Best Things To Do in Westchester in February With Kids: Outdoor Fun, Hot Chocolate Fest, Maple Sugaring

February may be the shortest month, but it brings with it a multitude of special occasions worth celebrating. With Valentine’s Day, Presidents Day, Black History Month, Mardi Gras, and Lunar New Year crammed into just 28 days, there’s practically a reason to celebrate every day.

Below we’ve rounded up our favorite February events for families in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. We're supplementing these picks with seasonal anytime outings and highlights from our virtual event listings. Mix and match throughout the month, and be sure to bookmark this page for easy reference.

Even better news: This is just the tip of the iceberg! We have many more resources are available, including our Winter Fun Guide, which is filled with winter day tripsindoor water parks to visit nearby, and our winter fun list. Beyond that, our Event Calendar is constantly updated with new events as we learn of them.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do.
