For the first time since 2020, the Daddy/Daughter Dance at North Division High School is back.
The dance, now in its 20th year, is organized by Milwaukee Recreation in partnership with the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative.
Usually occurring around Valentine’s Day, the event has been lauded as a memorable opportunity for fathers, father figures and daughters to bond over food, dancing, gifts and a live DJ.
In previous years, the event has drawn over 1,000 dancers.
The 2021 and 2022 dances were canceled because of COVID-19 safety concerns.
Milwaukee Recreation said it is following Milwaukee Public Schools’ COVID-19 guidelines for this year’s event, meaning that masks are optional.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the event continues until 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18 at North Division High School, located at 1011 W. Center St. Daughters must be from 1 to 17 years old to attend. Any father figure (grandfather, cousin, uncle, family friend, etc.) is welcome to accompany a daughter.
“This is one of the best opportunities for dads, father figures, and daughters to celebrate one another and share an unforgettable experience,” Milwaukee Recreation spokesperson Claire McHugh said about the event.
