Ridgefield Whodunnits

2022 Ridgefield Whodunnits will take place on Saturday, April 2 in Downtown Ridgefield.

A Tail in the Hundred Acre Wood

Oh bother! It appears someone has taken Eeyore’s tail! We’re sure they meant it in good fun, but we need your help to figure out whodunnit and get Eeyore his tail back!

Are you a good enough detective to figure out which suspect took Eeyore’s tail? Who did it? Where did they do it? What type of distraction did they use?

Join in the mystery game! Check in at the City tent at Overlook Park on Saturday, April 2 beginning at 9am to get your detective packet

Clues will be hidden in Downtown Ridgefield (south of Division, west of S 9th Ave, north of Shobert St, and east of Lake River) along sidewalks, in parks or inside open businesses.

Search high and low for paper clues that will mention either a suspect, a distraction or a location that was NOT used in the crime. Mark off the information on your mystery game card to help you narrow down the answer.

Once you have figured out the mystery complete the game card and return to Overlook Park for a prize. Complete the mystery by 12:30PM so that when Christopher Robin gets back to Overlook Park he can pin Eeyore’s tail back on!
