Beary Merry Christmas Sponsorship Opportunities

Beary Merry Christmas sponsorship are a gift for the whole community!

The Beary Merry Christmas committee is planning a vibrant time in Downtown New Bern again for our annual Beary Merry Christmas. Over the past seven years we have championed activities that bring visitors and residents of New Bern to Downtown for positives, family friendly activities the whole community can share.  Last year drew record numbers for the second year in a row.  Snow fell nearly 30 hours over a 4 week period, Santa and his helpers took over 3,000 pictures and received over 400 letters.

Click here for information on how to secure your sponsorship and be a part of this beloved community event!

Much of the advertising for the Christmas season is secured way in advance.  For this reason we ask that those interested in participating please make their pledge by October 5, 2018 to be included advertising.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,
Amanda Banks


​Volunteers are needed throughout the season. From helping Santa in the Santa House, to setting up Light up the Season activity booths, to making cookies at the Sledding & Shopping day, and more, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
There are great opportunities for youth and activity groups, and for anyone who enjoys helping with community events - you are sure to have lots of fun!

We love our customers and we love our community. Every #NewBernStrong cookie we sell, the proceeds will go back to our community to help rebuild our town we all love. We open at 7am, so come on in and get a cookie or two. You all have been such great supporters of our restaurants and we want to give back to all of you. Thank you for checking on us after the storm and making sure we were all okay. We are thankful for each and every one of you!!
