What we're about

Kansas City Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We host meet-ups several times per month, with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, sporting events, parent-and-me classes, and anywhere else we feel compelled within the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area. 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 a group with 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 Kansas City 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 have some dads who come consistently to most of what we do, and we have some dads who might only come out once or twice per year. We’re here for all dads whenever they are ready to participate.

Through our blog and social media channels, we offer parenting resources, local guides, and give our members the opportunity to connect online in-between meet ups. Via our parent organization, City Dads Group, we offer occasional sponsored events in which our members and their families gain access to free experiences, educational workshops, free product demos, and prizes from brands.

Kansas City Dads Group is part of the City Dads Group, a dynamic and diverse community of fathers dedicated to being active in their children’s lives and, by example, redefining what it means to be a dad in the 21st century. City Dads Group has active groups in many major metropolitan areas throughout the United States. Find them all here at http://citydadsgroup.com/

** Please note this group is strictly for Dads, we understand sometimes wives will try 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.

***As Dads we respect the rights of our in home hosts and also the privacy and safety of our member families. If you are new to the group we invite you to meetup with us at one of our upcoming public events. We look forward to getting to know you and welcome you to our great network of Dads in the KC area. In home playgroup location information is shared upon request. Thank you for understanding the importance of our privacy and safety.

Library Friday

Monthly library outing! If you haven't been before just make sure and park in the library garage on the corner of Baltimore & 10th Street with all the books on the outside of it! Bring your ticket in and they will stamp it for free parking!

We are going to make this our regular outing for the first Friday of the month. It is a free program, AND they partner with the Bookmobile so that after it is over, the children may go outside and pick a book to take home free as well!

Family Outing - Trucks and Big Rigs for Kids

The Theatre in the Park

Have you ever wondered what the inside of that big rig or tractor looks like? Do you have a child who loves trucks? Bring them out to the park to explore trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles up close. Crawl, climb, and sit in the driver’s seat and talk with the real life operators of these vehicles. Be one of the first 100 children and get a free construction worker hat! Suggested donations of $10 per vehicle will be accepted and proceeds from this event benefit JCPRD Special Populations/Special Olympics.
