Valentine's Day in Saskatoon for Couples & Singles

posted by My Saskatoon    |   February 6, 2015 13:20

Whether single or taken, you’re probably well aware that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. There can be a lot of pressure surrounding this day, so for those of you who need some inspiration we've put together a little list of fun things to do in Saskatoon this V-Day. If you're single, remember that the love theme of the day doesn't have to be about romance. Valentine’s Day is a perfect excuse to go above and beyond to cherish the loving relationships you have with your friends and family. Any of the following ideas can be turned into a girls' night or fun family excursion!

Wanna go out?

It’s supposed to warm up just in time for V-Day! As much as we tire of winter here in Saskatoon, a snowy backdrop and twinkly lights certainly lends a festive vibe to an outdoorsy activity. Head to the Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink and cut some laps with your love, or round up a few friends and celebrate with a group skate. Follow it up with a visit to the stunning Frosted Gardens at the Delta Bessborough.

Would you prefer to stay indoors while you're out? Local restaurant Calories on Broadway is hosting a special Valentine's dinner menu with live entertainment on both February 13th and 14th. Reservations are highly recommended! Check out the Calories Facebook page for the details. We'd also highly recommend spending the evening of February 13th enjoying your favourite Broadway and jazz love songs at The Bassment. More information can be found here.

Looking for an activity that's a little more anti-valentine-esque? There are some great Canadian hockey match-ups happening on February 14th, as well as the annual Motorsports Spectacular at SaskTel Centre, conveniently held each year in Saskatoon on Valentine's Day!

Rather stay in?

Planning a night in? We love the idea of building an indoor tent for your sweetheart or BFFs. Use your imagination and supplies you have on hand, or get some inspiration here. Put together a nice charcuterie board from The Bulk Cheese Warehouse or grab takeout from Keo’s Kitchen. Don’t forget to pick up a bottle of wine from Ingredients!

If you'd rather do the cooking yourself, local Saskatoon foodie Renée Kohlman has a ton of amazing recipes on her blog, Sweetsugarbean. We think Renée's recipe for Chocolate & Blood Orange Pots de Crème would be a perfect V-Day dessert. If you're trying to keep things on the healthy side, her recipe for Chocolate Pistachio Energy Bites sounds amazing too!

We also love the idea of giving back on V-Day. Getting together to do something for others increases the bond you share with your friends and loved ones. Spread the love by giving back to our community on Valentine’s Day, whether through a random act of kindness or giving your time or financial support to a local cause that speaks to your heart. 

We hope that you are inspired to honour those you love in a special way next weekend! If you hear of any other fun Valentine's Day events happening in Saskatoon, please let us know in the comments so we can share them!
