What To Expect During The 2020 Quarterfest

Every year in May, Wilson Boulevard is transformed into a vibrant dining, shopping, and family-fun day experience for all ages… and this year is no different.

On May 16, the highly anticipated and exciting Quarterfest(once known as Taste of Arlington) will be returning to Ballston. The food, beer, and wine festival will run from 12-8 pm on Saturday(May 16). The event is free and open to the public but you’ll need a crawl passport, drink tickets, and a wristband for the restaurant crawl, street pub, and to enter the Arlington Culinary Discovery Pavilion and Beverage University.

Here’s what to expect during this year’s event:

  • Live Music- there’ll be a free outdoor concert from noon to 8 pm with local performers from every genre to keep you dancing in the streets.
  • Quarterfest Crawl -with nearly 80 restaurants in Ballston, you’ll get to explore various delicacies ranging from fresh seafood and Americana to the exotic. You’ll even get a chance to win a special prize if you get your Crawl passport full-stamped.
  • Street Pub-there’ll be 100-foot behemoth serving up craft beer, wine, and cocktails.
  • VIP Reception- this is an exclusive invitation-only affair hosted by Ballston Exchange. Take a break from the crowd and enjoy live music, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres.
