  • 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.

William Carey University’s Office of Military Engagement invites the military community and the public to a Feb. 1 event at Camp Shelby – “Celebrating Your Service: Faith, Family, Country.”

The guest speaker will be retired U.S. Army Ranger Jeff Struecker, who served in Somalia during a civil war. In the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu, the 24-year-old sergeant and squad leader was assigned to Task Force Ranger as a part of the 75th Ranger Regiment. During the battle, Struecker led a three-vehicle convoy through intense fire to bring a private severely wounded in a fall from a Black Hawk helicopter back to base.

Struecker was awarded the Silver Star. His actions in Mogadishu were featured in the movie, “Black Hawk Down,” which received four Academy Award nominations.
