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, the Hazleton Art League, Hazleton POWER!, and several other organizations, with funding assistance and support provided by the Luzerne County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
