The Great Trent River Raft Race!

The Great Trent River Raft Race is back!

In the 70’s and early 80’s there was an event….an event that drew thousands to the shores of the Trent River to watch a spectacle like no other. Hundreds of participants built homemade rafts and raced in The Great Trent River Raft Race.

A couple of decades later the race is back!

Saturday, June 23, 2018 will see the return of the race to New Bern NC – so come down to Union Point park and witness all the paddle boards, kayaks, homemade raft races, and fun had by all!  This will be a day of great family fun!

All the action starts at 11 AM at Union Point Park and goes all the way until New Bern’s own Bryan Mayer takes the stage at 6PM!
