Oil Heritage Festival

July 21, 2022 - July 24, 2022

The Annual Oil Heritage Festival is proudly sponsored by the Venango Area Chamber of Commerce. The festival honors the area’s rich heritage that resulted from the discovery of petroleum and the “oil boom” that occurred along Oil Creek in the mid-1800s. In that oil fueled the Industrial Revolution and the modernization of America’s transportation industry, our region is frequently referred to as “the valley that changed the world.”

The Annual Oil Heritage Festival, held on the 4th weekend of July each year, depicts our distinctive heritage by incorporating many heritage related events into one of Western Pennsylvania’s major festivals … a fun-filled festival draws thousands of visitors and guests to the region each year.

The 44th Annual Oil Heritage Festival offers something for people of all ages, and features community, heritage, sporting and children’s events. Volunteers from civic and social organizations help to sponsor wonderful events designed to provide fun and entertainment for people of all ages.
