Calgary Families (CFC) Pages


We are a community of parents looking to build friendships for ourselves and for our children by arranging activities that allow families to meet one another.

We aim to provide a positive, supportive and inclusive environment for all family members. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and that the happiest and healthiest families are ones where all members feel like they belong, are cared about, and supported.

If you are part of a family that wants to be friends with other families and participate in family-oriented activities, then this is the place for you!

What makes Calgary Families Community different from the other playgroups in Calgary?

Ultimately, we are a family-oriented group and plan activities for every member of the family, not just mom. We believe that every member of the family is important.

We are accepting of all types of families from all areas of Calgary.

Men, women, and children of all ages are welcome.

We recognize that parenting comes in many shapes and forms. As such, our community welcomes single parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, parents-to-be, people trying to conceive, grandparents, step-parents, and the various other guardian roles and child caregivers present in our city.

This is a group for families, by families. The community is lead by a team, and we thrive on feedback from the members and encourage participation from all.

We arrange meetups under the following categories:

Family events

Events where all members of the family are encouraged to participate.

Parent events

Events where parents meet with other parents without their kids.

Mom events

A mom-only event where the women get together without their kids or partners.

Dad events

A dad-only event where the men get together without their kids or partners.

* NOTE: Exceptions can be made to these categories in some cases, and at times these categories will join together (mom & kid event, dad & kid event, mom & family event, etc)

In an effort to keep this site a safe place for families to participate, we have made this group private. As such, the content of the site, including meetup details, member profiles, pictures, etc. is only available to view by people who become members of this community.

To fully appreciate what this group has to offer, it is best to join it. We would love to have you be part of our community, so come see what we have to offer!
