This is a fun-raiser event to benefit the Vent Haven Museum in Fort Mitchell, KY. Vent Haven is the only museum in the world dedicated to the art of ventriloquism. Every year, hundreds of tourists visit the museum to see this amazing collection, to learn about ventriloquism and its history, and to see how puppets and dummies are made.

Our founder, W.S. Berger, spent more than 40 years amassing a personal collection of everything related to ventriloquism: dummies, puppets, photos, scripts, memorabilia, playbills, posters, recordings, and on and on and on! In 1973 his massive collection was officially opened to the public and since then has more than doubled in size as its name and reputation have spread worldwide.

Housing more than 1,100 dummies used by ventriloquists from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, Vent Haven's uniqueness draws tourists from literally around the world.
