Mayor's Message

mayor nugent sqWelcome to the official Village of Manteno web site. The Village elected officials and Staff work hard to try and make information about the Village of Manteno readily available and easy for our citizens and visitors to access. Manteno is a great Community with a lot to offer and the web site is a great place to explore what is going on in the Community and to communicate with Village Officials.



Visiting Manteno

FlagsLegacypark2There is plenty to do in bustling Manteno. Spring, summer, fall or winter, there is truly an activity for everyone! Be sure to attend one of our many 'Movies in the Park' or 'Music on Main Street' events. Hit the links at Manteno Golf Course & Learning Center – an 18-hole course that will challenge even the most avid golfer. Every Thursday from May through September, the Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Farmer’s Market. They also organize the hugely popular 4-day annual Oktoberfest. With our own Splash Pad to cool off in the summer, to ice skating at our skate rink in the winter, there are many ways to use our park facilities.

With more amenities just minutes away from Manteno, you can catch our very own Chicago Bears as they prepare for their season at Olivet Nazarene University, or if you are a fan of the arts, Kankakee Valley Theatre Association showcases some of Broadway’s top productions. Cross country skiing, hiking, horseback riding or a walk along Kankakee River is just 10 minutes away at the Kankakee River State Park.

The Village boasts an historic downtown area with antique and resale shops. Dine at one of the locally owned restaurants or grab a quick bite at the numerous fast food establishments.
