Hattiesburg, MS 39401


FestivalSouth is Mississippi’s only multi-week, multi-genre arts festival, offering both free and ticketed events to local residents and cultural tourists. Presented by the Hattiesburg Concert Association (HCA), this year’s festival promises to be a two-week experience you won’t forget!

Whether it’s classical, jazz, country, or gospel, FestivalSouth offers music for every age range and musical taste. Our FestivalArtists bring craftsmen, artisans, and tourists together to experience unique art and sculpture exhibits from local talent. Dance events bring exciting movement to the festival, while Artie Events for kids offer fun, fun, fun for FestivalFamilies. Two exciting new events in the festival this year are the FestivalSouth Film Expo and Festival5k. Both events are fresh and exciting additions to the Festival that are sure to impress our audience!
