February Events In DC | Things To Do In Washington, DC 2018

Winter is here to stay (for a little while longer, anyway), but that doesn’t mean you have to be stuck in your apartment all month long.  Take a break from your hibernation to check out some of the February events in DC.


Best February Events In DC


Cupid’s Undie Run

A Valentine’s Day tradition, the annual Cupid’s Undie Run is the “nation’s largest pantless party and mile(ish) run on your undies” with a mission to help end Neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that affects 1 in every 3000 people.  While the undie run is lighthearted and fun, Cupid’s Charity doesn’t mess around when it comes to fulfilling their mission.  To date, they’ve raised a whopping $14.5 million for the cause.  If you feel the urge to strip down to your skivvies for a brisk February jog followed by an epic dance party, then this is the event for you.  If you’d rather support the cause from home, you can donate here at any time.
