The eighth annual MidTown Mingle will take place in Dinglewood Park next week on Thrill Hill. Midtown, Inc. is the beneficiary of the event, and funds raised will go to support their work sustaining and enhancing the neighborhoods and businesses within MidTown Columbus.

MidTown is an area in Columbus that is composed of 24 distinctive neighborhoods - including 6 National Register Historic Districts.

Historically, the Mingle has encouraged guests to move about MidTown and familiarize themselves with the area. Dinglewood Park, the site of Thrill Hill, is among the many popular landmarks that make MidTown the gem that it is in our community.

A Thrill Hill Mingle is being co-chaired this year by Sara Varner and Caroline Fields, both residents of MidTown. They are supported by numerous volunteers, and have recruited some of the top artists in MidTown to showcase this year.

The poster and invitation for every Mingle is traditionally designed by MidTown artists. This years's image is an original work created for Mingle 2018 by MidTown artist, Julianne David, and will be auctioned off at the event. Graphic designer Cam Addison designed the invitation this year, and was the designer for the original Mingle logo in 2011.
