Top 5 things to do around Elkhart County in February

We’re not letting the cold and snow stop us, and you shouldn’t either! Here are some great ideas to keep the fun going throughout February in Elkhart County.


Elkhart County Garden Expo

8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds, tickets $10

Green thumbs can get a head start on the warmer months. Gardening and nature experts such as author Barbara Pleasant and plant nursery owner Mike McGroarty will spark inspiration. Then you can take that creative spark and browse the many gardening and outdoor vendors. More


Romantic dinner with your valentine

Hopefully, we don’t have to remind you that spending quality time with your significant other is a must-do in February. From fine dining to good old-fashioned home cooking, we’ve got some great ideas on where to go.

Academy of St. Martin in the Fields

7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at Goshen College Music Center, tickets start at $35

Feel cultured and enjoy an incredible night of music with one of the world’s most acclaimed chamber orchestras. This performance is part of the group’s commemoration of its 60th anniversary. Can’t make this, check out other dates and performers in Goshen College’s Performing Arts Series.

Mid-Century Modernism

Let’s go retro, shall we? The look of 1950s design – think funky lamps, chairs, home furnishings and artwork – is celebrated in this exhibit at the Midwest Museum of American Art. After your appetite for art is satisfied, check out the rest of downtown Elkhart’s Gateway Mile for dinner, a drink or even more artsy finds.

Concerts at Shipshewana Event Center

There’s music to please every taste with the upcoming concerts at the Shipshewana Event Center. With everything from country (Collin Raye, Feb. 8) to classic rock (America, Feb. 15) to Christian pop (Phil Wickham, Feb. 9), you can’t go wrong. Complete your day with some shopping at our Amish Country favorites.
