What we're about

Has your friend group dried up? Are you sitting around your apartment bored as hell? Are you just new to the area and looking for something fun to do? Maybe you’re just tired of the typical Meetup events that are poorly planned and full of crazies. If any of these things sound like your situation, look no further than Free Association. We’re the cure for what ails you!

Our special sauce comes from the fact that we carefully vet all of our members so that you can enjoy all our unique events in a fun and safe environment!

When you join our group, you’ll be free to attend all our public events such as happy hours, hikes, wine tastings, karaoke, party boats, etc.

Once you become a frequent member of Free Association, you will be introduced to our private events such as club nights, camping, beach trips, festivals and so much more! Private events are reserved for people who have come to a bunch of our public events and have been vetted. Don’t want to go on a big trip with a bunch of weirdos you’ve never met? We didn’t think so!

We pride ourselves in showing off DC’s hidden gems and you will be introduced to a great group of people.

We would also encourage you to check out the photo section (Click Here (https://www.meetup.com/Free-Association/photos/)) to view the variety of exciting events we have done in the past as well as getting a feel for some of the awesome people you’ll meet in this group. If your primary motivation in joining a Meetup is to have a good time, then you obviously need to join us! New friends are always welcome.
