Polaris Fashion Place® Shares the Love this Valentine’s Day with

Family-Friendly Celebrations


Families are invited to share the love during Bestie Bash, Art & Hearts, Post Your Love and Blood Drives during this Valentine’s Day Season


Columbus, OH (Feb. 3, 2021) – Polaris Fashion Place will host several unique, family-friendly events this February to help Columbus spread the love: Bestie Bash offers take-home Valentines boxes for kids, Arts & Hearts includes drinks and crafts for adults and the Post Your Love Wall returns, offering guests a chance to publicly express their feeling of love.  


“These events offer ways to celebrate friendship, love and positivity through creative expression and acts of kindness, said Tamra Bower, Polaris Fashion Place General Manager. “As a central place for the community to gather, we invite everyone to take advantage of these experiences, as well as our shopping, dining and other entertainment options.”


The Polaris Fashion Place KidX Club program will host a Hearts & Crafts Bestie Bash celebration on Saturday, Feb. 6 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Lower Level at Center Court. As a unique way to celebrate friendship, Bestie Bash will give children and their families the opportunity to pick up a craft kit complete with a blank shoe box and craft materials to create their very own Valentine’s Day card box, all from the comfort of home. Guests will also receive special offers to stores like the new Shelby’s Sugar Shop.


On Tuesday, Feb. 9 and Wednesday, Feb. 10 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Polaris Fashion Place will host Arts & Hearts, where guests can treat themselves, a friend, or significant other through DIY crafts and drinks. While supplies last, guests age 21 and over can pick up their mason jar craft kit next to Brio.


Polaris Fashion Place will continue to spread positivity, both physically and virtually, this year. Just like in years past, Polaris Fashion Place will host the interactive art display #PostYourLove, where guests are encouraged to handwrite notes of love, affirmation, encouragement or even just a simple ‘I love you’ on sticky Post-It notes near the Food Hall on the upper level. Guests are also encouraged to share their notes virtually by using #PostYourLove.


Polaris Fashion Place encourages guests to show their love and support for American Red Cross by donating blood to support the local community. Polaris is hosting weekly Blood Drives on property. For more information, please visit
