Even if you never could figure out how to pronounce it correctly (or spell it…), February is certainly something to celebrate. The month of love is filled to the brim with great events, festivals, and things to do— especially if you’re lucky enough to call DC home!
Let’s jump right in… here are our top 5 things to do this February in the DMV area!
1. Super Bowl XLIX
Whether you’re team Pats or root for the Legion of Boom, this year’s Super Bowl will definitely be one to witness. Going out to watch the game? Check out this list of DC Super Bowl viewing parties. Staying in? Here’s a roundup of recipes that are sure to knock the socks off your guests, and take the air outta your footballs… (we had to!).
2. Chinese New Year
All hail the year of the goat! There’s no better way to ring in Chinese New Year in DC than in Chinatown, of course. This year’s parade will take place February 22nd from 2-4:30pm on H street. Expect to see a lot of dragon dancing, kung fu fighting, and live music.
3. Cupid’s Undie Run
What’s more romantic than running around the streets of DC in the cold? Running around in the cold whilst clad only in your knickers, of course! Cupid’s Undie Run is coming to you live on February 15th (But seriously, it’s for a great cause!).
4. DC Rollergirls
Start brainstorming your pun-ny roller derby aliases now, ’cause the DC Rollergirls are putting on a big show February 21st at the DC Armory. This non-profit league includes home teams such as the Cherry Blossom Bombshells and Scare Force One… what’s not to love?
5. Get your bike spring-ready
You heard us! There’s no time like the present. Shake the dust (and snow) off your preferred mode of transport and bring it in to Bike and Roll’s Union station locale for a tune up that will have your two-wheeled wonder ready to hit the DC streets come spring.
