New Murder Mystery event dates added!

I know the Murder Mystery dates have been filling up quickly. The good news is that they’ve added lots more dates. In fact, you can choose a date all the way into October. There’s even an October 30 event! Is there a better way to spend the day before Halloween than at a Murder Mystery dinner?

The Kentucky Castle has its own restaurant on site – Castle Farms. 90% of the produce served to guests is grown right there on the farm. In fact, the castle’s working farm grows as much of the food as possible right there on site. Their gardens include vegetable gardens, a mushroom farm, a truffle orchard, and lavender fields (watch for the lavender in front of the castle walls). They also have animals on the farm, everything from goats to horses to bees!

  1. These dates are sold out and a mask is required. Why they still advertise when its sold out os beyond me. Crap i say.

  2. Hi Brian, When this article was written they had lots of openings. This is not an advertisement from The Kentucky Castle; it’s just something I chose to write about because I thought it would make for a great night out. They do have lots of other events that are still open. And I think you’ll find that a mask is going to be required at lots of places this summer.

  3. It looks super cool am very interested I’m wondering what types of restaurants do they have inside and do you have to reserve or bad

  4. I looked for that info online, Sherry, and couldn’t find anything more than a statement that they have no dress code. I did read through some reviews on TripAdvisor and they said business casual.

  5. Hi Zackery, The pricing differs. If you click the link for the event website, you’ll find all the pricing there.

  6. Hi Nikki, It does appear that the August 12 date is sold out. I don’t think they’re offering the event on August 13. If you’d like to call The Kentucky Castle to inquire about that date, their number is (859) 256-0322.

  7. Maybe I misunderstood or miss read it but it says you need to purchase tickets as a household since it’ll be a seating for six. What if just two people wanting to come

  8. Hi Curtis, Your best answer will come from The Kentucky Castle. You can give them a call at (859) 256-0322.
