IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO MAKE A FESTIVAL A FUN FILLED SUCCESS!!
On September 24, 2016, thousands enjoyed great music, crazy antics, fluffy games, fluff filled food and just lots of fun filled activities. Many thanks to all Fluff lovers who attended, shared in the fun, and contributed to making our 11th “What the Fluff” Festival a great time!
Not only do we have a community in Union Square, we have a great, warm, generous and collaborative community. Union Square Main Streets could not carry off the production of the Festival without the invaluable support of the Somerville Arts Council, the support of so many of our city departments, our Mayor Curtatone, who presents our Cooking Contest awards, and the involvement in one or more ways of the majority of our Union Square businesses.
And, of course, this Fluff Festival would never have happened without the support of our committed and generous sponsors.
Deep thanks goes to:
