Now in its 33rd year, Ghostwalk is a family-friendly fall event that combines spirits from New Bern’s past, talented local volunteer actors, historic sites, and a fun-filled, creative environment.

Each year features a new theme and new scripts. Guides will lead you through the stops in the cemetery, at which you will hear lively stories based on real historical characters and events. The remainder of the event is self-guided, with historical spirits telling you their spirited tales on outdoor porches and in select buildings in downtown New Bern. Downtown theaters provide great skits, and local churches offer tours and a budget-friendly meals for Ghostwalk visitors.

Ghostwalk is not a haunted house, spooky, supernatural, or a homes tour.

Tickets will go on sale mid-September. Check back on newbernhistorical.org for more details!
