New Bern's 300th Anniversary

You can't live in New Bern and not know that we are getting ready for our 300th Anniversary coming up in 2010.

A website has been created where you can keep up with all the events. The link is http://www.newbern300.com/.

We've been planning this celebration for about 5 years and it has been the catalyst for getting many large projects done. Here is an abbreivated list (there are many more not listed here).

- The renovation of the Federal Building
- The Construction of our new Trent River Bridge
- Work on our River Walk
- Broad Street Makeover

and lots more!

At Carolina Creations we'll be having our 20th anniversary which we are going to celebrate for the entire year starting in October. You'll be hearing more about this as it gets closer. But some of the things we have planned are

- A show of Blown glass ornaments by 20 glassblowers
- An artist paints New Bern for 20 years (book)
- A month where we have a $20 gift section
- A drawing for 20 gifts
- A month with 20% off certain items
- Special exhibits will open every other month during ArtWalk in March, May, July, September, and November. To receive notification of these shows sign up for our newsletter which comes out every other month.
