What to Do in Birmingham in February 2018

Looking for things to do in Birmingham this February? Searching for silly holidays to help get ideas for social media posts and blogs? This month’s lineup includes a little magic, a little loving kindness, and a little Nutella … because everything’s better with a little Nutella.

We all know February means Valentine’s Day, and that’s certainly on our calendar right in the middle of the month. But, while we’re glad that love is in the air, there’s plenty to do this month that doesn’t involve hearts and flowers. Here’s what we’re looking forward to at Infomedia. (Click here to download the February calendar.)

Black History Month

Here in Birmingham, we have a fantastic resource in the Civil Rights Institute for learning from the past and hopefully creating a better future.

Harry Potter Book Night at Homewood Public Library: Feb. 1

I don’t know about you, but anything that involves Hogwarts is worth putting on my calendar.

Wear Red Day: Friday, Feb. 2

Wear Red Day was started to raise awareness about heart disease and to bring attention to the fact that it’s a serious danger for women as well as for men. I’m a redhead, so of course I celebrate Wear Red Day everyday. 🙂

Super Bowl: Feb. 4

Break out the wings and dips, because it’s Super Bowl Sunday! I don’t care much about the game this year, but I’ll take an excuse to enjoy good food (and wine) and check out the new commercials any day.

Umbrella Day: Saturday, Feb. 10

I got an amazing new umbrella for Christmas (it opens outside-in, so you don’t get dripped on). On Umbrella Day, maybe I’ll break it out, rain-or-shine.

Mercedes Marathon: Feb. 11

If you’re a runner … more power to you, because that’s just not my thing. But it can be pretty empowering to watch all the marathoners accomplish such an amazing feat and to cheer them on from the sidelines.

Kid Coderz at Homewood Public Library: Feb. 16

Could you be raising a future Infomedian? If your kid’s expressed an interested in computers or coding, bring them by the library and sharpen their skills. Or “skillz,” as the case may be.

Random Acts of Kindness Day: Feb. 17

We’re big fans of Random Acts of Kindness Day here at Infomedia — check out our Random Acts of Kindness generator for lots of ideas for fun things to do for your friends, family and coworkers!

Southern Voices: Feb 23-24

I absolutely love a good book, and Southern Voices brings together several great authors. It’s a wonderful event for book lovers, storytellers or anyone who wants an entertaining weekend.

Special talents include the ability to sing basically any ‘80s song on-command and find sale items for 20% cheaper with just a little online research. After hours, you’ll find her hanging out with her husband, Chance, son, Wells, and dog, Beau, playing Bunko with her friends, or watching historical dramas on Netflix.
