Snuggle Up This February in Chicago

Average temperature low and high: 26° - 36°
With wind speeds ranging from 5-21 miles per hour, making it feel up to 10 degrees cooler than it is outside, Chicago is the perfect place to get close and cuddly with your significant other this Valentine's Day. There are also lots of cultural events going on throughout the month that include Black History Month celebrations and the annual Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown. Some events may change or be postponed or due to COVID-19; we will update this page with any new info from organizers in the coming weeks.
