The City of Mentor hosts a number of events each year to encourage social interaction and bind our community. Most of these events are free to the public and made possible through corporate sponsorship and the generosity of local businesses.
2017 was a banner year for Mentor events; especially with the unveiling of the state-of-the-art Mentor Civic Amphitheater. We can’t wait for 2018!
Mentor events are well-managed, well-covered by local media, and most importantly, well-attended with over 100,000 guests each year. Major events include:
- Mentor Rocks is Northeast Ohio’s Premier Free Summer Concert Series
- Headlands BeachFest is the Ultimate Beach Party with family-friendly activities, music, entertainment, sand sculptures, kite demonstrations and more
- Mentor CityFest offers two days of entertainment, food, activities and fun
- Mentor Cruise-In attracts 800 classic cars to Civic Center Park
- Mentor OnTap & Uncorked showcases the best beers & wines that Ohio has to offer
- NEW – Mentor Cultural Arts Series offers opera, theater, classical performances and spoken word
In addition, over 25 minor events draw folks of all ages and interests from across the area.
You’ve attended the events. You’ve seen the media coverage. We hope this year, you’ll be a part of it.
