There is never a shortage of things to do or see in the Hub City. If you are looking for something to do, we encourage you to sift through the many events listed here.

If you would like to add your own event, you can do that by clicking here. Please see the following guidelines for posting requirements:

  • Listed events must have a point of contact or link for more information (website, ticketing vendor or Facebook event).
  • All events will be submitted for review before being published, with approval in 24-48 hours. If an event is not approved, the point of contact listed on the event will be contacted.
  • A photo for uploading is helpful, but not required.
  • All events should take place in the City of Hattiesburg.
  • The City of Hattiesburg reserves the right to approve or deny any event listing and to edit the content submitted for final publication.
  • The posting of an event does not provide for the event being  endorsed through the status of being “city-sanctioned” (approval needed by the City Council) or “city-sponsored.” However, both city-sanction and city-sponsored events will also be listed here.

NOTE: Submitting an event for publication on the calendar is not the same as filing for a permit to host an event that requires the use of city property, streets or needs traffic support. For permits, you’ll need to submit a permit application to the Hattiesburg Police Department. The application can be downloaded here: Event & Parade Permits.

Star-Spangled Celebration on the River

Chain Park, Chain Park Drive
Hattiesburg, MS 39401` United States

The Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association and the Petal Area Chamber of Commerce are partnering together to host the 2nd Annual Star-Spangled Celebration on the River! 

Taking place on Wednesday, July 3 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Hattiesburg’s Chain Park and Petal River Park, the event will close out the night with a 9 p.m. fireworks display over the Leaf River.

Presented by Coca-Cola, the celebration will be family-friendly for residents and visitors of both Hattiesburg and Petal. Live music, activities, a kids’ zone, and a range of food vendors will be on both sides of the Leaf River. Additionally, official event t-shirts and tank tops will be available for purchase in both parks. Admission to the event is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit back and enjoy the festivities. Pets, glass, tents, and personal fireworks (including sparklers) are not permitted at this event. Parking onsite is limited, but offsite parking with shuttle service will be available.

Those with accessibility needs are encouraged to enjoy the festivities on the Hattiesburg side, as Petal River Park is not as accessible.

For more information on the music lineup and available vendors, follow the event on Facebook at “Star-Spangled Celebration on the River.”
