The Kitchens of New Bern tour is a unique opportunity to explore the heart of some of historic New Bern's most outstanding residences on Saturday, September 24. Visit the homes that have opened their kitchens in support of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at New Bern, inviting you to garner ideas for designing your own new kitchen or renovating the existing heart of your home. Capture the newest industry ideas and learn about state-of-the-art products from many of our sponsors. Then finish the tour with a special BBQ lunch at the historic Isaac Taylor House Garden in downtown New Bern.

The Kitchens of New Bern tour is a self-guided tour taken at your own pace. You may start the tour at any point and visit sites in any order. Parking is available throughout the historic district.
