Free live music from local performers is planned at a stage next to the street pub for both days.
Other activities around the festival include a “Kids Zone” on Saturday, with face painting and balloon artist, and the Arlington Art Truck, with an interactive art display on Sunday.
The event will take place mainly along Wilson Blvd — like Taste of Arlington — but will be more focused around the new Ballston Quarter mall and Ballston businesses, whereas “Taste” featured restaurants from around the county.
Like Taste of Arlington, the event will come with a series of road closures. Per Arlington County Police:
- Wilson Blvd will be closed between N. Randolph Street and Glebe Road in both directions the entire weekend (use Fairfax Drive as an alternate route)
- N. Taylor Street will be closed at Wilson Blvd
- N. Stuart Street, from 9th Street N. to Wilson Blvd, will be closed
- 7th Street N., between Glebe Road and Wilson Blvd, will be closed
Temporary “no parking” signs are also planned throughout the area, and illegally parked vehicles could be ticketed or towed. Police encourage attendees to use the Metro or other means to get to the festival.
