Oil Festival 2014

Every August Titusville celebrates its role as the birthplace of the commercial oil industry with the Oil Festival. Arts and entertainment, food and craft vendors, live music, beer and wine festivals, a parade, kids' activities, fireworks and more fill Friday evening and Saturday with fun for the whole family. Come enjoy the small town charm of this special event. This year's theme is Mardi Gras. Grab a mask, throw on some beads, enjoy the jazz and "laissez le bon temps rouler!" Let the good times roll!
