Date Night Out
Go into Valentine’s Day on a high note and tune into your partner with a music-filled evening in Loudoun! From George Gershwin to Alicia Keys and Cole Porter to Sarah Bareilles, American songwriters have been supplying us with some of the most memorable and iconic love songs in history. Share a special evening with your soulmate at StageCoach Theatre and join a star-spangled group of talented, local artists for an unforgettable evening of beautiful and fun love songs written specifically by American songwriters and composers from the 1930s to today. Hearts will beat a little faster as music swings throughout the theater! Bring your sweetheart and find L.O.V.E. in the U.S.A.
Desperate for some one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day gift ideas? Whether you’re showing how much you appreciate and care for a spouse, a significant other, a grandparent, or even a dear friend, nothing says “I Love You” quite like classic gifts. Head to Brambleton Town Center for a Valentine's Pop-Up Market featuring local artisans and craft vendors. Shower the one you love with candles and flowers ‘til they go all starry-eyed!
Alternatively, give the romantic gift of an experience with the Loudoun Wineries Association’s Winter Barrel Tasting! On Saturday, February 22nd, Loudoun County winemakers are opening their cellars and tasting wine directly from the barrel. Come as a couple, come alone, or a group — just prepare to be barreled over by love!
Hold Each Other Close
Ready for a bit of a bad romance? Every FEARbruary, near Valentine’s Day, Carlheim Manor opens its doors for an annual anti-Valentine event. This unique haunted house is not your average date night for couples who are celebrating Valentine’s Day. “My Bloody Valentine” is a PG-13 self-guided tour through love-wrecked horrors inside the haunted Carlheim Manor. Whether you want to hold your loved one closer while going through 32 rooms of terror or whether you are single and want to go out with a bunch of friends because love stinks, this fun and nontraditional twisted love attraction could be just what your heart was longing for!
