated ship personnel in an email. They suggest community members bring binoculars, in part, to view the Red Oak Victory’s “resident ospreys and their newly hatched chicks.” 

Tickets to the Father’s Day event must be purchased in advance. General admission tickets are $10 per person for those ages 12 and up and $5 for children ages 12 and under and include a self-guided tour brochure. For those ages 12 and older wanting a full docent-led tour at 10:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m.—to encompass the ship’s engine room—a limited amount of tickets are available for $20 each. Ship personnel are asking visitors to wear masks and to stay socially distanced from people outside of their group while aboard.
