The New Bern Area Young Professionals' Group is proud to present the 3rd Annual YPG River Jam. This year's event is going to be held in Union Point Park on Friday, August 16th. 

Please join us for an evening of live music and fun on the waterfront in beautiful downtown New Bern!! We are excited to welcome two new bands to the New Bern area for this year's River Jam. Old Habits, Raleigh, NC's favorite southern roots and bluegrass band will start off the night. The fun won't stop there, as they will be followed by headliners, Yo Mama's Big Fat Booty Band, all the way from Asheville, NC!  And, as if you needed another reason, proceeds from the event will benefit the Piedmont Natural Gas and New Bern Young Professionals Group Scholarship fund for local aspiring college students! Check out the bands at the links below. This is one event you do not want to miss!
