So how did Father's Day come about? In 1910, a Father's Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington at the YMCA by Sonora Smart Dodd. After hearing a sermon at church about Mother's Day in 1909 at Central Methodist Episcopal Church, she told her pastor that fathers should have a similar holiday honoring them. Several local preachers agreed and the first Father's Day was June 19. 1910!
