What Is Father’s Eve?

The Father’s Eve tradition began when John Francis invited some friends over to his St. Paul, Minnesota home the night before Father’s Day.  The guys had a few drinks, played some games, talked about dad life, and enjoyed each other’s company. They decided to repeat the event the next year and, from that decision, Father’s Eve was born.  
Each year since 2012, the event has grown. In 2017, 42 cities in three different countries celebrated Father’s Eve. Mr. Francis hopes that the popularity of the night and their mission will continue to rise in coming years.  
It’s a good possibility between the publicity major television networks bring such as NBC and social media awareness on Facebook and many sponsors. This year they’re hoping to gain traction with over 100 markets. Grasp this opportunity and dad-vertise your brand with Father’s Eve.
In addition to providing dads an outlet for fun and fellowship, they also donate any proceeds to charities and nonprofits dedicated to helping fathers in need. They want to give support to single dads and others in need of advocacy.
Father’s Eve has become the ultimate dad’s night out with featured fun and support for fathers of all types.

John established Father’s Eve to give dad’s a time and place to fellowship and unwind. It’s a place you can come to have a good time with the friends you already have and meet new ones. Share stories and advice about fatherhood, eat some good food and play some games. While you’re having a good time, you get to contribute to an incredible cause. You get the opportunity to help dads like you who are in need of assistance.
You spend every day being a leader and provider for your family. You deserve to have a night to yourself.

After the game, the celebration will continue at Harlem Tavern with food, drinks, games, and good company.

Father’s Eve welcomes dads from all walks of life. No matter what race, religion, culture, or lifestyle you come from, we welcome you. We want to build a network of events that bring together communities of dads helping each other. Whether you’re 60 years old with grandchildren or 25 and just starting your family, there’s something for everyone at these events. Even if it’s just a conversation with a new friend about the joys and triumphs of fatherhood.
New York City is a melting pot of all kinds of people. We hope that we can bring as much of a diverse group as possible so that we can stimulate more conversation about different perspectives of fatherhood. Maybe someone is struggling with something as a dad. Someone else might have already experienced that obstacle and can advise how to handle it. Or, at the very least, share their story of how they did.  
Father’s Eve is a time for dads of all kinds to enjoy each other’s company.

Other Events

Is NYC not in your area? Is someone you know interested, but they live somewhere else? You can find an event local to you or them. If there are none in that place, you could host your own.
Father’s Eve wants you to experience the fun of the night wherever you are.
