L.A. DADS GROUP is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in their children’s lives. The only requirement to joining us is to be a father residing in and around the Los Angeles area (such as Long Beach and Orange County), who want to socialize and interact with other dads who enjoy spending quality time with their children.
WHO WE ARE
We are active SoCal fathers and we invite all dads to join us: married dads, single dads, gay dads, stepdads, at-home dads, full-time working dads, etc. – all are welcome. There are no group dues or no attendance expectations. We are simply dads who want to be active in their kids’ lives.
WHAT WE DO
We host father/child meetups several times a month at parks, beaches, playgrounds, museums, sporting events, parent-and-me classes, and many other SoCal adventures. We also host Dads Night Out (DNO) events to give our dads an opportunity to socialize, have fun, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood together. Our meetups occur during the week and on weekends to accommodate both stay-at-home dads and working dads.
HOW WE DO IT
Through word of mouth, this website and various social media channels, we offer parenting resources, local guides, and give our members the opportunity to connect online or in-person. Via our parent organization, City Dads Group, we offer occasional sponsored events in which our members and their families gain free access to events, receive free products, and prizes from sponsor companies such as Dove Men+Care, Britax and BabyBjorn. This is Hollywood so we have a lot of fun entertainment activities available to us, and we do our best to enjoy it all!
