What is Ghostwalk?

Ghostwalk is a family-friendly event that combines spirits from New Bern's past, talented local volunteer actors, historic sites, and a fun-filled, creative environment.  It is NOT a haunted house or a homes tour. Guides will lead you through the stops in the cemetery, at which you will hear lively stories. The remainder of the event is self-guided, with spirited characters located on porches in downtown New Bern. Downtown theaters provide great skits, and local churches offer a variety of low-cost meals for Ghostwalk visitors. Click here for a handy fact sheet explaining Ghostwalk.
