In addition to a new venue, this year’s B/S/H/ Oktoberfest will start an hour earlier at 5:00 p.m. It will also feature a different musical act, Raleigh-Durham-based The Little German Band and Dancers, which has entertained around the country and in Germany since 1971. The 28-member orchestra, accompanied by live dancers, will be performing throughout evening.

An Event Benefitting The Community

The B/S/H/ Oktoberfest is the New Bern Breakfast Rotary Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, according to Brant Bills, club president. Proceeds support the club’s many charitable endeavors including scholarships for local students, advancing area nonprofits and underwriting the club’s signature annual project, Kicks-for-Kids, a program that supplies new athletic shoes to hundreds of children in Craven County.

B/S/H/ Oktoberfest, organized by the New Bern Breakfast Rotary Club, is made possible thanks to the generosity of dozens of businesses and individuals who are donating sponsors.
