Langley Mystery Weekend

Langley Mystery Weekend takes over the whole town as the scene for a mystery for amateurs to solve. 2020 is the 36th year for this unique event. A new creative mystery unfolds each year and visitors pick up clues in stores, read all about the murder in The Langley Gazette, visit the crime scene, attend the coroner's report, and question suspects on the streets of Langley.

2020's theme is “Murder at Mardi Gras” and features the first-ever Mystery Weekend parade. Behind all the merriment, however, some business rivalries have sprung up and people are taking the law into their own hands. When an explosion rocks the town, killing a well-loved character, it’s a tense time in the "Village by the Sea.”

Visitors can interrogate more than 30 costumed characters who will be around town. In addition to sleuthing, visitors can also sneak in shopping, eating and sightseeing.

Participants are encouraged to wear Mardi Gras costumes for this year's Mystery Weekend fun.

The mystery unfolds on Saturday morning, with a crime scene and a murder victim. Who did what? Who saw what? It’s all tongue-in-cheek fun. The only real crimes are some awful puns and some silly costumes. At 1 p.m. the coroner’s report details the crime and offers new clues.

By Sunday afternoon, the case is solved, the “villain” identified and visitors have spent a happy weekend in the scenic town of Langley.
