15th Annual Taste of Coastal Carolina

Tickets on sale now!

The 15th Annual Taste of Coastal Carolina in New Bern is scheduled for March 13, 2018. The Taste of Coastal Carolina is New Bern’s major annual fundraiser supporting the work of the three Riverkeepers for the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico Rivers, including the Lower Neuse RIVERKEEPER®.

Last year 20 local restaurants, caterers and bakeries participated in The Taste of Coastal Carolina providing a great selection of mouthwatering tastes ranging from savory to sweet.

Tickets are $100 each which includes a $60 tax deductible donation to Sound Rivers – purchase tickets HERE.  All patrons enjoy reserved seating, a bar with complimentary wine and beer, additional wine and beer tastings, and some of your favorite restaurants serving up great food. Doors open at 5:30pm.  The relaxed atmosphere allows patrons time to enjoy catching up with friends, sample a great variety of food from local restaurants, and a chance to vote for their favorite dishes.  Every effort is made to accommodate requests to seat friends together, and the purchase of 10 tickets reserves a complete table for friends or business associates.
