COVID-19 Response:

Every Year, the committee and other members of the community look forward to bringing the Village of Mantua together by holding The Potato Festival. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee has decided to cancel the 2020 festival. We are deeply saddened that we are unable to bring a fun filled weekend to the community this year. However, we are fully committed to bring our event back for the 2021 year!

Please stayed tuned for updates about next years festival!

Since 1993

A Festival for the Community by the Community

The Mantua Potato Festival is a non-profit organization.  The festival was originally founded in 1938 but was then discontinued during World War II.  However, the Potato Festival was then re-established in 1973.  For over 45 years, members of the community have come together to bring the village this fun filled event for all ages.
