Geotour events

Get ready for an exciting weekend as we celebrate the launch of Hattiesburg GeoTour!

Hattiesburg Geotour Launch Party

Join VisitHATTIESBURG as we launch Mississippi’s first official GeoTour on Friday, Dec. 9, 2022. We’re kicking off the weekend full of celebrations with a come-and-go event at local favorite – T-Bones Records & Café. Be there at 4PM to win prizes and hear from some of the partners who have made this project possible. The first 50 guests will receive a special gift. T-Bones is sweetening the deal, too! All registered geocaching users (must show profile) will receive a complimentary coffee and dessert.

At 5:30PM, the Hattiesburg GeoTour will officially launch and cachers may begin their hunt! We will have passports on hand to give out, or you can download yours from HBURGGeoTour.com. You’ll want to keep up with this so you can complete it and redeem it for an official Hattiesburg GeoTour coin later in the weekend.
