New Bern kicks off fall this October with MumFest (October 12-14) featuring live entertainment, exhibits/vendors, delicious foods, carnival rides and more. Country music stars Dan + Shay are opening the MumFest weekend with a concert at Lawson Creek Park. Join us the following weekend for the area’s best spice and flavor competition, the Havelock Chili Festival. And, have a spooky time at New Bern's Annual Ghostwalk (October 25-27). This three-night event invites you to encounter spirits, places and stories from the past that still haunt New Bern’s present. Come for your favorite event and discover why the locals never left. Full details for each event are available on our website.
