The free event is set to happen this Saturday (May 21) from noon to 8 p.m. It’s set to follow a similar format as last year, with the crawl aspect allowing attendees to spread out across the neighborhood. A number of the local restaurants are also hosting live music and specials all day.

The lineup for the main event hub:
- 12-7 p.m. DJ Ricky
- 12:30-1 p.m. Official Event Kickoff
- 1-4 p.m. Encanto Sisters
- 3-5 p.m. Intern John and the HOT 99.5 Street Team

There will also be performances at various neighborhood businesses :

- 2:30-4 p.m. Kara and Matty D. at Ballston Local
- 4-5:30 p.m. The Crista Trio at SER

“We are thrilled to celebrate our neighborhood and some of our finest restaurants with live music, great food and the community we know and love here in Ballston,” Ballston BID CEO Tina Leone said in a press release. “This event is the unofficial kickoff to summer and a lively celebration for our community and our neighbors.”
There won’t be any Ballston Quarterfest related road closures, organizers and the Arlington County Police Department confirmed to ARLnow.
“The crawl is organized in an easily-walkable path from Ballston Quarter to our pop-up concerts and back,” an event spokesperson says.
That path follows Wilson Blvd and, then, up N. Glebe Road, according to the provided map.
