Baraboo Mystery Weekend – A Recipe for Murder
April 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - April 2, 2023 @ 4:00 pm$10.00
The 3nd annual Baraboo Mystery Weekend will turn downtown Baraboo into the scene of a mystery for amateur detectives to solve. This fun and unique mix of mystery theater, live-action Clue game and scavenger hunt.
Sleuths attempting to uncover the truth about the untimely death will receive a newspaper with a front-page story about the murder, as well as articles about town events that introduce our cast of suspects and witnesses. A map will lead sleuths to over 20 clue stops located within the shops and restaurants, all within walking distance of the crime scene, where they can pick up valuable information.
The witnesses and suspects will be out and about, just waiting to share their stories and answer questions. There will also be a reading of the preliminary Coroner’s report and a crime scene to investigate in the quest to uncover the truth.
The grand finale of the weekend will come on Sunday April 2 at 3 pm at the Historic Al Ringling Theater when the “local Police Chief” will unravel the mystery and arrest the culprit! Prizes for participants will be awarded by drawing, including the grand prize selected from those sleuths that correctly identified the murderer.
