What we're about

Puget Sound Dads Group is a community of fathers from Olympia to Everett and as far north as the Canadian border and the San Juan Islands. We believe in breaking the “Seattle Freeze” and welcome all dads to feel part of this amazing group several times a month with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, parent-and-me classes, and living rooms across the Puget Sound area. We'll also organize parenting workshops and "Dad's Night Out" events to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate modern-day parenthood.

We represent a diverse group in the very unique Puget Sound area: at-home and working dads, married, single and divorced dads, straight and gay dads, young and old dads, dads of different ethnic and racial backgrounds, and dads across the economic spectrum. We do have one thing that we recommend to join our group and that is you must be a dad. Which means, of course, no moms/wives/spouses/partners. If you don’t have children, sorry but pets don’t count, then this isn’t the group for you.

Puget Sound Dads Group is a hub of our national organization, City Dads Group, which organizes communities of fathers across the United States.
