A cultural gem.

Arkansas's rich cultural heritage includes the Italian settlement of Tontitown. Located near Springdale in Washington County Tonitown is a place where  Italian flavor is still strong. Several descendants of the founding Italian families still populate the community and community is a serious subject here.

For over 100 years an annual Grape Festival has been drawing visitors to this northwest corner of Arkansas for a celebration of all things Italian, now with a slight Arkansas accent. You'll be impressed with the grapes and particularly with the amazing supply of homemade pasta for you to enjoy on the spot and in some cases to take home for future use.

So come on down, or up, or over. Enjoy some Italian culture in Tontitown.

Grape Festival - Tontitown, Arkansas

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. ...

Charles, it sounds so yummy!  I love fair like this.  We have many Italian families in Marion also, but they don't have anything like that.  But there is a Italian Festival in Memphis, Tn. every first weekend of June.  They attract thousands of visitors every year.
