Our February events calendar features a wide variety of entertainment in the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan region. As always, we focus on events with a regular adult admission price of $15 or less, or virtual admission of $30.
For more expensive events, we look for popular events with available ticket discounts that can help bring the price down. Occasionally there are higher priced events we feel might be worth a splurge, especially music, film, and arts events that support local entertainers.
We’ll continue to update this calendar throughout the month as organizers announce new events and online content.

Is it a Leap Year?
The Earth circles the Sun every 365 days. Well, not quite. It takes approximately 365.25 days. So that extra 1/4 day is added every four years on February 29.
Okay, we lied again. It takes slightly less than 365.25 days for Earth to go around the Sun. In fact, it takes 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds. If you are doing the math, adding one leap day every four years overcompensates by 11 minutes and 15 seconds every year. Which means if we keep adding one day every four years, the calendar will creep ahead and pretty soon winter will be summer. Like Game of Thrones. Okay, not like GOT, we lied again! But you get the drift. Right?
So…to fix this other micro-discrepancy, the leap year is omitted every so often. (Who the heck keeps track of this?) Well, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. To correct this 11-plus-minute smidgen, we don’t add a leap day in years that are divisible by 100. But we do add a leap day in years that are divisible by 400. So, 2000 was a leap year, but 1700, 1800, and 1900 weren’t. And 2100 won’t be.
Okay, but why is it called “leap” year? Well, days of the week normally advance one day every year. For example, Christmas was on Monday in 2017, Tuesday in 2018, and Wednesday in 2019. Since 2020 was a leap year, Christmas was on Friday instead of Thursday. So, it “leaped” a day. Hence…it’s a Leap Year.
The last Leap Day was February 29, 2020. The next leap day years are: 2024, 2028, 2032.
