What we're about

Meet other moms, dads and kids (up to age 5) in Evanston for play dates (with kids and without!), to explore events in the area and have fun! It’s a great way to make new friends and find out about child-friendly activities in the area.

This is a place to connect with other people in your neighborhood. Whether that be to have a play date with your children, seek resources for your family (anybody recommend a good babysitter?) or find a new friend your age. Our goal is to offer a variety of different types of activities for the whole family as well as activities just for the parents.

Members are encouraged to suggest events or even host events. You can do so by suggesting a meetup time and location that works for you, set the limit on # of attendees or children’s ages, and serve as the contact person. You can do this by emailing the group organizers and we’ll put it on the calendar or use the “Suggest a Meetup” button on the home page.

We also have a discussion board where you can ask questions or provide your wisdom to other parents, so make sure to click on “Track this Message Board” on the “Discussion” page to take advantage of that network:

You can fill in our poll with quick questions about your kids ages, and ideal times and locations for playdates, so we can try to suite everyone's needs:

We look forward to seeing you at some of our meetups!
