Known as the "Gateway to Oil Country," Emlenton is located northwestern Pennsylvania in the southern portion of Venango County
. Emlenton's first oil well was drilled in 1867, after "black gold fever" gripped the countryside.
Several community events held throughout the year draw visitors from all around. The Kennerdell Art & Music Festival is held annually in August and features paintings and a symphony concert. Old Fashioned Christmas in Oil Country features the Festival of Trees, Victorian street decorations, and much more.
