Tired of the crush and grind of the Big City? Want to get out of the traffic and into the country? But afraid you’ll miss out on the cultural life of the Big City? Tontitown has a low population density, but is rich in events. We’ve got the Grape Festival, one of the country’s oldest community festivals; we’ve got the Tontitown Historical Museum, an educational experience for young and old alike. And there’s more! With the Walton Arts Center and the Jones Family Center in the nearby cities of Fayetteville and Springdale, there’s always something to do in and around Tontitown.
Every August since 1899, the Tontitown Grape Festival, sponsored by St. Joseph's Church, has been the scene of fun for folks of all ages. One of the biggest festivals in Northwest Arkansas, the Grape Festival draws people from all over the United States and beyond.
