Champaign-Urbana Valentine’s Day Events for Families
Celebrate the ones you love with Valentine’s Day fun for kids and families.
Thanks to Lodgic Everyday Community for sponsoring our Valentine’s Day events post. It’s time to celebrate LOVE with Lodgic! Lodgic’s Everyday Kitchen is offering a special prix fixe menu that includes a bottle of wine and creative, delicious food. Try chicken made with apples and brie, appetizers like lamb lollipops, or decadent desserts including crème brulee, panna cotta, or a flourless chocolate tart. Whatever your palette, the menu is sure to delight. You need not be a Lodgic member. Reservations recommended. For more information, click here.
The holiday of love is a fun time for families, too! Here’s our annual guide to fun, family-friendly Valentine’s Day events in and around Champaign-Urbana. (We have a separate list for Daddy-Daughter, Mother-Son and Family Date Night events – many require advance registration, so check it out as soon as possible.)
