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

"We feel this decision must be made in order to protect the safety of both our volunteers and attendees," festival organizers said in a Wednesday news release. "It is with very heavy hearts this decision was made."

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.
