If you would like to add your own event, you can do that by clicking here. This form is for promoting an event via the calendar, only. It is not for reserving community centers or spaces. 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.

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.

About the FestivalSouth featured artist

FestivalFeatured Artist, Darryl Anderson was born in Los Angeles California in 1967. His parents divorced when he was 4 years old, and with his father returned to Mississippi. Darryl graduated from Provine High school in Jackson.

While sketching at his desk as switchboard operator at the Hinds County Detention Center, then sheriff Malcolm McMillin noticed Darryl’s  talent and gave him a watercolor set to just “try something new. “ A friend gave him a book by Mississippi artist Wyatt Waters and Darryl loved his unique style. Sheriff McMillin soon contacted Waters who was teaching Adult Enrichment classes at Millsaps and asked if there was a spot for Darryl. Those adult art classes were filled with local ladies, mostly housewives that took him under their wings like “mother hens.”

Falling in love with scenes of the South as a child, Darryl, translated those scenes with watercolor hues and a brush. He now travels throughout the south with a vagabond approach to each painting. According to Wyatt Waters, “Darryl was motivated to find his passion and pursue it.” Darryl says” If you’re an artist, just paint, just do it! Don’t worry about what others think!” 


Darryl now has his own gallery, the D. Anderson Gallery, located in Hazlehurst, Mississippi.
