Valentine Day Events in Columbus
Valentine's Day can be a lot of pressure on couples. Finding romantic things to do is made tougher if you want to do something a little different. MadLab is acting out the good and bad relationship stories provided by the audience during their show and the Franklin Park Conservatory has a class on creating handmade chocolates. What better way to spend time with your sweetie than learning a new skill? The one thing to remember when planning a spectacular Valentine's Day is to plan early! Last minute plans will find all the good events sold-out.

Based on the best and worst true-romantic stories you tell us, FFN will retell that story from a different point of view. New characters! New circumstances! Maybe an alien or two, who knows? You'll have to come to the show to find out. MadLab will present FFN's Date Night, true life tales of love re-told as only FFN can do it - through improv in a not so true way.

In addition to a romantic evening, Valentines by Candlelight will offer guests a window into how people of a different era marked this romantic occasion. Guests will be greeted by costumed interpreters, romantic melodies performed on the violin and hammered dulcimer, and a cup of "Sweetheart Punch."
