Not only is it a new year but a new DECADE! Looking for somewhere to ring in 2020? Hattiesburg is the place for you! Whether you are coming in from out of town or are a local, the Hub City is an exciting destination for everyone to celebrate.



Head into the heart of Downtown Hattiesburg to find the city’s Midnight on Front Street Celebration! At this second annual, family-friendly event, count down as the Hub Sign - our version of the ball - drops and get ready to kiss 2019 goodbye. Enjoy live music along Main and Front Streets while creating memories with friends, family, visitors, and fellow Hattiesburgers. No time to eat before you #GetDowntown? No worries! Street vendors will set up throughout the event and local restaurants are serving favorite dishes and breakfast into the wee hours of 2020. As the clock strikes midnight, sit back and watch a booming fireworks show! You can worry about your resolutions tomorrow (or next week).



Feeling fancy? Ring in 2020 by dancing the night away at The Bottling Company! Grab your friends and head to the Hub City New Year’s Eve Celebration in Downtown Hattiesburg. With a live performance by Madewood Street Music, dinner, dancing, champagne, and more, this event prepares to welcome a new decade with glitz and glam! You’ll even be able to see the dual firework show from Midnight on Front Street. Buy your tickets or opt to purchase a Stay & Play package that includes your tickets (more on that later).
