February 25-26 – A Whole Town Whodunnit

Langley Mystery Weekend features a whole town as the scene for a mystery for amateurs to solve! And the town has been doing this for several decades! A new creative mystery unfolds each year and visitors search for clues inside stores, and question suspects on the streets of Langley. Around that sleuthing, visitors also sneak in a little shopping and a little sightseeing in “The Village by the Sea.”

A puppeteer is questioned by a woman during Langley’s Mystery Weekend.

The mystery unfolds on Saturday morning, with a crime scene and a murder victim. Who did what? Who saw what? It’s all tongue-in-cheek fun. The only real crimes are some awful puns and some silly costumes. By the afternoon, the coroner’s report details the crime and offers new clues. By Sunday afternoon, the case is solved, the “villain” identified and visitors have spent a happy weekend in the scenic town of Langley.

The mystery is often an opportunity for satire and no topic is safe.

Sleuths of all ages are invited to participate in the longest running Mystery Weekend in the United States. If you’re smart enough to figure out who committed this dastardly deed, you might even win yourself some prizes. Come  play along Saturday, February 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m and Sunday, February 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Then make your way to Langley Middle School Auditorium for the big reveal at 5 p.m.
