Daddy Daughter Dance scheduled for Feb. 3


Murphy schedules 8th annual Daddy Daughter Dance

‘Diamonds and Denim’ theme sets fun evening


MURPHY (January 4, 2024) The father-daughter relationship is one of the most precious and unique connections that exist, characterized by love, trust, and companionship, built on the foundation of mutual understanding and support. To celebrate that special bond, the City of Murphy is hosting the eighth annual Daddy Daughter Dance on Saturday, Feb. 3.

“Our theme this year is Diamonds and Denim, and we’re hoping that attendees will have fun getting into the spirit by mixing their wardrobe with both glittery and rugged,” says Murphy Recreation Specialist Lauren Mitchell. “Our theme will give fathers and daughters a chance to dress both ‘up and down’ giving a true Diamonds and Denim flair to our event.” 

The event will be highlighted by a deliciously festive charcuterie spread, tasteful dancing, plentiful refreshments, and fun activities like crafts, karaoke, and various prizes. Raffles will be held throughout the evening.

The highly popular event is set for Saturday, Feb. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Murphy Community Center, 205 North Murphy Road. The cost is $35 for a father and daughter couple, and $15 for each additional daughter. While there is no limit to the number of daughters per family who can participate, daughters are limited to 21 years of age and under.

Registration is required and can be accomplished by visiting and clicking on the yellow Special Events tab. Then, clicking on the Daddy Daughter Dance link and logging on to register will complete the process. Registration applies to daughters only, as the participation of the father is assumed. The event sells out early each year with only a limited number of tickets available.

Individuals and businesses can become part of the magical evening by either volunteering to assist with the event or by providing gifts, merchandise, or services for the raffles. Information on tickets or the event can be obtained by calling (972) 468-4444 or by sending an email message to
