Tontitown is a city in Washington County, Arkansas. The community is located in the Ozark Mountains and was founded by Italian settlers in 1898. Famous for its grapes and wines, Tontitown has hosted the Tontitown Grape Festival continuously since 1898. No longer reliant upon an agricultural economy, today the community relies on its proximity to the growing Northwest Arkansas metropolitan area, serving as a bedroom community for larger neighbors Fayetteville and Springdale. Although able to retain its Italian American heritage, Tontitown has seen rapid growth in recent years as indicated by a 160% growth in population between the 2000 and 2010 censuses.[1]
