Mumfest has been a staple in New Bern for nearly forty years. The award-winning festival is entering its 38th year of celebration this October and it has evolved into a successful, fun, and an economic boost to the community.
While Mumfest is full of fun activities and events this weekend, there are also several non-profit groups and organizations that will be out this weekend trying to help people right here in Eastern Carolina.
MumFest 2017 kicks off in downtown New Bern on Friday with a kickoff concert by country music star Brett Young at Tryon Palace.
The annual event draws approximately 100,000 people to Eastern Carolina each fall.
