SF Bay Area Valentine's Day Events 2018

Great Pillow Fight, Theater Shows & More Ideas this Holiday

SF Bay Area Valentine's Day events in 2018 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.

SF Bay Area Valentines Day Events

Great San Francisco Pillow Fight

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!

SF Bay Area Theater

Do something different for date night this Valentine's Day and spend the evening enjoying the best of San Francisco theater!

Some of the city's most historic venues are offering Tony Award-winning shows that are sure to capture your heart. Catch The Book of Mormon, the hilarious musical by the creators of South Park, at the Orpheum Theater.

Or head to the SF Playhouse for Born Yesterday, a bold play that takes a look inside corruption within the government from an outsider turned insider's perspective.

Many of the shows are on Valentine's Day, but many are also the weekend prior.

SF Bay Cruises

A very romantic and memorable way to treat your honey on Valentine's Day is by taking a three-hour dinner cruise on the SF Bay. You'll enjoy a delicious meal, premium wine and beer, music, dancing, and breathtaking views of San Francisco.

You can board the yacht from either the Embarcadero in the city, or the Berkeley Marina in the East Bay. And if you already have plans for Valentine's Day, you can still take a romantic brunch or dinner cruise on Valentine's Weekend (February 10 & 11).
