February is a short month, but it’s packed full of fun things to do in and around New York City. Whether you’re headed to Lincoln Center to catch the latest looks or dig watching dogs strutting their stuff, there’s something for everyone seeking entertainment, fashion, and events this month.
A New York staple, New York Fashion Week attracts the world’s greatest designers, celebrities, and performers. If you drop by a show, you might see the next big designer, or you might spot a celebrity in the front row of a show. Christian Siriano, Vivienne Hu, Zang Toi, and Bibhu Mohapatra all have shows this time around. And if you can’t make it in person, NYFW is streaming some of the runway shows on their website.
Man’s best friend literally jumps through hoops in hopes of being named “Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club’s annual dog show at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for the prestigious pooch competition can be purchased a la carte so you can see your favorite pups, or get a one day “Go Anywhere” ticket and catch as much as you can. Buy online here.
If hops and barley are more your speed, drop into New York City Beer week. Pop into the opening bash on February 25 to have your taste of the finest craft beers. Or drop in on the 1st annual NYC Fermentation Festival if you want to learn how your very own homebrew beer or kombucha.
