Festivals & Events


For the size of Venango County, it is truly amazing the number of festivals and events that grace our communities throughout the year.

Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall festivals host thousands of visitors who enjoy arts and crafts shows; outdoor concerts; car and motorcycle shows; historic building tours; antique shows; and the best in firework displays.

Whether you enjoy jazz, pop, rock, country, gospel, or bluegrass music – the festivals in Oil City, Franklin, Cranberry, Emlenton and Kennerdell have all of that and more.
