Share this event:






An Evening at Fanny's is an interactive evening of entertainment, set at one of Drumheller's famous brothels during the Prohibition years. The event recreates a respectable function to which both men and women are involved. A fried chicken dinner, honkytonk music, games of chance, and a stage show create a fun filled evening. Guests will mingle with historic characters, and are encouraged to dress up for this event in their favourite retro finery.

Between 1917 and 1918, Mary Roper and Fanny Ramsley arrived in the Drumheller Valley where they established two of the most successful brothels in Alberta. Gambling, drinking, dancing and excellent food were all great reasons to come and enjoy a night at Mary's or Fanny's. Customers minded their manners though, as both women kept weapons on hand. Often stuck in cramped company housing, coal miners welcomed the idea of spending the evening in the company of a lady. The two best known sections of town were "the Western Front" and the "Blue Light District" where gambling, bootlegging and brothels flourished. Occasionally, these thriving businesses were raided and the owners ended up in court. However, no judge would ever convict them. If he did he would never be welcome there again!
