Valentine’s Day in Loudoun has come and gone but if you’re still in the mood to celebrate with your loved one, we have some fun Valentine happenings this weekend. If you’re completely over the holiday, we’ve got you covered too! Whatever you decide to do this weekend, we hope you #LoveLoudoun!

If you’re in the mood to relax with cider in hand and looking to get your creative juices flowing, check out the Paint & Hard Cider event with Wild Hare Hard Cider  & The Painted Tiger Art Studio on February 16th from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The night has already been planned for you- first, head to Wild Hare Cider where you’ll enjoy a tasting or flight of cider. When you’re done, bring your printed receipt to the Painted Tiger Art Studio, located conveniently across from Wild Hare Cider, where you will begin creating your masterpiece!  This event is the perfect way to enjoy two Loudoun attractions in one night!

Not over the Valentine’s Day holiday and looking for a fun way to celebrate with your significant other? My Punny Valentine at The StageCoach Theatre is the perfect way to spend your Friday night. With improv games like "Whose Line is it Anyway?” the StageCoach Bandits will be looking for audience suggestions and participation in this evening full of fun and laughter. This show is completely interactive and no two shows are ever the same. Be prepared to laugh and collaborate with members of the show and make sure to get your tickets online in advanced for a special discount.
