Rhododendron FestivalMay 19-21, 2017
Talent and beauty usher in the Rhododendron Festival season with the Miss Rhododendron Pageant taking place early this year on Friday, May 12, at 6pm. A bonfire and delicious local food always get the actual Rhododendron Festival off to a great start. Enjoy an event that highlights the best of Mentone! Local musicians, cloggers, storytellers, arts of all mediums, horse drawn carriage rides, pony rides, scenic boat tours of Little River, and a "Taste of Mentone" are some of the things you can expect from this year's festival. The event is held annually during the third weekend of May.
