We are thrilled to invite all of you and your families to our eighth annual pre-Father’s Day family picnic!
Each year, the picnic day in the park with our families has been one of the largest and most successful events of the year! Let’s make this year our biggest pre-Father’s Day picnic yet! Numerous dads in the group have requested more outings where we can include our wives/husbands/partners…so here it is.
It’s time to bring out the entire family – Dads, kids, significant others, etc. for our EIGHTH annual family picnic in honor of father’s day, sponsored by Plum Organics! This event will be very basic. We will meet in Central Park in a nice shady area in close proximity to bathrooms. We will chain our blankets, sheets, tarps, etc. to just spend some quality time with each other and our families.
** Huge thanks to our generous sponsor, Plum Organics, who will be providing food and snacks for our picnic **
* Event is free for NYC Dads Group families
*The meeting time is at 1:00pm, but feel free to show up a little earlier or later depending on your schedule. We decided to go with an afternoon meetup for the picnic this year so it doesn’t conflict with as many nap schedules for the little ones
*Hopefully, we will be in Central Park from at least 1:00pm – 4:00pm.
*Bring a blanket, toys, balls, etc.
*To assist us with ordering food, please RSVP for number of people in your family that will be attending
*Meeting spot: Centrally located area between 79th street and 80th street slightly closer to the East Side of the Park….so it should not matter if you enter the park from the east or west side. The densely shaded area is located just south of the Great Lawn and slightly north of Turtle Pond. This spot is the same as the area where our group met several times last summer including the 3rd annual picnic.
*We have our fingers crossed for good weather. In the event of rain, we’ll most likely move the day of this event to Sunday, June 4 or Saturday, June 10.
