Stennis Day in the Bay

November 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm CST

Stennis Day in the Bay will run from 12noon – 5pm on the grounds surrounding the Historic Hancock County Courthouse on Main Street. Local restaurants will feature special drinks and menu items and merchants will decorate their stores and offer special space related promotions to welcome visitors during this festive event.

Featured events include:

  • Interactive exhibits on space
  • Kickoff at Noon honoring our Veterans
  • A “Space Themed” BUD N BURGER Competition
  • The 90th Birthday of Apollo 13 Astronaut, Fred Haise

This event will give children of all ages and their families the opportunity to meet face to face with people who work at Stennis from NASA as well as many of their forty federal, state, academic, private, and technology-based tenants. Together they have 5,000-plus employees and if counted as a single workforce, Stennis Space Center would rank as one of the Top 10 largest businesses in the State of Mississippi.
