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 49 years, members of the community have come together to bring the village this fun-filled event for all ages.
