20 Can’t Miss Events in February 2020

NEPA is Cranking Out Concerts, Comedy, Classic Broadway and More All Month Long

Electric City Aquarium, Scranton


Fall in love with a full calendar of awesome winter fun.

February in NEPA is all about filling your free time with some warm, cozy indoor fun. It’s that time of year where hot pizza, cold beer and bowling become weekend staples. Some fight the frigid temps with trips to the aquarium or waterpark. Still, others seek a little fireside comfort on a restful resort getaway.

Sure, we’re all about embracing winter. By this time, however, we’re also all about moving this party indoors. Yeah, we’ll still get out there on the slopes and snowy trails. I mean, it is NEPA after all — we’ve got winter flowing through our veins. But nothing beats back the chill of a cold day quite like a warm meal in a cozy restaurant or a couple pints in a crowded pub.

Kick off those special couch socks. Put that current Netflix binge on hold and get your friends on the horn. It’s trivia night, or taco night, or dress like Fonzie night (probably, somewhere). There are so many things to do and places to see all over NEPA. And not all of them require trace amounts of frostbite.

Find something to do every day of the week with our awesome events page. And try not to skip any of the February fun on this convenient can’t miss list.
