The Ballston Partnership is pleased to announce that Taste of Arlington 2010 will take place on Sunday, May 16th from noon to 5 p.m. What has become a beloved spring Arlington tradition will be back this year and bigger than ever. In addition to a wide array of Arlington’s favorite eateries, the Taste will also feature a juried arts and crafts show, children’s activities and live entertainment. Visitors can also taste wines from local Tarara Vineyards, listen to the smooth sounds of Marcus Johnson and teach their families about food safety inside the new interactive FDA Food Safety Zone. The Ballston Partnership has teamed up with the Clarendon Alliance, Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization, Rosslyn Renaissance, and the Crystal City BID to present the Taste of Arlington, a celebration of their collective communities and the largest single day event in Arlington. Proceeds from Taste of Arlington will benefit the Virginia Hospital Center and Arlington Community Foundation. The 23rd Annual Taste of Arlington celebrates community by bringing together over 40 restaurants, local talent, arts and crafts, children’s activities and an average of 12,000 people from the greater Washington, DC area.
