Valentine’s Day In Metro Vancouver

Here’s some of the best and most unique events happening in the city:

Sealed With a Fish

Enjoy a romantic meal alongside a dressed-up guest, as a penguin joins you for your meal. Afterwards, learn about the sex lives of aquatic animals because… why not?

Sofar Vancouver 

This unique event is happening at a secret location in Gastown and you won’t know where until the day before, via email. It features three performances by diverse artists.

Gravitational Attraction

What’s more romantic than a night gazing up at the stars? The Planetarium Star Theatre is hosting a soiree with drinks, appetizers and live music.

Love Matches

The event brings together improv performers in an audience-inspired competition “to prove that love conquers all.” There will also be an astrologer on hand and a poet to provide personalized sonnets.

Valentine’s Day Murder Mystery 

What better way to celebrate love than with murder? The story revolves around George and Martha, a married couple whose marriage is in turmoil. But when Martha’s lover is found dead, it’s up to you to discover who did it.

Stoplight Party 

The Portside Pub is hosting a party for those taken or single – just make sure to get a bracelet at the door to match your status. If you bring a picture of your ex to shred, you’ll get a free Fireball sample.

Galentine’s Afternoon Tea & Brunch Experience 

Bring your girl gang to the VanDusen Floral Hall for a day of afternoon tea. Plus, you’ll get a chance to win a $200 Sephora gift card!

If it were up to IKEA, you’d spend the day with them, but how are you planning on spending Valentine’s Day this year?
