OktoberFest LogoIt is time once again to celebrate OktoberFest with the New Bern Breakfast Rotary Club. With your participation, the money from this fundraiser helps to support our unique“Kicks for Kids" program that purchases shoes for over 300 needy Craven County elementary school students. We also provide support to the YMCA summer camp program.


Saturday, September 29th, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM,
New Bern Riverfront Convention Center

Adult tickets for Oktoberfest are $20.00 in advance, and $25.00 at the door. 
Active duty military personnel may buy tickets at the door at the advance ticket price of $20.00.
Children’s admission is $5 for ages 6-12
(includes a hot dog, chips, and drink). Kids 5 & under are free.

Enjoy a traditional Oktoberfest plate of brattwurst, sauerkraut and german style potatoe salad - soft drinks, iced tea or water are included with your meal. For additional fees, other beverages including beer and wine will be available. Traditional large pretzels and desserts can also be purchased.

The award winning Harbour Towne Festival Band - a full size authentic OktoberFest Blaskapelle band from Wilmington - will again be providing music for your dancing and listening pleasure.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enter and compete for bragging rights in the traditional Oktoberfest “Masskrugstemmen,” a contest of strength and determination (for a small additional fee).
