The Rotary Club of New Bern board of directors has elected to cancel Sham-Rockin’ 20 scheduled for March 13 at the North Carolina History Center due to the increasing risks of the coronavirus.  This decision comes after the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services recommended canceling or postponing events of mass gathering events that may draw high-risk persons.


We apologize and are disappointed that we cannot host this event for our community, but the potential public safety risks associated with hosting the function are increasing by the minute.


If you purchased a ticket, you can either make this a donation to Rotary or contact the Rotary Club member who sold you the ticket for more details on how your ticket will be refunded.


If you purchased a ticket through Mitchell Hardware, please contact Clayton Cheek at to request a refund.


If you purchased your ticket through EventBrite, you should see the funds credited to the card used for the purchase in the next 7-14 business days.


Thank you for your support of The Rotary Club of New Bern and our Sham-Rockin’ 2020 event!
