With an entire day devoted to love, February is the perfect time to get out exploring Greater Green Bay with a special someone in your life! Sure, a great date is based on the two people on it, but it doesn't hurt to have awesome things to do. We have plenty of events to put on your calendar that make date-worthy night's out! Don't forget a lovely meal before or after.
Events that Make Great Dates
The NEW Leaf Winter Farmers Market is an indoor market that provides all the same fresh produce, handcrafted art and local goods. Take a stroll through the market hand-in-hand shopping for fresh ingredients to cook a nice meal together. Don't forget to purchase a bouquet of flowers for a nice dining table centerpiece. This market is held at the KI Convention Center Saturday mornings in February.
For the active couple, the Seroogy's Valentine 5k or 15k Run-Walk takes place February 11 at Seroogy's Chocolates in De Pere. Enjoy the 'winter runnerland' through the streets of De Pere. Each finisher receives a Seroogy's Chocolate Bar and hot cocoa. You should also browse the large chocolate shop for other Valentine's Day sweet goodies to take home!
Your singing may not be a great Valentine's Day gift, but that's why Ben Folds is playing at the Meyer Theatre on February 14. He can serenade you and your date for an enjoyable evening out Downtown Green Bay. For an added touch of romance, make reservations at Black & Tan Grille right across the street.
Is there anything more romantic than sharing a bottle of wine together? Parallel 44's annual Frozen Tundra Wine Fest celebrates growing wine in Northeast Wisconsin with the release of their Ice Wine made with grapes that thrive in harsh winter conditions. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
