Stay-at-home dad? Work-at-home dad? Active-at-home dad (made that one up)?
Regardless of your at-home “status,” join us at the 19th Annual At-Home Dads Convention in Denver, Colo., to connect with and learn from some of the best dads around the country.
Connect: First and foremost, this is a great weekend to bond with other dads like you whether they are brand-new to parenting or seasoned veterans that have been home with their kids for 10+ years.
Learn: Through informal conversations, age-based workshops and expert panels, this is the weekend to take parenthood to the next level. Many of these guys have been through it all and love sharing what worked and what didn’t work as they navigated everything from playdates to first dates.
Re-energize: Being a dad can be tough and this weekend helps you remember why you are so committed to your kids in the first place.

Still not convinced, read what these guys said after attending prior conventions:
Philly Dads Group Co-Organizer Chris Bernholdt:
Being around your peers in any field will give you that sense of self worth. You see that you aren’t the only one dealing with a kid who won’t eat or how your teenage daughter won’t talk to you. I never laughed so much in my life and its end, I cried. In fact, I always do cry at the end even though I know it is coming. I didn’t want this feeling of acceptance to end. I found my people all in one place, no longer scattered but uniformly united by fatherhood. Read More
Denver Dads Group Organizer Chris VanDijk:
Not knowing what to expect, I was surprised to find the fathers who attended had created an incubator for ideas on parenting, an advocacy group for fathers. And not just fathers who are primary care givers – all fathers. Read More
NYC Dads Group Organizer Lance Somerfeld:
As I reflect on my overall weekend, the only thing I don’t understand is why more dads don’t come to this convention when it had been meticulously planned out at a top-notch venue, with cutting edge guest speakers, and relevant small-group discussion topics….add in some awesome steaks, a few dirt-cheap beers, great college sports on TV, the camaraderie of a brotherhood of dads…and leaving recharged to race home to your family so you can be a better father and husband!” Read More
