“It was a dark and stormy night when the first train roared into Fairhaven Station in 1890. As torrential rain turned muddy streets to rivers of chocolate milk, the townspeople drank and danced at a lavish gala welcoming the railroad. No one imagined that at midnight, when the train left the station, it would roll over the town’s most prominent man leaving only his bowler hat floating in a puddle.”

Join your fellow gumshoes as you solve the crime! The Fairhaven Association brings back the popular Dirty Dan Murder Mystery Weekend for its third year. Award winning author Jes Stone has created a fun and clever story line featuring characters such as; London Jack, Miss Pearl and Myrtle Buttinski. Who killed Mr. Nelson Larrybees? Meet the suspects on our Facebook page, @enjoyfairhaven.

The event kicks off at the train station — Saturday April 29th at 10:30am. Browse the historic streets of Fairhaven and interview suspects — turn in the correct guess and you could win a prize!  The “who dunnit” will be announced Sunday April 30th at 1:30pm (Fairhaven Village Green). Tickets are on sale now through www.enjoyfairhaven.com, with Early Bird pricing available until this Saturday, April 15th! Come solo or as a group (dress up and participate in the costume contest Sunday afternoon).

Thank you to our event sponsor Fairhaven’s Village Books & Paper Dreams and the 25 local business that serve as clue locations.

Dirty Dan Day will immediately follow the reveal on Sunday with entertainment by The Song Wranglers and games such as a fish toss and pie eating contest. Bellingham’s Good Time Girls will host a 1800’s costume contest on the Fairhaven Village Green stage. This is a FREE event that celebrates Dirty Dan Harris the founder of Fairhaven.
