About Fathers Eve

Fathers Eve® is all about Celebrating Dads  EVERYWHERE.   Fathers Eve is always held the night before Father’s Day.  It’s an opportunity for fathers, step-fathers, fathers to-be, and any father figures out there to get together and celebrate the Brotherhood of Fatherhood.  This night allows men from all walks of life to join together for a common cause – being a dad.

The Fathers Eve Mission

This night is an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of fatherhood and raise funds for non-profit agencies that support dads. In the last three years Fathers Eve raised over $27,000!  The money goes for a GREAT cause, helping at-home dads, single dads, and other dads needing support and advocacy. The dads that attend have a chance to relax, share fatherhood stories, learn from each other and just have a great time. We celebrate with a toast “To the Dads” at 8 pm local time.

People at the (Saint Paul MN) event will have the chance to win a raffle, play games with “manly” prizes, eat some awesome food, and try their hand at Hammerschlagen!

Our Founder

Mr. John Francis is the founder of Fathers Eve.  In 2012 John and some of his friends started Fathers Eve in his St. Paul, MN garage.  Within a few short years it has become nearly as big as National Night Out – but this is National DADs Night Out. in 2017, it has grown to  42 cities in 3 countries!  Not only is a fun night out but it’s a chance to network with other dads learning new parenting tips and meeting new people.  A quote from Mr. John Francis, “The greatest part of the event is connecting guys that didn’t know each other before but left the event as friends.”
