8 Things To Do In Vancouver This Weekend, February 14 To 16

It's officially Valentine's Day weekend!

The weekend is almost upon us. This isn’t any ordinary weekend, this is Valentine’s Day weekend! From loved-themed dinners to after-hours parties, there are tons of things going on this weekend in Vancouver that will have you busy and thriving. But don’t worry, there are endless things to do if you don’t want to go out for Valentine’s Day. We've rounded up a list of things to do in Vancouver this weekend that we think you might be a fan of.

Happy early Valentine’s Day, Vancouver. In just a few short days, we will be celebrating all things mushy. 

This year, Valentine’s Day is falling on a Friday, so lots of the events this weekend are love-focused. 

But that doesn’t mean you can’t do them while being single. You love yourself after all, don’t you? 

A lot of this weekend's events are adults-only which means no kids. 

From after-hours parties at museums to adults-only comedy shows, there are tons of things to see and do this weekend. 

And don’t worry. Not all of them are for lovers. 

If you aren’t going on a romantic getaway this weekend, treat these events as a bucket list. 

We are midway through the week so it’s best if you start planning ASAP. You would hate to miss out on all the fun.
