What we're about

Boston Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers in the Massachusetts and Rhode Island areas, who take an active role in our children’s lives. We seek to create an online meetup group to bring fathers together in person. We'll meet several times per week, with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, parent-and-me classes, and living rooms across the greater Boston Metro and Providence, Rhode Island areas. We'll also organize parenting workshops and Dads Nights Out to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood.

There are not enough resources, social groups, or services for dads. This is a destination for all active dads. A diverse group with dads of all stripes: stay-at-home dads, dads with flexible schedules, work from home dads, freelancers, working dads, teachers, and involved fathers in and around the Boston Metro and Providence, RI areas to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children.

** Please note this group is strictly for Dads, we understand sometimes wives will try to join for their significant others but we encourage them to join on their own accord. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything dad related.

Library Story/Music/Playtime (downtown Providence)

Grace Episcopal Church

While the Providence Public Library is undergoing renovations, their awesome children's programs have found a temporary hope at Grace Episcopal Church downtown. This program combines time for play and socialization with a story time that includes movement, songs, finger plays and wonderful children’s literature. * Please Note: Please access all sessions through the CHAPEL STREET door. PPL staff will be available at the door for the first 30 minutes of each session to provide assistance. All sessions are held on the 2nd floor and strollers must be left on the ground level. These sessions are not handicapped accessible.

Team Trivia Night (downtown Providence)

Providence GPub

Diaper changes, pick-ups, drop-offs, laundry, cleaning can numb the mind...let's sharpen ours as a team and win some trivia. GPub in downtown Providence is a cool spot with good food and accessible by car or public transportation. Teams can be any number of players, but please RSVP in advance if possible so we can scout the right table.
