Dirty Dan’s Murder Mystery Weekend

Apr 23, 2024

The annual Dirty Dan Murder Mystery Weekend honors Fairhaven’s spirited founder, Dirty Dan Harris (Daniel Jefferson Harris). It celebrates the history of Fairhaven with activities such as historical reenactments and a murder mystery that takes place all weekend long. This interactive ‘Who Done It’ event takes you through the charming streets of Fairhaven as you look for clues into this year’s mystery, “The Case of Fairhaven’s Fallen Flower.”

Best lunch spot in Fairhaven - Skylark's Cafe.


Mystery Description:  It’s the groovy 1970’s in Fairhaven and tensions are high. The Dirty Dan Community Garden is set to be demolished and the activists in town are not going to go down without a fight…

Can you find the murderer and discover their motive?

Dress up and dive in – collect clues and meet/greet with suspects throughout Historic Fairhaven Village.
