If you’re a fan of the Ballston area, you’ll want to spend the weekend of May 18 and 19 at Quarterfest. This annual celebration features a street pub that turns block after block of Wilson Boulevard into an outdoor watering hole. Four different bands each day will provide the soundtrack for the afternoon, and all you have to do to attend this free event is purchase drink tickets.
For even more Ballston love, purchase a wristband for Saturday’s Quarterfest Crawl. Over 80 restaurants, bars, and retailers will be on site to give you a unique taste of the area. Why quit when you’re ahead? Come back Sunday for food truck alley, another round at the street pub, and the VIP reception in the atrium of the Ballston Exchange, or get an early start and support the young women at the Girls on the Run 5K.
Quarterfest rules the streets from noon until 6 p.m., and drink tickets, wristbands, and bundles of the two are available at the Quarterfest website.
