Richmond Events This Week: February 11 – February 17, 2019

Winter Richmond EventsJust last weekend, Puxatawney Phil, the famous weather-predicting groundhog, did not see his shadow. According to Groundhog Day legend, that means we’re in for an end to winter and an early spring. Not many of us who have endured the last few weeks of winter are inclined to believe it – even after a few days of warmer weather last week. But considering that according to USA Today, this is only the 19th time out of 123 in recorded history that Puxatawney Phil hasn’t seen his shadow…well, we can always hope.

In the meantime, winter weather won’t stop warm hearts this week as we have Valentine’s Day coming up on Thursday! If you haven’t planned your special day with that special someone yet, be sure to check out Richmond Mom’s Valentine’s Day tips – we’ve got everything from Valentine’s Day Dining Guides to date ideas to a PSA for dads about what moms REALLY want this Valentine’s Day.

Even if Valentine’s Day isn’t at the top of your priorities list, you won’t want to miss all of the great activities coming up in the Greater Richmond area. We’ve got a calendar packed with events for the whole family, so take a look at some of the highlights below, then visit our full events calendar for more family-friendly events – this week and beyond!
