Ballston A&C Market This Saturday!

Hey everyone! We just wanted to remind you that the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market's Opening Day is THIS Saturday!

Returning to Welburn Square on May 8, from 10:00am to 4:00pm, the market welcomes returning favorites and new artists alike. Experience local art at its best with handcrafted silver jewelry by bLuGrn design, demented decoupage by BoxBoy, upscale photography by Steven L. Miller Words & Images, cheeky plushes by Grumpy Haters, designer tees by Sharp Shirter and so much more.

Plus, we will also have an extra-special guest visiting the market this month. Arlington’s own, Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, will be on hand with information and an artist raffle to benefit their charitable organization.

Opening Day will also feature:

  • Live music Lynn Veronneau Trio (noon – 2:00)
  • FREE water bottles courtesy of
  • FREE goodie bags full of healthy eats and coupons courtesy of Curves of Cherrydale (for the first 50 guests)
  • FREE demos by select artists

Conveniently located between North Stuart and North 9th Streets, across from the Ballston Metro, the Ballston Arts & Crafts Market is Arlington’s only 100% handmade market. Take the kids, the family and your out-of-town guests to the Square. And, grab some lunch while you’re there!
