Mantorville Stagecoach Days, sponsored by the Mantorville Economic Development Alliance, explores the lifestyle and pastimes of Mantorville and Southeastern Minnesota from the mid-1800s until the early 1900s. Over the past three years, event planners have brought new life to this celebration with the addition of a costume contest and live music. These events, along with the tractor pull, melodrama at the Opera House, and the Mantorville Art Guild’s Stagecoach Days Art Show, truly do celebrate Mantorville’s colorful past.
