Clue Murder Mystery Dinner Owensboro Convention Center

Sep 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Clue Murder Mystery Dinner @ Owensboro Convention Center | Owensboro | Kentucky | United States

wanted to take part in a live game of Clue?  This is your chance!  All of your favorite Clue characters like Mr. Green, Mrs. White, Colonel Mustard and more are back in a take on the 1970’s classic move “Clue.”  The plot will unfold throughout the evening, and we’ll need your help to determine whodunit!  Perhaps it was Mrs. Peacock in the library with a candlestick?  You’ll have to attend and see!

Guests will enjoy a clue-themed dinner that includes Colonel Mustard skirt steak, Professor Plum pork chops, and Miss Scarlet red velvet cake (please see menu below), plus an opportunity to interrogate suspects, gather clues, and crack the case!

Dress the part of your favorite Clue character!  Regular attire won’t be considered suspicious though. Doors will open at 6:00pm for cocktails.  Dinner will start at 6:30pm, followed by the murder mystery.

No more than 6 people will be allowed to sit at a 66” banquet table.  Tables will be set 6 feet apart from each other to allow for proper social distancing.  Guests will not be seated with other parties. The meal will be served.  Performers and audience participants will wear masks and maintain a 6 foot distance.

The Great Race Downtown Owensboro

Aug 25 @ 5:00 pm
The Great Race @ Downtown Owensboro

One of the United States most famous car races is making an overnight stop in Owensboro on August 25, 2021.  The Great Race, the world’s premiere old car rally, will bring 120 of the world’s finest antique automobiles to town for the event, with the first car rolling into downtown starting at 5 p.m.

Participants in the Great Race will cover more than 2,300 miles over nine days. The race will start June 20 in front of the Alamo in San Antonio and finish in Greenville, S.C., on June 28.  Teams and cars from Japan, England, Germany, Canada and every corner of the U.S. will participate in their vintage automobiles that date back as far as 1916.  

Visit Owensboro and partners are so excited for this unique event!  These racers are coming from all over the world to experience our city!  When the Great Race pulls into a city it becomes an instant festival!  The riverfront will have an exciting atmosphere not only for the racers but for the entire community to come downtown to view the incredible cars while enjoying live music and having great foods and drinks!   Not only will this event be a great opportunity for the residents to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime car spectacle, it will also have a nice economic impact for our hotels, restaurants and shops!

This will definitely be a “busy week” for Owensboro with ROMP,  per Chris Joslin, Executive Director Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum, “we are happy to share our property with the Great Race as the Road to ROMP”!  

The Great Race began 37 years ago, it is not a speed race, but a time/speed/distance rally. The vehicles, each with a driver and navigator, are given precise instructions each day that detail every move down to the second.  Each are scored at secret check points along the way and are penalized one second for each second either late or early.  As in golf, the lowest score is the winner!
