All British Field Meet 2019 Invitation

Other Events in February 2019

The following are other events that might also be taking place in February 2019 or in future years:

Top things to do in February

  1. Take your sweetheart out on a date to one of Vancouver’s best restaurants (and it doesn’t necessarily have to be an expensive one) and/or somewhere inside to escape the rain and enjoy some of the Lower Mainland’s best entertainment.
  2. Check out the best things to do on Family Day in Vancouver during the Family Day long weekend.
  3. Ski or do other winter sport activities at Whistler-Blackcomb, Cypress, Grouse or Mount Seymour.
  4. Take the kids swimming at a rec centre (like West Vancouver’s great West Vancouver Aquatic Centre) or skating (like at Richmond’s Olympic Oval). Why? Because they are fun activities, affordable, and it’ll probably be dark and wet outside.
  5. Go for a walk or hike somewhere on the North Shore like at Ambleside, Lighthouse Park or Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver, or Lynn Canyon, Lynn Headwaters or around Rice Lake in North Vancouver. February isn’t a great month to be outside, but when the weather isn’t bad you won’t want to miss the chance to enjoy it. These parks, plus others in Vancouver’s list of best places in nature, are good ones in all kinds of weather (so long as it isn’t snowing and you dress appropriately).
  6. Free ice skating at Robson Square at the corner of Robson and Howe.
  7. As it rains a lot in February (which it likely will), check out Vancouver’s Best Things to do on a Rainy Day.
  8. Celebrate the Chinese New Year the Year of the Pig begins on February 5 and the Chinese New Year Parade takes place that weekend. Other Chinese New Year Festivities also take place in Chinatown at the International Village Mall at 88 West Pender Street, as well as at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.

Typical February Weather

Rainy Day Activities IconFebruary is a typical winter month in Vancouver – predictively cool, cloudy and wet.

Average high temperatures in February are around 8 degrees Celsius (or 46 F), and the lows are in the neighbourhood of about 1 (or 34 F).

February gets an average of about 125 mm of rain (or 5 inches). Some years though can be an exception, like in 2010 when it was warm, sunny and snowless around the time of the Olympics, and in 2015 when Vancouver was about 25 degrees warmer than many other parts of Canada.

Recommended Activities

Ice skating at the outdoor rink at Robson Square
Ice Staking at Robson Square

Like January, February can be one of the best months for skiing or other outdoor recreational activities locally up at Cypress, Seymour and Grouse, or further afield up at Whistler. There is also skating at most community rec centres (so good places to go on rainy days), and free skating in downtown Vancouver at Robson Square at 800 Robson Street until the end of the month.

If you’re not into outdoor winter sports, then February is typically a good month for indoor activities. The Family Day Long Weekend can be an especially good day to be around and about as a tourist with the clan, with many of Vancouver’s top attractions offering special rates and activities.

Dine Out Vancouver Festival occurs during the last two weeks of January, but also usually the first weekend or couple of days in February too.
