The Mentone Area Preservation Association
MAPA was founded in 1982 with the mission of preserving and protecting the heritage, natural environment and other unique qualities of life in the Mentone area!
MAPA presents two annual festivals in Mentone which feature hand-made arts and crafts, live entertainment, and delicious food. Both festivals are celebrations of our community and the natural beauty that surrounds us. We invite you to come up to the mountain and celebrate with us!
The Rhododendron Festival is held annually on the 3rd weekend of May.
Colorfest is held annually on the 3rd weekend in October.
