Signature Events

The Annual Oktoberfest hosted on New Bedford’s waterfront is the heritage and largest event coordinated by the SCBA. This event takes the better part of a year to plan and and is how the SCBA raises the majority of its funds for community support. Our all-volunteer crew divides and conquers tasks to improve the event year after year.

Attendees can expect a variety of craft and traditional brews as well as local food vendors throughout the evening. The ticket price covers admission to the event and allows us to book great musical acts to create the soundtrack to a great night. This event has attracted over 1,000 locals and travelers alike annually. Come in your finest lederhosen or jeans and a sweatshirt. The ambience is cool and the vibe is chill. And whats more…..your drinking for a great cause!


Cinco De Mayo Golf Classic

Calling all golfers (and pretenders)! The annual Cinco De Mayo Golf Classic is our second event that gives way to Spring and kicks off the golf season on the South Coast.

Hosted at the prestigious and private Country Club of New Bedford, this event takes place right around Cinco De Mayo for added celebrations. Tequila is optional. You don’t have to be the best golfer, just committed to creating a better community through the investment of our youth. Our foursomes usually sell out pretty quickly. Tee time is at 12n and a networking event follows the final swing!
