Ahh, February. The month of l’amour, chocolate, and chilly weather. The days may be shorter and the temperature might be cooler, but that’s not going to stop us from exploring every museum in LA, tasting cookies at the LA cookie convention, and celebrating the Lunar New Year at Disneyland!
Here are some of the best things to do in February:
Chow Down at the LA Cookie Convention and Sweets Show
Calling all dessert lovers! Meet your favorite pastry chefs and of course sample delicious sweets at the LA Cookie Convention and Sweets Show!
Get Your Think On at Night of Ideas
Every year, people from around the world connect to discuss issues facing the world. This year’s theme is “Facing Our Time” and will explore ecological challenges and climate change through panels, screenings, lectures, and exhibits. Watch scientific speed dating, a “liminal soundbath” by Jónsi, and even a vegan fashion show.
Head to a Museum Free-For-All
The first weekend of February museums across LA are opening their doors and dropping entry ticket fees. You’ll still have to pay for parking and any special ticketed events, but don’t let that stop you from rounding up some friends and heading out on a weekend-long museum crawl.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day at a Secret Masquerade Ball
Couples, singles, and friends are welcome to attend the annual Secret Masquerade Ball held somewhere downtown. Ticket holders won’t know the exact location of the masquerade until two hours before the event begins – who doesn’t want a little mystery on Valentine’s Day?
