Volunteer at Quarterfest

Not only is Quarterfest Ballston's biggest party, but it's also a charitable event designed to give back to the community. Proceeds from Quarterfest will benefit BallstonGives, a nonprofit that donates funding to other Arlington charities, Arlington Food Assistance Center and Arlington Street Peoples Assistance Network. Since 2012, BallstonGives has raised over $200,000 for local charities, including Animal Welfare League of Arlington, AFAC, A-SPAN, and more! 


Nearly 20,000 visitors will rock the block at Quarterfest. Such a big event requires an army of volunteers to set-up and run the best festival in Arlington. Volunteers are needed to help set-up the event, guide visitors, bartend at the street pub, and assist with clean up. We think you have what it takes, and we invite you to join us and give back!


Your hard work will not go unrewarded. As a volunteer for Quarterfest, you will receive a volunteer t-shirt to wear on the day of the festival and 2 free drink tickets. We need volunteers to help in each section of the festival in 3-4 hour shifts, starting Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.


Join us for this fun and fulfilling day that helps make our community an even better place to live, work and PLAY!
