The Downtown Hattiesburg Association, in partnership with the Hattiesburg Historic Neighborhood Association, invites the public to celebrate the holiday season on Saturday, December 9, 2023, for Downtown Candlelit Christmas.

The 2023 holiday weekend includes a variety of special events, all centered in and around downtown Hattiesburg. Festivities include one of Hattiesburg’s longest running traditions, the 47th annual Victorian Candlelit Christmas, hosted by and taking place in the historic neighborhood, along with the continuation of luminaries and other traditional activities expanded into the greater downtown district. This year’s Downtown Candlelit Christmas event will include extended holiday shopping at many retail locations and a nostalgic Victorian Christmas tree trail, with more events to be announced!
