Hattiesburg Craft Beer Fest moving outdoors to Town Square Park

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Craft Beer Festival is moving a short distance from the downtown Train Depot to Town Square Park for its fifth annual event.

More than 30 brewers and 1,000 people are expected to attend.

It will talk place from 5-8 p.m. on Saturday.

It will also have food and live entertainment.

"The crowds keep getting bigger, which is a fantastic problem to have so we felt like moving it to the park this year was just a great opportunity for us to continue it outside and continue to grow it," said Andrea Saffle, executive director of the Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association.  

"Locals enjoy it, but we also expect a lot of people to come, hundreds in fact, from surrounding communities, and also from adjacent states," said Marlo Dorsey, director of marketing and communications for ‎Visit Hattiesburg and the Hattiesburg Convention Commission
