A Weekend of Mystery and Intrigue

If you are up for a suspense-filled weekend you are invited to come for Cape May’s Sherlock Holmes Weekend. Sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC), this event invites you to join Sherlock Holmes and his partner, Dr. Watson for a weekend of mystery and intrigue. It all starts with a coffee and dessert reception at the Rose Room at the Inn of Cape May. Here the crime will unfold before your eyes. Seatings take place at 8pm and a cash bar is available.

On Saturday you get to put your sleuthing skills to the test by searching for clues among Cape May’s Victorian treasures. Each participant is given an answer sheet to complete on the self-guided tour.  Tickets for the Search for Clue Tour may be purchased at the Washington Street Mall Information Booth. The game continues in the afternoon at the Rose Room where guests will enjoy a delicious lunch. Then, the winners will be announced and prizes awarded once the mystery is solved. Full weekend packages are available at $115 per person and include the welcome reception, search for clues tour, performances and lunch.
