Taste of Arlington


  • May 15, 2016 - Sun 12:00pm - 6:00pm


On Sunday, May 15, the Ballston Business Improvement District will host the 29th annual Taste of Arlington presented by BallstonGives and benefiting the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). This exciting and highly anticipated event transforms Wilson Boulevard and neighboring streets into a family-friendly street festival with dining, music and entertainment for all ages. This annual festival features the cuisine of more than 50 Arlington restaurants, two concert stages with live music, an expanded Beer and Wine Garden with Deschutes Brewery’s Street Pub, a 5k race benefiting Girls on the Run, BarkPark and a KidZone with a rock climbing wall and carnival games. NEW this year- the ultimate block party is coming to Taste of Arlington! Taste of Arlington has partnered with Deschutes Brewery, that is packing up its pub of epic proportions and can be found in the Beer & Wine Garden. The Deschutes Street Pub will take to the streets with its 400+ foot bar, pouring a huge selection of Deschutes Brewery beers from a multitude of taps (think everything from Fresh Squeezed IPA to The Abyss). The festival is held every year on Wilson Boulevard in front of the Ballston Common Mall, spanning several blocks stretching along Wilson Boulevard from N. Glebe Road to N. Quincy Street, along N. Stuart Street to 9th Street and Randolph Street. Parking is available all day at the Ballston Public Parking Garage adjacent to the Ballston Common Mall, as well as a number of other Ballston Garages, and the event is located two blocks from the Ballston-MU Metro station (Orange line). Tickets are now on sale and you can purchase discounted tickets prior and the day of the event via the BallstonConnect mobile app. For more information, visit or contact the Ballston BID at or 703-664-1194
