Beast Fest food vendors are carefully selected. 

We make every effort to avoid duplication of foods so our attendees will have a wide variety to choose from

Each vendor is required to prepare their specialties on-site and ALL Food Vendors must be inspected and obtain a Temporary Food Establishment Permit from the Bladen County Health Department, prior to opening for business. ​​

Food Vendors will begin customer service on

Friday from 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Saturday from 10:00 am -10:00 pm

​​We're sure you will also hear from a few "local celebrities" that will be introduced by our Mistress of Ceremonies, Sarah from The Big Wake Up With Don Chase and Sarah from WKLM.

Best "Beast Fest" Foods

Beast Fest is known for having a wide variety of freshly prepared foods, including the
"Beast Fest Collard Sandwich"
Each year, we will meet someone who says "We drove several hours just to get a Beast Fest Collard Sandwich".
If you have not experienced the pleasure of a Beast Fest Collard Sandwich, you owe it to yourself to give it a try

Beast Fest is proudly hosted by the 50+ all volunteer membership of Boost the Boro. 

Since its formation in 2006, Boost the Boro has operated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization working to make our extended communities a better place to live. 

Beast Fest is only possible because of the continued support of our many business sponsors and of course, all of those who attend.

Beast Fest Halloween Costume Contest


​​​​2021 Nightly Entertainment & Street Dance​

Known as a Soul, R&B party band based out of North Myrtle Beach , SC. Their musical repertoire covers decades of hits from your favorite artists and genres of music including soul, rhythm & blues, funk, reggae, jazz standards, country, 50, 60's and Carolina Beach Music. Gary Lowder & SMOKIN’ HOT..... are comprised of multi-talented musicians who have come together to produce incredible performances each and every time they take the stage and are a Beast Fest favorite!!!

The Beast Fest Costume Contest continues to grow each year and we see some really unique costumes show up. 

The contest has four separate age groups from infants up to age twelve.  There will be cash prizes and trophies awarded in each age category.

Scheduled to begin on Saturday afternoon and parents will need to sign their child up as early as possible, but before 3:00. Look for signs at one of the Boost the Boro tents.         

New Light Churchwill again host a Halloween Beast Fest “Trunk or Treat” production on Railroad Street this year that will start around dusk. 

This is not your typical Trunk or Treat event.  It is truly a production effort by members of New Light Church, complete with costumed characters that will not only be passing out goodies to the children, but will also be delivering a positive message as each child and their parent go through several decorated themed stops.

New Light "Trunk or Treat"


Because we have such generous sponsors of Beast Fest, there is NEVER AN ADMISSION CHARGE and we are always looking for new events and activities to make Beast Fest both FUN and ENTERTAINING for the entire family.  

We also realize there will be some in our communities who would find attending a festival to be a financial hardship, so we make sure there are always plenty of FREE fun things to do, plus the entertainment schedule on Saturday is nonstop from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM can be enjoyed completely free. 

Please take a moment to review our list of sponsors and tell them know how much you appreciate their support, but more importantly, show them by doing business with them when possible.​

The Grand Opening Ceremonieswill ​​​​​​​​​​begin at 10:00 am on Saturday with the appearance of the "Beast of Bladenboro". 

This is always a delight to both children and adults and B.O.B. always has some goodies to pass out to the crowd--so make sure and get there early.​

And, what would a Small Town Festival be unless a few of the elected officials dropped by?  This is as American as Apple Pie.....  

We're always happy when our elected officials take their personal time to stop by and enjoy the festival, talk to the people, enjoy the great food and entertainment, and yes, we do try and give them a few minutes to speak to the crowd.....but B.O.B. is always watching and keeps them on the clock.

Due to the rapid spread of covid-19 in 2020, the Board of Directors determined the most responsible action for us to take was to suspend the 14th Annual Beast Fest.  Like so many other outdoor festivals, concerts, sporting events and large gatherings, our voluntary decision to suspend last year's festival soon became a mandate issued by the State of North Carolina. 

After being curtailed for a season, Boost the Boro, Inc. is proud to announce that the 14th Annual Beast Fest will resume in 2021 and our members are already hard at work to make this year the "BIGGEST and BEST" Beast Fest ever. 

Mark your calendars, call old friends, invite your out-of-town family and make plans to join the thousands who will attend this year on   

Friday - October 29th

(5:30 pm - 10:30 pm)

Saturday - October 30th
