What we're about

DC Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We host meet-ups several times per month, with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, sporting events, parent-and-me classes, and anywhere else we feel compelled within the Washington, DC metro area. We also host Dads Nights Out to give our members an opportunity to socialize, have fun, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood.

We are dads of all stripes: married dads, single dads, dads who share custody, adoptive dads, step-dads, stay at home dads, full time working dads, work from home dads, freelance dads, etc. Our meet-ups occur both during the week and on weekends to accommodate both stay at home dads and working dads. We welcome all involved fathers in and around the DC area who want to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children. The only requirement to joining us is to be a dad. There are no group dues and no attendance expectations. We have some dads who come consistently to most of what we do, and we have some dads who might only come out once or twice per year. We’re here for all dads whenever they are ready to participate.

DC Dads Group is part of the City Dads Group, a dynamic and diverse community of fathers dedicated to being active in their children’s lives and, by example, redefining what it means to be a dad in the 21st century. City Dads Group has active groups in many major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Find them all here at http://citydadsgroup.com/

Dad's Playing Top Golf (Dad's Only)

TopGolf Alexandria

Every month, DC Dads explore a new venue together to foster an environment that creates and builds relationships with local dads. For October's field trip, we're headed to Top Golf. You can check out the bar menu at: https://askaw.us/2mZ8RY4 Look forward to seeing you there.

Coffee Talk - Dad's Only

Panera Bread

Dad's Getting Coffee is a relaxed event where Dad's grab a cup of coffee and chat. Often times, events are tied to doing something which takes away from the ability to simply talk about what's going on. Since DC Dads is focused on bringing Dads together, what better way to do it than over a cup of joe. Usually 5 - 7 dads attend this monthly recurring event. Some guys bring cards or board games. This is a great event to introduce a new dad to the group. I'll see everyone at 6 pm. You can find me sitting at the large table next to the tea service and food expo area.

Dad's Playing Arcade Games (Dad's Only)

Penn Social

Every month, DC Dads explore a new venue together to foster an environment that creates and builds relationships with local dads. For September field trip, we're headed to an Adult Arcade (not Dave & Busters). That's right. Adult Arcade. At Adult Arcade you’ll be able to play classic arcade games, basketball, grab a few drinks, and get something to eat. You can check out the bar menu at: https://www.pennsocialdc.com/food-menu Look forward to seeing you there. If you'd like to carpool, I'm leaving the Alexandria Kingstowne area at 5:45 pm.
