New Bern, NC

Beautiful, historic New Bern will again host the Feast of Tabernacles. It is located at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers and was settled in 1710 by Swiss and German immigrants. Named after “Bern,” Switzerland, New Bern is the second-oldest European settled colonial town in North Carolina. In addition to beautiful riverfront views, dining, sightseeing, access to the Atlantic Ocean, and a very walkable downtown where Feast-goers can easily mingle and fellowship with each other before or after church services, New Bern is rich in history.  
The city first served as the colonial capital and then as the state capital until 1792, at which time the capital was relocated to Raleigh. Historic New Bern is family friendly and offers museums, beautiful parks, water access, ample dining options, fun tourist shops, and a southern charm atmosphere. A famous local attraction, and one of the planned excursions, is the historic Tryon Palace Governor’s mansion which served as the original state capital building. The Tryon Palace grounds now include a large state history museum, about 16 acres of gardens, and several other historic buildings. Nearby you will find ample restaurant options, local retailers, beautiful green space, and other historic attractions such as the New Bern Fireman’s Museum, honoring the oldest chartered fire department in North Carolina.  
New Bern is also the birthplace of both the first chief justice of the state Supreme Court and the composer of the North Carolina state song. The state’s first public school was opened in New Bern. The city is the birthplace of Pepsi-Cola and is the location of the state’s first printing press. Some additional possible excursions are the North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll, an afternoon at Fort Macon State Park beach, and a short 20-minute ferry ride to see the wild horses on beautiful Shackleford Island.  
Inspired by the city’s “Bern,” Switzerland heritage, downtown New Bern is also home to more than 50 decorated bear statues. But most importantly, New Bern is one of the many locations where God has placed His name this year. From all of us who will be serving at God’s Feast of Tabernacles in New Bern, we extend our warm welcome, and we hope to see you there!
