Events and Things to do in Davis County in February

by Discover Davis

Wow, we are already one month into 2023 and it’s hard to believe! February brings with it a few holidays we are looking forward to: Valentine’s Day, President’s Day (hello, 3-day weekend!) and Galentine’s Day (whether you observe it or not). We have so many ways to celebrate all the love this month, in addition to love and 3-day weekends, February is an important reminder to celebrate Black History and patronize local black-owned businesses for Black History Month! A quick fact to enjoy: Lagoon was the first amusement park in the nation to de-segregate! We are so proud to be home to Lagoon and that they saw the importance of trailblazing that inclusion earlier on.

Beautiful Dreamer Trio | February 3

“Beautiful Dreamer Trio plays wonderfully delightful music of yesteryear: Popular American Parlor Music. Inspired by the legacy of Stephen Foster, the “Father of American Music” (and taking their name from one of his last compositions), Beautiful Dreamer performs a wide variety of selections that family and friends would gather together in the best room of the home – the Parlor – to enjoy listening and playing: folk songs and dances from ancestral homelands, American folk songs, hymns and spirituals, music from the vaudeville and theater stage, the concert hall and the ballroom, patriotic tunes and marches, and seasonal favorites.”

Che Zuro | February 17

“With her guitar slung low, Ché Zuro plays rhythmically & melodically, luring you in with her smooth alto voice and songs that feel familiar! Compared to Aimee Mann, Sheryl Crow, and Melissa Etheridge, if you must compare, Ché’s rock band background & time frame are about the same, but her songs, a mix of Beatles and Zeppelin to a Native American beat make her really stand out! She paid her dues as a professional musician touring with her own bands, The Orchids, Trinity St., Population 5, et al, touring/recording with artists such as Charlie Sexton, Berlin, Josie Cotton Band, Dokken, Carmine Appice, The Photos, et al, as well as performing as a solo musician and with her female acoustic duo. Ché has placed a few songs in feature films and has won awards for her songwriting in both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Billboard Songwriting Contest. Among her 7 solo and duo recordings on Youghiogheny River Records, she recently released her record Rivers and Rain, which contains tunes penned about the Pennsylvania neighborhood where she grew up.”

Theatre & Art

CenterPoint Legacy Theatre presents She Loves Me

She Loves Me is a charming, romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and old-world elegance that warms the heart.  It is a story of mistaken identity, letter writing, and two feuding perfume clerks who have no idea that they have fallen in love with each other.  Based on the Mikos Lazlos play The Parfumerie, which has inspired many adaptations including The Shop Around the Corner and the beloved film You’ve Got Mail, this lovely musical is a show over which you will all head over heels.”

Hopebox Theatre presents The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

“An eclectic group of sixth-graders arrives at the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, each eager to win for very different reasons. Sweet and shy Olive brings only her best friend (the dictionary) with her to the bee; bold and hyperallergic speller William Barfee uses his “magic foot” to propel him to greatness; former champion Chip is struggling with his burgeoning puberty; easily distracted Leaf is unconvinced that he’s smart enough to be a challenger; overachiever Marcy is disappointed by her consistent success; and politically aware Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre only wants to impress her gay dads. In hilarious, touching, and catchy songs, each speller reveals his/her hopes, struggles, and passions as they make their way through the competition. With an engaging, tuneful score by William Finn and a sweet, funny book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee causes audiences to fall in love, both with the show itself and its “perspicacious,” “jocular,” and “effervescent” spellers.”

Where: Hopebox Theatre 

When: February 10 – March 4

Happy Valentine’s Day!

So it’s 2023 and Valentine’s Day isn’t purely for romantic love anymore, it’s for celebrating love of all kinds and those people in our lives whose love has changed us, so whether or not you want to celebrate with your special someone, or you want to celebrate your parents, children, friends, or siblings, then why not extend the love holiday for the whole month? And of course, if you aren’t familiar with Galentine’s Day, it’s a day for celebrating the women or ‘gals’ in your life and it has quickly become one of our favorite holidays because we don’t need any extra incentive for a fabulous brunch and/or spa day with our besties. We love love…we’re all about finding perfect date night spots, fun date nights with the kids, dates with ourselves, and expressing love for the outdoors, the arts, wildlife, coffee and food, and dare I say, even running. The love of amusement and fun is what we’re all about here in Davis and no matter who you choose to celebrate with, the celebrations can go on all month and we have a lot of options for you, for your partner, for your family, and for your furry friends no matter what love language you speak. Plus, nothing promotes strong relational bonds than trying something new together, maybe this month you try something you’ve always wanted to, like petting a sloth at Seaquest, dressing up and going rollerskating, or taking an art or cooking class.
