About DaddyCon

What is DaddyCon?

DaddyCon is the first of it’s kind ultimate dad focused parenting convention. The event is focused on bringing fatherhood to the forefront of the parenting conversation. With events across the US, DaddyCon brings interactive sessions, exhibitors, and giveaways to new dads everywhere! The event was created for dads, by dads who have been there. The team behind DaddyCon wants dads everywhere to get together, talk about fatherhood and be involved in raising awesome citizens. Sessions will explore the first two years of parenting in a way that is informative, and not patronizing. The event convention will take a playful approach to discussing all aspects of fatherhood: from being there at birth through every diaper change, scraped knee and ballet recital. The conversation will explore first-hand accounts from todays most prominent father figures while exploring the bond fathers have with their children.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here is a quote from one of our rad dad attendees.

“My first Daddycon was amazing. I’ve never been in that kind of environment – to know that I was among hundreds of dads who were dadding just like me. It was so awesome to meet other dads who were there for the same reason I was… to find friends, to meet other dads, to feel support like never before. Daddycon was more than just a side event along with Mommycon. It was an amazing weekend that pulled me into a different world – a world of support and dadship that I’ve never experienced before.” – Andrew N.
