Dillinger Days is an exciting commemoration of the events that lead to the capture of John Dillinger right here at the hotel in 1934.  Every year the hotel is taken back through time to the prohibition era and features everything from live music to vintage car shows to magic shows and even a speakeasy bar with whiskey and cigar tastings!

 The main attraction is a free, daytime event for the whole family! An amazing re-enactment of the John Dillinger capture by HothsotPerformer.com is performed in the middle of a carnival,  vintage car show, walking tours of the hotel and it’s incredible history, and live prohibition era music.  Best of all this entire event is FREE and has something for everyone from the kids to the grandparents!!!
