Fluff Festival Basics

Save the date! The 10th annual Fluff Festival will take place Saturday, September 26, 2015 (raindate Sunday, September 27)  from 3 pm to 7 pm in Union Square, Somerville, MA

Named by the Boston Phoenix as one of the top ten things to do in Boston, and now in its tenth year, What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention is a madcap festival honoring the invention of Marshmallow Fluff.

Join us for a celebration of the genius of Archibald Query who invented Fluff here in Union Square in 1917. Artists, musical and theatrical performers, culinary geniuses and the general public pay tribute this great American creation in a madcap festival. The tenth annual event includes a performance stage and games stage, participatory activities, gallery show, and craft and food vendors. This year’s theme is Fluff X, a celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Fluff Festival, Xtreme activities, and the celebration of Union Square as the crossroads of Somerville.
