The 122nd Tontitown Grape Festival has been cancelled due to concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Preparation for the event takes place months in advance, the release said. Organizers waited until the last moment to make the decision.
The event was originally scheduled to take place August 4-8, according to the release.
