Romance in Roxbury
Romance in Roxbury is a week-long celebration of LOVE throughout the hamlet, with a variety of Love-themed events at restaurants, galleries, and stores that will make you want to cozy up to the ones you love, and fall in love with Roxbury. Stroll down our quaint Main St. and a walk through beautiful Kirkside Park for a romantic feel of yesteryear; stop in our unique shops for bubbly, cookies, and a blush wine tasting; write your own love poem, with help from a few poets; view a passion-filled art exhibit. They say the way to one’s heart is through their stomach, and Roxbury will be serving up distinctive Valentine’s Day menus and specials.
SHARE THE LOVE!
