ANNUAL New Bern Mardi Gras

Festival & Parade

See you in 2025!

A big thank-you to everyone who came to our little ‘hood for another great Mardi Gras festival – sponsors, parade participants, spectators (from as far as Raleigh), vendors, food trucks, and entertainers.

Shout-out to the volunteers, those who let us use trailers and those who pulled them, cleanup crews, stage builders, and the committee members who pull it all together.

Great family atmosphere, friendly people & dogs walking around enjoying the day, all the vendors (everything we ate, was delicious ), the fundraiser run they had today, the music with the beautiful weather. First time being there today. We enjoyed this event & look forward to it next year.

Mardi Gras in New Bern is the BEST!!

New Bern Mardi Gras was awesome! Good food, music, parade, road race, vendors. Costumes were great.

So much FUN we had, LOVED how family friendly EVERYTHING was! Music was great, cute puppet show that my daughters enjoyed & they were HAPPY girls that came home with TONS of beads!

It was so fun! Family friendly, great music and food! And all in our beautiful Ghent community.

It was my first time going and I had such a great time!

Was great to go to an event that was handicapped friendly. We met a lot of handicapped folks today and it was a pleasure.


We are thankful these businesses and neighbors who see value in our awesome community and events like ours.
