San Francisco Valentine's Day Overview
It’s not entirely clear how a feast intended to honor a Christian saint named Valentine became a holiday dedicated to romantic dinners, chocolate covered strawberries, and poignant Hallmark cards. But every year on February 14th, couples from across the Bay Area come together to celebrate their relationships.
On Valentine’s Day in San Francisco couples of all shapes and sizes hit the town in the name of romance. Lovebirds play footsie under the table while dining at a restaurant in the Castro or canoodle as they enjoy live music at the Fillmore. There’s also a host of over-the-top 2018 Valentine’s Day parties for those couples who’d rather have their romantic evening with a healthy serving of fun.
And for San Francisco’s young, eligible, and fabulous population, there’s a full line up of anti-Valentine’s Day parties to help you forget the stench of love in the air. Bachelors and bachelorettes from all over the city come together to celebrate having been missed by Cupid’s arrow at some of the best parties the city offers all year.
