Come celebrate the 102nd anniversary of the invention of Fluff with Fluff Travels: All Roads Lead to Fluff!
See a detailed festival map here, and note the festival has been shifted to Somerville Ave & Bow St this year as opposed to being in the center of Union Square, like in past years.
Join us for the celebration of the 102nd anniversary of Fluff, invented right in Somerville’s Union Square in 1917 by Archibald Query. This madcap, fun-filled festival draws approximately 20,000 people and is cited as one of the reasons why Lonely Planet named Somerville in the top 10 “Best In The US” travel destinations for 2016.
The 14th annual What the Fluff Festival will feature musical performances, a cooking contest, Fluff-themed games, activities, antics and fun for every age, and Fluff treats of every sort.
This year’s theme—Fluff Travels: All Roads Lead to Fluff—celebrates one of the most culturally rich cities in the nation, paying homage to the many roads traveled to Union Square from all over the world. With 50+ spoken languages in its schools, Somerville is home to a mix of neighbors from El Salvador, Haiti, Portugal, Brazil, and beyond.
All roads lead to Fluff, so bike, boogie, scooter, roller skate or jetpack to Union Square as Marshmallow Fluff journeys round the world and back again with deliciously diverse food, entertainment, and family-friendly activities.
What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention is presented by Union Square Main Streets as part of the Somerville Arts Council/ArtsUnion.
