Mystery Weekend 2021
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, Langley’s 37th annual Mystery Weekend will be not be held in February, 2021.
We hope to resume this fun event in 2022.
Amateur sleuths from far and wide come to Langley in late February to help figure out whodunit on Mystery Weekend.
A troupe of seasoned actors takes over the town for two days to play their parts in the annual murder mystery. Not even the characters know who the murderer is. The murderer’s identity is always revealed Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Whidbey Children’s Theater auditorium (formerly Langley Middle School).
Sleuths come to Langley and line up outside the Visitor and Information Center (Mystery Weekend Headquarters), to buy a clue map for $12 ($10 for seniors, youth and military) and get a copy of The Langley Gazette with details of the murder.
Then these amateur detectives fan out all over town, visit the crime scene, pick up clues from participating merchants and interact with the suspects, who will be in costume and whose photographs will be displayed at The Big Gig on the corner of Second and Anthes.
