And don't forget MumFeast!, October 15-16 for 'Feasting in the Streets' in Downtown New Bern


MumFeast! 2020 was such a big hit we're bringing it back!! MumFeast! celebrates Downtown New Bern's restaurants in a weekend-long dining-in-the-streets event! In addition to dining-in-the-streets you'll find a food truck rodeo, several dozen street vendors, and live music! Downtown streets close Friday, October 15 at 5pm and reopen Saturday, October 16 at 10:00pm. Downtown and Union Point Park will remain decorated with mums, including the fan favorite mum arch and maze. MumFeast! is held on Middle, Pollock and Craven streets. See you then!

MumFest is one of the finest award-winning festivals in the state of North Carolina. It is recognized statewide as a major eastern North Carolina family festival and has received numerous awards over the years to include Best NC Main Street Downtown Event, Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 October events, and the Sun Journal Reader’s Choice winner as Best Festival for many years running. MumFest is a great weekend for visitors of all ages!
