Looking for ways to get out of the house in February? From Groundhog Day to Chinese New Year- and of course Valentine’s Day- Chicago has a little something for everyone this month. Be sure to get out and enjoy one or all of these great events.

While not exactly in Chicago, you don’t want to miss Groundhog Days in Woodstock, IL. Did you know parts of the movie “Groundhog Day” was filmed here? If you’ve ever taken part in this event, that should come as no surprise. Starting Tuesday January 29th with a kickoff party and running through Sunday February 3rd, there are daily events including storytime, trivia, and numerous showings of the movie. There is truly something for everyone!

Ring in the Chinese New Year on February 2nd with Chinese storytelling and lantern making, plus a visit of the new Chinese bronze exhibition. At sundown, lion dancers lead a procession of lanterns from the Art Institute of Chicago to Maggie Daley Park.

Do you have an upcoming wedding in 2019? Get inspired at Chicago Indie Wed, also on February 2nd. The event will feature 70 independent businesses offering handmade items and innovative services for unique weddings at Ravenswood Event Center.
