SF Bay Area Valentine's Day events in 2020 include the Great Pillow Fight in San Francisco, theater performances all around the area, and special cruises. You find fun things to do both on the holiday and the weekend before.
Read on for several ideas on how to spoil your sweetie this holiday.
Have you always wanted to be part of a flash mob? Now you have your chance to be part of the Great San Francisco Pillow Fight! In the past, approximately 1,000 people have shown up at Justin Herman Plaza on Market Street with pillows hidden in their bag only to bust them out when the clock strikes 6pm.
It's an amazing sight to see feathers flying everywhere, not to mention a good arm workout. This is by far one of the most unique SF Bay Area Valentine's Day events.
This is not a sanctioned event, so if you go, it's at your own risk!

Some of the city's most historic venues are offering Tony Award-winning shows that are sure to capture your heart. Catch Hamilton, the story of Alexander Hamilton--one of our famous founding fathers, at the Orpheum Theater.
Or head to the Golden Gate Theatre for SpongeBob The Musical. It's a chance to spend some time with SpongeBob and his friends in Bikini Bottom. When a volcano causes a tremor, SpongeBob has to save the day against two villains that are planning to trick the inhabitants.
You can also see one of many performances of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Curran Theater. It's the story of how Harry's son has to deal with a lot of the things his father did as he was growing up. It runs all weekend long.
Many of the shows are on Valentine's Day, but many are also during the weekend.
