For Couples

I realize that couples pretty much have it made on this day but why not think outside the box of chocolates and try out one of these unique date night ideas:

Valentine’s Art Date Night | Beaverbrook Art Gallery
For the artsy couple, who likes to have fun! Participants will be guided through the process of creating a floral illustration by local artist Katrina Slade in the romantic setting of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery. Not only do you get to keep your piece of art, you will be given a fresh flower to bring home. A glass of wine and light refreshments will be provided.

Valentine’s Day Dinner | Beaverbrook Art Gallery
An event for serious romantics! This evening is all about dining around the Gallery’s most iconic artworks: Have some beets with Boudin, Truffle Chicken with Turner and treats with Tissot. The 3-course meal includes a glass of Prosecco and musical entertainment throughout the evening.

With friends

“If there’s a law against friendship then lock me up!” – Leslie Knope / Park’s & Recreation (inventor of the infamous Galentine’s Day). Even if you aren’t a Parks & Rec fan, who doesn’t love the idea of a night well spent with one of your faves?

A Galentine’s Day Variety Show | Gallery on Queen
The goal of this event is to celebrate, encourage and connect women in Fredericton. The evening will be packed with entertainment including standup comedy, a flower arranging demo, raffle draws, a photo booth and other special surprises! Come eat, drink, laugh and bond with other amazing women! Leslie Knope would be so proud.

The Lone Wolf

Are your friends busy? Are you single? Is your partner in crime doing time…at work? No worries- there is something out there for you!

Valentine's Day Watercolour Workshop | The Royal Barbershop Inc.
This event is specifically for singles! A small group of people will get together in a candlelit setting and learn the basic techniques of water color painting with Janel Chantal. You will get to take home your 8x10, framed piece of art and hopefully leave with a renewed sense of creativity!
