Allenport is a census-designated place in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, United States. It lies southeast of Mount Union on the Juniata River in Shirley Township. The population was 648 as of the 2010 census.

Allenport is the location of the Riverview Business Center, home of manufacturing facilities for Bonney Forge, FCI (formerly Berg), and Containment Solutions (formerly Fluid Containment). Allenport is the terminus of Pennsylvania Route 103. The inactive tracks of the narrow gauge East Broad Top Railroad pass through the community. A third rail creates dual gauge tracks to just short of the PA 103 crossing. The tracks were partially rehabilitated in the mid-2000s by the Mount Union Connecting Railroad, but the rehabilitation was not completed.
