New Bern Bears

In honor of New Bern’s 300th Anniversary in 2010, over 50 fiberglass, ceramic bears were sponsored and adopted by local businesses to be placed throughout the city. Since then, more than twenty additional bears have been placed in various locations.

A great way to see the city is to follow the Bear Town Bears map and track down all the bears. Each bear has a different theme, artist and sponsor, making every one unique. And, they love to pose for pictures.
