Oil Heritage Festival

OHF

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the Annual Oil Heritage Festival, proudly hosted 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.

Volunteers from civic and social organizations help to sponsor wonderful events designed to provide fun and entertainment for people of all ages.
