What we're about

Meet other Madison, Wisconsin Stay At Home Dads, Part-time at home dads, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around Madison to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their kids during the day.

Our primary goal is to form an inclusive & active community of involved dads so we can do activities together and take advantage of the wonderful resources that our city has to offer.

Organized meet up events are offered several times per week at a local park, playground, museum, playgym, children's venue, parent & me class, zoo, restaurant, or someone's playroom/lounge in their building.

Play Time at the Park!

Madison Childrens Museum

Update: The safety of our members and our entire community is of paramount importance. Due to the national heath emergency, Madison Dads Group is suspending all meetups indefinitely. We will resume meetups when health officials deem it safe to do so. Please continue to follow our social media channels for helpful resources on fatherhood, parenting, and for updates on future events. Thank you for your understanding and please don’t hesitate to message us with questions, concerns, or if you need someone to talk to. #citydads #madison #fatherhood This weeks park is... Rotating weekly parks (We have done Monona Dream Park, Tenney Park, Orton Park, Hiestand Park and Vilas Park in the past but I want to be sure that we add some new ones too so please feel free to suggest one in your neighborhood to add and we can check it out). If the weather doesn't cooperate we can rotate between indoor options (I can host at my house, anyone that's interested in hosting at their house just let me know and we can add yours to the rotation; we can also rotate between some of the neighborhood libraries or the Children's Museum as other options.)
