GHOSTWALK 2016 PLANNING IS IN PROGRESS —
READ ON FOR IMPORTANT FACTS.
CHECK BACK SOON FOR MORE DETAILS!
Ghostwalk is a family-friendly event that combines historic stories, talented local actors, a look at historic sites not normally open to the public, and a fun-filled, creative environment. It is NOT just another haunted house!
Ghostwalk is a self-guided tour that allows guests to step into New Bern’s past. This year you will meet many of the colorful and quirky characters who lived here throughout the centuries and continue to haunt our fair city. As night falls in New Bern’s Historic District October 27-29 these ghostly characters will reappear, so be on the lookout!
Meet spirits at 17 different historic ghost haunts including homes, churches, and theatres. Enjoy the ghostly actors who will share their spirited stories in the very locations that their characters lived and visited.
At Cedar Grove Cemetery, candlelight will lead you on oyster shell paths as historic figures emerge from shadows to tell you their stories.
Enjoy a historically and hysterically funny skit at the Attmore-Oliver House, home of the New Bern Historical Society. Buy home-baked treats at our Veri-Good Bakery on the Attmore-Oliver House grounds!
Delight in special Ghostwalk entertainment in the Historic Athens and Masonic Theatres presented by our partners from the New Bern Civic Theatre and RiverTowne Players.
Enjoy a meal or snack at one of our partner churches.
Ghostwalk tickets are good for all 3 nights.
