Curious about events happening in Vancouver & across the Lower Mainland during the month of February? Enjoy our month-at-a-glance listing of ongoing events happening across Metro Vancouver in the 2020 edition of February.
I’ve never understood people’s lack of enthusiasm for February (and it isn’t just because I’m a February-baby). There is so much going on! Mark your calendars for Groundhog Day (Feb 2), Valentine’s Day (Feb 14), and Family Day (Feb 17). There are also a few other notable and/or funny days in February: Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast (1st Saturday in February aka Feb 1 this year), Superbowl Sunday (Feb 2), and Umbrella Day (Feb 10th). And don’t forget 2020 is a Leap Year, so February has a whole extra day. See, lots of reasons to jump out of bed smiling in February!
Not only are there reasons to get excited about specific days but there are a multitude of events you should add to your February-bucket-list:
Harlem Globetrotters (Feb 1): With incredible ball handling wizardry, amazing rim-rattling dunks and trick shots, side-splitting comedy and unequaled on-court fan interaction, you don’t want to miss the two shows from the Harlem Globetrotters at the Pacific Coliseum.
