Tontitown Grape Festival is Back for the 120th Year

TONTITOWN, Ark. (KFTA) -- The 120th annual Tontitown Grape Festival will start Tuesday, August 7th. 

The festival will have live entertainment, carnival rides, games and the famous spaghetti dinners.

"The spaghetti dinners, that's a big part of what we do," said Joseph Pianalto, chairman of the event. "We serve anywhere from 2,400 to 3,000 dinners a night, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. So we feed a lot of people."  

Highway 412 runs right alongside the fair, and Pianalto said the local police department will be on hand to ensure festival goer safety. 

"We'll have the Tonitown Police Department out setting up crosswalks so people that park across the street at the park can come and go without crossing the highway," Pianalto said. 

The fair will start August 7th and will go until Saturday, August 11. For a schedule of events, click here.
