When you organize something you are free to call it within reason something else. You will probably spend a lot of time answering people wondering if it is a FAD or not because it has been called that for 15 years :)

not 15 Years, but nearly 10 years [1] will fit :-)

The Fedora Project's mission is to lead the advancement of free and
open source software and content as a collaborative community.

Personally I don't care about what it could mean to others, FAD is our internal abbreviation for a specific event. It's not necessary people who are not involved in the community understand it, because we can/should promote the event with the full name. So a "Python 3 FAD" becomes a "Python 3 activity day" which is auto-explaining, no needs to invent new acronyms here.
