A Light Jacket Will Serve You Well During February In Seattle
Average temperature low and high: 37°- 51°
Seattle hovers around 50 degrees in February, and there's no shortage of thrilling events. The Valentine’s Weekend Latin Boat Party, Xtreme International Ice Racing, and the Dogs and Doughnuts Dash are all local favorites. Festivals are also big this time of year, as some are centered around anime music, wine, horror films, beer, and colorful gardens. When hunger strikes, a Seattle dog, fresh seafood, and teriyaki are sure to hit the spot. And be sure to save this page for more upcoming events.
Fans of blues music will certainly want to attend Mark Hummel's Blues Harmonica Blowout, featuring various blues artists including Sugar Ray Norcia and Magic Dick. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased in advance here.
Enjoy music with some serious twang at the Wintergrass Festival in Bellevue, Washington. The event connects people with acoustic music - the stripped-down genre that can evoke emotions with just a few chords and some softly sung lyrics. Performing artists include Bella White, Anna Tivel, and Hawktail, to name a few. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased online.

February is Seattle Museum Month, with hotel packages that include discounted tickets to over 30 museums in the area. Take the kids to Seattle Children's Museum to learn interactively about science in a bright and fun environment, or learn more about the area's Native American history at the Suquamish Tribal Museum. There's options for every interest you can think of, and it's a great opportunity to learn something new.
Pretend To Be A Rock Star
Seattle's indie music scene has a massive presence, but you can pretend you're a musician yourself by hitting one of the local karaoke bars. Get your country on at the Little Red Hen, rock out at the Japanese-style Rock Box, or play games in between songs at Alley Mic. They'll provide the mic, but you have to provide your own groupies.
