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.

Join us on Saturday, February 9 for Moonlight Cocktail, a killer-diller of a block party hosted by Hattiesburg Saenger Theater to unveil the City’s next phase of string lighting and to celebrate the Glenn Miller Orchestra Band being in Hattiesburg.

You don’t want to miss this throwback event featuring craft-themed cocktails, vintage photo opportunities and pre-show jazz from the 40s. No matter your age, we encourage you to dress in your best and travel back in time as we unveil a new feature in Downtown Hattiesburg, followed by quality music from another era. We suggest grabbing your tickets to the Glenn Miller Orchestra Band before the big night!

The block party will begin at 6 p.m., Mayor Toby Barker will flip the switch on the new lights at 7:15 p.m. and the Glenn Miller Band will go on stage at 8 p.m.

The block party and lighting ceremony is free to attend, but tickets are required for the Glenn Miller Band. Get them here:
