Father’s Day is Sunday. Do something special for that big lug and then you won’t have to be nice to either of your parents until the next major holiday. We’ve got a round-up of events here.

Gather at the Meeting Place on East Montague Avenue for the first ever Charleston Craft Bee, where no one will judge you if your project turns out crappy.

Carifest continues through the weekend with its Masquerade Fête on Friday and its all-day celebration on Saturday. Or stop by the Juneteenth Freedom Festival at Hampton Park.

The whole “man’s best friend” thing goes both ways, so head to the Charleston Animal Society’s Furry Affair and show some puppy love.

The Mt. Pleasant Women’s Pro Classic finishes up this weekend, and Blackforce MMA holds its grand opening (with a seminar by Rich “No Love” Clementi).

Not like you can’t get your fill of soccer right now or anything, but Pelada, a documentary about the sport, will play at the Olde North Charleston Picture House on Saturday night.

House of Sage will host a trunk show Friday night, featuring Taashki Handbags, Cavortress, and Nevelin y Renee. Eye Level Art has a fashion and visual art installation, titled Ethereal, with work by designer Rachel Gordon, photographer Ben Williams, and artists Kenton James and Patrick Nevins.

Apparently, “funky town” is Daniel Island. At least it will be Saturday when Funk Fest goes down at the Family Circle Cup Stadium.

The Summer Solstice Celebration has work from almost 20 different local artists and live music.

Thank goodness they didn’t plan it on the shabbos: The fourth annual Lowcountry Big Lebowski Celebration takes place on Sunday.

Books. Glorious books. The Charleston Friends of the Library host their summer sale at the Main Library downtown all weekend. I’m holding out for their Sunday specials, even if it means all I have left to choose from are Lauren Conrad novels and Sarah Palin’s memoirs.
