How can any social calendar be complete without a Valentine’s Day celebration in February, regardless of whether it’s a party for one, two, or the entire family? So, to help take the guesswork out of “what to do for Valentine’s Day this year?” we’ve put together a list of the top events around town that can help you get started on planning the perfect day:

  • Gilberto Santa Rosa – A day before the big day (Feb. 13), you can catch the “Gentleman of Salsa” performing live at The Fillmore Miami Beach.
  • DIY Valentine Card and Mural Class – Great for those who like to get started early, this DIY art class will take place on February 6. Miami’s own muralist and stencil artist Registered Artist will be leading the class at the WYN 317 Art Gallery. Learn how to create your own stenciled Valentine’s Day card to take home as you munch on love-themed sweets and beverages.
  • To Miami, With LoveThis is a series of pop-up performances by the Miami City of Ballet that will be taking place around town, from January 30 to February 21. On February 13th, you can catch MCB dancer Eric Trope’s headline choreography with a ticket to the Wynwood Walls. And, on February the 14th, you can catch Alaina Andersen’s headlining choreography by RSVP-ing to the Design District’s Palm Court pop-up event.
  • Valentine Partner Yoga Class – Start Valentine’s Day with positivity. Bring along your best friend, lover, or kids to this partner yoga class at the South Pointe Park in Miami Beach from 9 to 11 am. A great way to connect as you tone, stretch, and get limber.
  • Deering Estate Cruise and Concert – This sprawling estate will be the perfect backdrop to a romantic Valentine’s Day Bay cruise and outdoor concert later in the evening. With both events taking place at the Deering Estate, on the 14th, you can easily plan out the day. While the Bay cruise has a morning and afternoon option for a ride on their 45-foot Corinthian catamaran, the concert under the moonlight will feature performances by Leesa Richards and Melinda Rose plus a decadent picnic basket or dinner and dessert of choice.
  • Concerts and Sweet Delights at the Fairchild Gardens – With a choice of three great concerts, you can choose to enjoy the Valentine’s Day Concert with BITA for adults only, its family-friendly version, or a concert with Vic Kingsley for your dog date. 

You could also choose to indulge your sweet tooth while admiring the beauty of nature with their Sweetest Stroll event taking place on the 13th and 14th.

  • Vizcaya Late: Valentine’s  - A great choice for those looking for a low-key Valentine’s date, head to the Vizcaya for a tour of the Main House at twilight, live music, and last-minute gift options with your ticket purchase.
