Please be sure to book your room early, as time and space is limited!

We highly encourage staying at the official hotel, as the close proximity to the event venue and other attendees make the entire weekend even better. Of course, if you would like to make other arrangements you are free to do so.

When Should I Arrive?

The "core programming" of HomeDadCon 2016 starts the evening of Friday, October 7th, and ends in the afternoon of Sunday, October 9th.

To take full advantage of ALL activities before and after the "core programming", we suggest planning to arrive in Raleigh by noon on Friday the 7th and stay until 6pm on Sunday the 9th.

Many dads will be arriving on Thursday, October 6th, and/or staying until Monday, October 10th, in order to have the opportunity for more socializing and exploring of the Raleigh-Durham area, or to simply make travel easier and less rushed. You do what works best for you!
FRIDAY AFTERNOON ELECTIVE ACTIVITIES include: First Aid/CPR Class (FREE!), Homebrew Class ($20), Photo Walk of Raleigh ($25). Please be sure to register for those you are interested in attending!
