Ideal Neighborhoods

The City of Hazard hosts ideal communities that are focused on safety, opportunities, access to goods and services, positive relationships between citizens, and have common values and goals. Some of our neighborhoods have been known to throw "block" parties where neighbors come together and fellowship. This may be labeled as old fashioned by some, but is one way Eastern Kentuckians display a sense of pride and heritage by keeping family values and community togetherness at the forefront of our society.


Hazard features movie theatres, an amphitheater located beside City Hall, and The Forum located near the south end of the City limits. The Forum is a cornerstone for the arts to produce live and taped programming materials and presentations.

Soap Box Derby

//APRIL 18th// Put on by the Kiwanis Club of Hazard, the annual Soap Box Derby is a youth racing program which has run nationally since 1934. The idea of the Soap Box Derby grew out of a photographic assignment of Dayton, Ohio, newsman Myron Scott. He covered a race of boy-built cars in his home community and was so impressed with this event that he acquired a copyright for the idea and began development of a similar program on a national scale.
