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. 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.
  • 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.

Krewe of St. Catherine 2nd Annual Roll & Stroll Parade and Block Party

The Krewe of St. Catherine is a Carnival krewe that celebrates Mardi Gras with a marching parade event on Friday, February 2nd, in Downtown Hattiesburg. This parade is unique, as only walking or other human-powered movement is permitted. Handmade throws are also encouraged from the krewes. The parade will commence at the Hattiesburg Community Arts Center, traverse Main Street, Front Street, and culminate in a fun-filled block party on Mobile Street in front of The Ruins near Lucky Rabbit.

To participate in the parade you must:
1. Pay your yearly membership dues $20 to stroll in the parade for 13 and up, and $10 for children ages 4-12.
2. Gather your sub-krewe and prepare to stroll!
*Message us for a group rate if your Sub-Krewe is larger than 20 members.
This year’s theme is “Rock & Roll Stroll” honoring the rich live music culture in downtown Hattiesburg!
Remember that we encourage handmade throws, fun costumes, and clever Sub-Krewe names! We can’t wait to see your creativity and celebration of the culture of Hattiesburg!
