Mentone Rhododendron Festival

Savor North Alabama's Spring beauty and enjoy arts and crafts, food, live music and more! Mentone’s Rhododendron Festival is held in May each year when the spectacular clusters of showy blooms can be seen all over the town. The plants are typically at their peak around the third weekend in May, and the best place to view the blooms is around the lake on Little River above DeSoto Falls as well as around the mountaintop town. On Saturday and Sunday, Brow Park will be filled with over 70 artists and craftsmen offering their handmade creations and “Taste of Mentone” participants will have their staple dishes and new creations for festivalgoers to taste.
