As Downtown Annapolis is expanding indoor capacity and evening hours at many of its restaurants and other businesses, plans are underway to welcome those wishing to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Feb 14th. This year Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend which gives people more options to celebrate throughout the weekend.
With COVID still on everyone’s mind, there will be dine-in, carryout, delivery, online shopping, virtual entertainment, and safe in-person options being offered this year in downtown Annapolis for Valentine’s Day. “This makes it a perfect weekend to distract your loved ones from almost a years’ worth of lockdowns and restrictions to plan a special weekend together.” Says Erik Evans the Executive Director of both the Annapolis Arts District and the Downtown Annapolis Partnership.
Several local arts organizations have put together virtual valentine themed events for you to enjoy at home including the Annapolis Shakespeare Company, the Annapolis Opera, and the Anne Arundel County Public Library. Combine this with a carryout meal, a bottle of wine, and a fire in the fireplace or TV and you have a romantic weekend at home.
For those wanting to escape the house, several downtown hotels have specials this month on overnight stays and you can find everything you need to make Valentine’s Day Weekend special within walking distance downtown including flowers, chocolate, wine, cards, jewelry, gifts, and dinner.
While it is always recommended that you make advanced plans for Valentine’s Day, this is especially true this year. Due to COVID, inventory can be lighter than normal and restaurants are still operating at only 50% capacity plus maintaining social distancing.
This year the Downtown Annapolis Partnership and the Annapolis Arts District teamed up to survey downtown area businesses to find all the current advertised Valentine’s Day specials for the downtown Annapolis area. The specials and events are listed below. The two organizations expect even more Valentine’s Day Weekend options will be added over the coming days. Updates to Valentine’s Day Weekend activities will be posted at www.downtownannapolispartnership.org/valentine-s-day-in-annapolis
