On Saturday, May 18, the 2024 Dear Dad Tour kicked off in New Haven at the Taking Back the Hill Neighborhood Festival. Event goers stepped into the video booth and shared stories about their fathers.

We were pleased with the turnout for the first stop on the 2024 Dear Dad Tour. Despite the overcast skies, many people were in attendance and offered to share their stories. One woman even brought her infant into the booth while talking about how grateful she is for her husband being an active father for their child. We want to thank everyone who was willing to share their story, as we know talking about a father can be a sensitive topic for some.

We look forward to hearing more stories from Connecticut residents about their fathers leading up to Father’s Day. We encourage everyone to come to one of our tour stops and share your “Father” story!
