The 2022 B/S/H/ Oktoberfest is the New Bern Breakfast Rotary’s largest fundraiser of the year. Money raised at this fun family celebration goes to support nonprofits in and around New Bern so they can continue their important work. It also makes possible the club’s signature project, Kicks For Kids, that provides hundreds of local students with new shoes every fall.
This fun community event and the good it leads to is made possible by dozens of local businesses and individuals who serve as our sponsors. The New Bern Breakfast Rotary hopes you will remember these local champions of the community when you make some of your shopping decisions. Thank you!
B/S/H/ is again the title sponsor of the Oktoberfest in New Bern. Riverside Automotive Group is our band sponsor and R & D Brewing is our beer sponsor.

The New Bern Breakfast Rotary Club will host the 11th annual B/S/H/ Oktoberfest, beginning at 5:00 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, at Union Point Park in New Bern.
New Location, New Band
Big changes are in the works for this year’s event, according to Bill Stafford, the event’s chair. “We are thrilled to be hosting the B/S/H/ Oktoberfest at New Bern’s number-one festival site, Union Point Park,” Stafford said. The celebration will be held under an enormous white tent to be placed in the park.
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.
