Downtown Mantua Revitalization

Mantua Revitalization, DMRC, is celebrating their 10th Anniversary this year. We operate with one major function—to promote and revitalize the Village of Mantua to become a village where people want to live and visit.

We hope you will join us at one of our sponsored events like Art on the Hill in July, the Reverse Raffle in April, Quilts in the Village in May this year. Our annual Photo Contest Winner Calendar goes on sale in the fall.

Each year Downtown Mantua Revitalization hosts the award winning “Art on the Hill & Wine Tasting”, a day-long celebration of the arts. Named the “2014 Best Arts and Cultural Event in Portage County”, this street festival boasts over 80 artisans selling and displaying their handmade works of art as well as a “Merchant Circle”, great food, a Chinese auction of art and local prizes, and a popular photo contest, as well as wine tasting by four local wineries.

A popular event at Art on the Hill and Wine Tasting festival is our Annual Photo Contest. Every year photographers from every age group enter their favorite photographs to be displayed at the festival. We give prizes, too—Best in each category and from each age group, plus a People’s Choice award. Winners are chosen through a vote from anyone attending the festival by submitting a ballot for their favorite picture.
