What we're about

Twin Cities Dads Group is a community of Minnesota Fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We host Meetups several times per month, with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, sporting events, zoos and anything else we think will be a fun time for Dads and their families.

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 Twin Cities metro 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’re here for all dads whenever they are ready to participate. Through our national blog and social media channels, we offer parenting resources, local guides, and give our members the opportunity to connect online in-between Meetups. With our National organization, City Dads Group, we have occasional sponsored events in which our members and their families gain access to free experiences, educational workshops, free product demos, and ticket giveaways.
