Join the Taste of Arlington Volunteer Team! Taste of Arlington has a long tradition of celebrating Arlington’s food scene.  Now in its 31st year, this massive street festival attracts nearly 25,000 people to Wilson Boulevard for one day of fun and food.  It takes a lot of people to put on an event of this magnitude and we need your help! Working in partnership with the Arlington Food Assistance Center, Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Arlington Arts Center, Leadership Center for Excellence, Arlington Chamber of Commerce and Volunteer Arlington; BallstonGives seeks your support to fulfill a variety of roles at the event. With the help of our amazing volunteers, BallstonGives has been able to donate $180,000 to local charities since 2012!
