Chrysanthemums, free garden tours and more. Hundreds of mums will be on display in our gardens along with a variety of fall blooming plants. Want to take home some of that fall blooming splendor? Our Fall Heritage Plant Sale will be held Friday and Saturday on the Daves House Lawn just off George and Pollock Streets. The Tryon Palace garden shop will also be open on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with gardening gift selections. Every year, the Tryon Palace Fall Heritage Plant Sale coincides with Mumfest, a weekend-long event sponsored by the City of New Bern and produced by Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corp., that is one of the finest award winning festivals in the state of North Carolina. The combination of family fun, entertainment, attractions, exhibitors and savory foods in the beautifully restored setting of downtown New Bern and its waterfront, is enjoyed by more than 90,000 festival-goers every fall.
