May 19 & 20
Rhododendron Festival 2018
Enjoy an event that highlights the best of Mentone!
Talent and beauty usher in the Rhododendron Festival season with the Miss Rhododendron Pageant, slated for Friday, May 19, at 6pm.
A bonfire and delicious local food always get the actual Rhododendron Festival off to a great start. 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.
