The Rhythm Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce its 9th Annual Historic Mobile Street Renaissance Festival in celebration of heritage and culture in the Mobile Street community.

Since the first festival, the Mobile Street area has seen new life in the form of greater interest in its development as a business and entertainment district.  The historic McBride Café is now fully operational as Mac’s Place, and the location of a Technology Center and Mobile Street Festival office is in a building at the corner of 6th and Mobile Streets.  The building will not only houses the festival office, but also serves as the location of the Mobile Street Police Precinct.

This active movement to restore and redevelop the entire area is made possible by your continuing support of the Historic Mobile Street Renaissance Festival.

The festival committee is delighted to announce that this year’s event will continue to cover three days.  Accordingly, an expansive advertising effort will be waged to attract potential festival attendees in the southeastern region of the United States.

Once again, the Festival will provide a little for everybody.  Highlights of the Festival include:

Gospel Music Stage

Hub City Future Champs Boxing Event

Art Show

Youth Music Stage

Hop Show

The 9th Annual Historic Mobile Street Renaissance Festival will provide an extraordinary opportunity to share the life and heritage of the Mobile Street area of Downtown Hattiesburg and to further establish the Festival and Mobile Street as a destination place for blues and gospel music lovers all over.  We invite corporate and individual donors to join The Rhythm Heritage Foundation, the Mobile Bouie Neighborhood Association and the City of Hattiesburg in supporting this unparalleled three-day event.  Over 10,000 festival attendees from the region, the nation, and the world are expected to join us as we celebrate the survival of this community and explore the derivative music, art, history, and culture associated with Mobile Street.

Supporting the Historic Mobile Street Renaissance Festival reflects your commitment to those things that matter most in the human experience:  good health, history, art, survival, good food, great music, growth and development.
