Events Roundup: What to Do This February in The Palm Beaches

January 21, 2020

Sports are in full swing, and there are art festivals aplenty. Enjoy the mild weather with outdoor events, or explore antiquing opportunities—all in The Palm Beaches this February.

Palm Beach Masters Series

Just across the street from the Polo Season action at the International Polo Club in Wellington is Deeridge Farms, which hosts three prestigious equestrian events that make up the Palm Beach Masters Series: the World Cup (January 28 – February 2), the Nations Cup (February 11 – 16), and the Palm Beach Open (March 10 – 15). The best part? These world-class events are free of charge; general-admission grandstand seating and parking is first-come, first-served.

Everglades Day Festival

The Florida Everglades are right in The Palm Beaches' backyard, and you can learn all about this amazing ecosystem at this free, family-friendly festival. This year's theme is "Habitats of the Everglades," and events include wildlife presentations, interactive games, guest speakers, conservation exhibits, canoeing, music and food trucks. Take a hike into a true natural wonder, and learn about the mystery and history of the Everglades’ diverse habitats on Saturday, Feb. 8. 

South Florida Garlic Fest

Smell that? It’s the South Florida Garlic Fest! Celebrating everything garlicky, this fun and funky festival serves up 100 garlic-infused dishes and top-notch live entertainment. Eat, drink and bring a friend to this festival in Lake Worth, February 8 – 9 (because nobody can eat garlic alone!). Wander down Gourmet Alley to try everything  from Argentinean garlic BBQ to garlic ice cream. Stick around to hear live music from The Wailers, G. Love & The Special Sauce, and emerging talent at the Battle of the Bands. It’s the best stinkin’ party in town, and you don’t want to miss it!

The Palm Beach Show

Whether you’re looking for all that glitters or a vintage piece for your home, you’re bound to find it at The Palm Beach Show (formerly the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show). This prestigious art fair descends on the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach from Feb. 13 to 18, bringing treasures from around the world. It’s the largest fair of its kind in the United States, with international exhibitors displaying fine jewelry, exquisite art and fascinating antiques you won't find anywhere else.

Delray Beach Open   

Game, set, match! It’s the Delray Beach Open, set for Feb. 14 – 23. As the world's only ATP Champions Tour and ATP 250 tournament, the Delray Beach Open offers a glimpse of the brightest tennis stars of yesterday and today. See current pros like Juan Martin del Potro and Kei Nishikori compete in fast-paced, single-elimination singles and doubles events, while legends like Tommy Haas and James Blake face off in Team Europe vs. Team World.  And for a super-special treat, teen sensation Coco Gauff will play an exhibition match on Saturday, Feb. 15. 

Spring Training – Miami Marlins & St. Louis Cardinals

The Palm Beaches are gearing up for Spring Training season, and not one, but two World Series Champions – the Miami Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals – will be back at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter. Both teams will be stepping up to bat February 22 – March 22, so grab a Dean Dog, take a seat and enjoy a spring day of Major League fun in the sun.

Spring Training – Washington Nationals & Houston Astros

The World Series Champion Washington Nationals and their 2019 rivals, the Houston Astros, will hit FITTEAM Ballpark of The Palm Beaches February 22 – March 22 for "Grapefruit League" Spring Training action. Enjoy the well-shaded seating, or set up in a suite or on the party decks. Grab a cold beer from the Craft Corner; with 32 tap handles, it’s bound to have something you like. Will the Nationals defend their title, or will the Astros snatch it back? You're just going to have to watch and see!

The Honda Classic
The Palm Beaches are known as Florida's Golf Capital®, and this PGA Tournament is a jewel in our crown. Watch the pros take a swing at the Honda Classic title Feb. 24 – March 1.

Be one of the thousands of fans lining the Champion course in one of golf’s most exhilarating atmospheres. Keep an eye out for the infamous “Bear Trap,” one of the most challenging three-hole stretches in golf. 

Arty Parties
Other not-to-miss events in February include ArtiGras, the Lake Worth Beach Street Painting Festival and Festival of the Arts Boca. ArtiGras kicks off over Presidents' Day weekend, Feb. 15 – 16.
