It may be a short month but there’s no shortage of events in the Coachella Valley this February. Front and center, two of the desert’s most anticipated experiences kick off the beginning of the busiest time of the season. Modernism Week and the 74th Annual Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival are both international attractions, bringing in thousands of visitors from all over the world to celebrate two things the desert does best: mid-century architecture and delicious date-infused food. With so much to see, eat, and do, here’s a list of events going on this month to help you plan.
