Events

The Doss Heritage and Culture Center is a 501c3 organization over half of our operating budget comes from private donations and fundraising. We rely on the generosity of our community to help keep history alive. Throughout the year we have different events that help raise funds to support our mission! Check out some of our upcoming events and opportunities to support the Doss!

Victoria Cadbury, a mysterious heiress of Golden Grove, is hosting an unprecedented dinner party at the Cadbury estate in honor of The Golden Grove Historical Society. Not one for being invited to exclusive events, you were bewildered when the invitation arrived in your mailbox. The 18th-century manor has a tragic history, and there are many reports of malevolent ghosts haunting the property. Nevertheless, your curiosity has burdened you, and for this reason, you cannot miss this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Join us at the Doss for an evening of entertainment with a classic old mansion murder mystery dinner! 

Your ticket includes (3) rounds of play consisting of: cocktail hour, dinner and dessert. You are strongly encouraged to dress up (costume recommendations are included in the character description). Awards will be given for Best Dressed and Best Actor. 

Once you’ve registered, you will be sent an email from events@dosscenter.org with a character list. Characters will be assigned on a first come, first served basis; please be aware that if you register for a “REQUIRED CHARACTER,” you must be in attendance for the evening to commence. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have registered but are unable to attend. For each round, you will be given a clue card with information to share and information to withhold. During the evening, a “murder” will occur, and then it will be a race against the clock to crack the case! Who dunnit and why?
