Mark your calendars! MumFest is coming in October

t’s a little over three months away – MumFest in New Bern is coming in October!

The kick-off concert is Friday, October 13. The festival is Saturday and Sunday, October 14 and 15, 2017.

WITN is proud to be the television sponsor of MumFest. The festival is fun for the whole family, with amusement rides, street performers, displays, vendors, arts and crafts and amazing food.

This is the second year for the beer garden at the festival. It’s a sports bar of sorts with live music throughout the festival. It’s free to get in, but you must be at least 21 to purchase a beverage. Alcoholic drinks are also restricted to this area.

The festival also includes a MumFest 5K and a one-mile race.

And don’t forget the boat show, which will be located at Union Point Park.
