Get a Taste of Arlington

Message from

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic becomes a growing concern, the health and well-being of our community is the top priority of the Ballston BID & BallstonGives.

It is for this most important reason that we have made the difficult decision to cancel Quarterfest this year, which was scheduled for Saturday, May 16th.

Enjoy a food, beer and wine festival showcasing the diversity of Arlington’s food scene as Taste of Arlington takes the block party to the next level and becomes Quarterfest on May 16, 2020.

This exciting and highly-anticipated festival transforms Wilson Boulevard into a vibrant dining, shopping and family-fun two-day experience for all ages. Join a restaurant crawl showcasing delicious eateries of the Ballston neighborhood and dance to an outdoor concert beside the pop-up street pub. Sip, sample, shop and savor all weekend, on Wilson Boulevard between North Taylor and North Randolph Streets.

The festival is free and open to the public, but you will need a wristband to join the Quarterfest Restaurant Crawl, and drink tickets for the pop-up street pub.
