Say No to Valentine’s Day at Ol’ Beautiful Brewing Co.

For those who aren't quite feeling the Valentine's spirit or are perhaps celebrating singledom, Ol’ Beautiful Brewing Co. has the perfect solution. On February 10, join the Ten Things I Hate About You event, an anti-Valentine’s Day rager filled with break-up anthems and dance hits. It's a celebration of freedom, independence, and the joys of being single.

Tea Time for Friendship
Grab your besties and celebrate Valentine’s with a delightful high tea service. Heritage Park is hosting a Palentine’s tea service on February 10 and 11, providing a cozy setting for you and your best friend to enjoy an afternoon of finger sandwiches, sweets, and teas. Alternatively, the Lougheed House offers a Galentine’s tea service on February 11, perfect for a day out with your closest friends!

Wine, Dine, and Explore Animal Affection at the Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo
The Wilder Institute/Calgary Zoo invites you to its In the Heat of the Night event on February 10 (sold out), 13, and 14 (sold out). This unique experience combines a romantic four-course meal with an educational twist, featuring an adults-only presentation about the ways animals express their love. 

Experience the Warmth of Candlelit Jazz
For an enchanting Valentine's Day, consider Fever's candlelit concert on February 14 at The Commons at ATCO Park. The Candlelight: Romantic Jazz performance by the Malcolm Aiken Jazz Quartet will serenade you with romantic classics by Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé, all in a beautifully lit setting that promises a memorable night of music and romance.

Family Fun at YYC Hot Chocolate Fest
The YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, while not specifically for Valentine's Day, is a fantastic way to spend time with family. Explore various venues across the city, tasting uniquely crafted hot chocolates. It's a sweet and cozy activity perfect for making memories with your loved ones.

This Valentine's Day, Calgary offers a diverse array of events that go beyond the traditional dinner date. From celebrating friendship and singlehood to enjoying romantic evenings and family-friendly activities, there's something for everyone in the city to make this Valentine's Day special and memorable.
