What we're about

GROUP IS SEEKING NEW LEADERSHIP. Please email info@citydadsgroup.com if you are interested.

Philly Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers 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 with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, parent-and-me classes, and living rooms across the Philadelphia Metro area. 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 active dads! A diverse group with dads of all stripes: Stay At Home Dads, Dads with flexible schedules, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around the Philly metro area 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.

Upcoming events (4+)

Monthly Meetup at the Playground (Seger Park)

Needs a location

Grab a cup of coffee and meet other Philly dads at Seger Park playground (corner of Lombard and 11th Street)!

The playground is suitable for kids from all ages and has a splashpad where the little ones can cool off while we enjoy some good coffee and conversation. It also has lots of toys scattered around for communal use.

We will meet in front of the entrance of the toddler section of the playground.

This will be our first event of the year and we will hopefully make this a regular one over the summer. Stay tuned for a couple of other meetups in the coming weeks as well!

Dads Beer Garden Meetup

Needs a location

Come join us for our first dads beer garden meetup of the summer at Love City Gardens (they are located around the corner from the actual brewery)!

In case of rain, we will meet at the adjacent indoor space of Love City Brewing.

This event is open to everyone who identifies as a dad and to dads of kids of all ages!
