​Downtown Hazleton is on the Rise! 

The Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress is sponsoring a contest for the creation of a new logo for Downtown Hazleton (this is separate from our organization logo). 

The message we want to convey is that Downtown Hazleton is making a comeback by reinventing itself as a multicultural/multiethnic destination for business, entrepreneurship, food, and cultural experiences. And it is doing so with an attitude that embraces partnerships, diversity, education, innovation, and change. The tagline for the logo is: Downtown Hazleton On the Rise! An alternative to this is: Downtown Hazleton On the Rise, Together! In either case, “together” should be implied in the logo design.

The winner will receive a $250 Visa Gift Card, bragging rights, and use of the winning design as the official logo for Downtown Hazleton.

Every First Friday of the month downtown Hazleton is energized with special events and merchant promotions. These typically include featured art exhibitions, theatrical performances, walking tours, live music, and other special events like the seasonal Farmer’s Market and the Chamber’s Car Cruise. First Fridays are a partnership between the Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress, the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce, and Hazleton POWER!, with funding assistance and support provided by the Luzerne County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
