Summer in Venango County

As the first official day of summer quickly approaches, the area is already buzzing with excitement of summer fun. A shocking comment that we often hear is: “there is nothing to do here.” Even with the unexpected changes with COVID-19, there are still many opportunities to enjoy all our area has to offer this time of year.

With Be Here, our goal is to spread the word about ways to live, work, and play in our region, because many residents and visitors can be unaware of all that we have to offer. Our Play Here page is a great place to find information about things to do in our region. Here you’ll find links to:

Canoeing & Kayaking
Theater, Art & Music
Museums & Societies
Youth & Family Activities
Festival & Events

We also have a community calendar of events, which won’t be quite as busy this year, but both virtual and in-person events have been added recently. Find the calendar at

Summer is an exciting time in Venango County! The area is full of things to do, local restaurants are serving fresh food, the trails and waterways are populated, the parks and downtowns are full of beautiful landscaping, and there’s an overall positive atmosphere.

We encourage you to take advantage of all there is to do this summer, and all year long, in Venango County!
