Newbern festival on tap

The 28th annual Newbern Fall Festival is set for this weekend.
The festival will begin Friday, Oct. 10, as a set-up day and will run through Sunday, Oct. 12, with events held in the Newbern Community Center, the Wilderness Road Regional Museum and numerous stops along Newbern’s Wilderness Road.
The Newbern Fall Festival will offer arts and crafts, food, music, walking tours of historic Newbern and more.
The main focus of the festival will be the local arts and crafts vendors who will be set up all weekend selling their creations.
Ann Bailey, director of the Wilderness Road Regional Museum, who has been involved with the festival since it began 28 years ago, said, “You never know what people are bringing until they get here.”
In addition to arts and crafts, the Newbern United Methodist Church and the Newbern Church of God will be holding apple butter making sessions all day on Saturday.
Rides on the Antique Tractor Pull will be given beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Ruritan Headquarters in Newbern.
Gospel singing and walking tours of historic Newbern will occur all day on Saturday as well.
The museum will hold a silent auction until 4 p.m. on Sunday, and you do not have to be present to win.
The Newbern Eclectic Corporation, home of the Carousel Horses, will be showing their extinct animal display all weekend.
And what would any good festival be without food?
Breakfast on Saturday will be country ham, sausage, biscuits and gravy, served up by the Newbern Church of God and the Newbern Fire Department.
The museum will be serving lunch and dinner on both Saturday and Sunday, with foods including turkey plates, brown beans, corn bread, and more.
In addition, there will be other food vendors throughout the festival.
The festival begins with set-up day on Oct. 10, and will be open all day on Saturday, Oct. 11, and from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 12.
Parking is $1, and the Newbern Promotional Bureau hopes to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Fire Department, Wilderness Road Regional Museum and Newbern Community Center.
