The New Bern Breakfast Rotary Club invites the community to its Ninth Annual Oktoberfest Celebration Fundraiser on: 

Saturday, September 28th, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM,
At their new location  - the North Carolina History Center on 529 South Front Street, New Bern, NC

A delicious traditional German meal, catered by the Chelsea Restaurant, will be served from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and the fun continues for the whole family until 10 p.m.

Musical entertainment will be provided by the award winning Harbour Towne Fest Band, a full-size Oktoberfest ensemble. Attendees also will have the opportunity to compete for bragging rights and a prize, in the traditional Oktoberfest “Masskrugstemmen,” a contest of strength and determination, for a modest entry fee.

Oktoberfest proceeds support the Club’s “Kicks-for-Kids” school shoe program, providing for the purchase of over 300 pairs of shoes for elementary school children in Craven County. Each year, school counselors identify those youth most in need and provide transportation to Coastal Sole where they can pick out a properly fitted pair of shoes. Rotary recognized the critical need of some children lacking basic shoes. This program goes a long way towards building self-esteem, especially for kids bullied or made fun of just because they don’t have proper footwear.

Tickets will go on sale starting September 1st at:

  • Mitchell Hardware, 215 Craven Street,
  • Bank of the Arts, 317 Middle Street
  • Coastal Sole on 2122 Trent Blvd.
