With February being the month of Valentines Day, a lot of people tend to associate it with love, couples, and romance. They somehow also come to the conclusion that, because of this, single people can't have any fun in February. We're here to prove to you that that's far from the truth.

While doing things with your significant other can be fun, there's no reason you can't go on all the same dates with your friends, or even solo if you're really brave! Instead of focusing on love and romance, make February the month of trying new things, adventure, and excitement! Anyone who's been in Edmonton long enough will tell you that there's no shortage of things to do.

No matter what your interests are, we've got a great list of suggestions for you. Catch up with old friends over a delicious dinner and drinks, test the waters of romance by going on a date with someone new, treat yourself to a classy af night out on the town, or tuck away your pocket change for a rainy day and check out all the free activities Edmonton has to offer this month.

Regardless if you're with your friends, family, significant other, or yourself this February, we want to make sure you have a great time. Check out our recommended activities and events, and get picking which ones you'll check out first!
