Immerse yourself in the glamour of Saratoga Springs during the “Roaring Twenties” with the Newport Murder Mystery group. The featured era was defined by gambling, danger, deception and tremendous thoroughbred racing. The legendary Man o’ War was the greatest sports figure of the time. He even had his own security guards to protect him from murder plots organized by gambling interests. Here you’ll meet a cast of colorful period characters … just be careful who you trust! Help us solve the crime set among the Museum’s historic collection and artwork and enjoy an open bar all night, a cocktail hour and dinner and dessert catered by the Brook Tavern. There might even be some clues in the auction held during dinner to help you solve the mystery! One lucky winner will receive a day at the Saratoga races in 2018 in the Museum’s clubhouse box.

All proceeds from this fundraiser support the Museum’s educational mission. All tickets will be sold in advance and are not available at the door.

Schedule of events:

6 p.m. — Cocktail hour in the Sculpture Gallery

7 p.m. — Dinner served by the Brook Tavern with a themed auction

8 p.m. — Dessert and Solve the Crime!

9 p.m. — Conclusion
