You read that right. What the Fluff? is an upcoming festival this Saturday, September 24th in Union Square, Somerville! The Fluff and fun-filled event takes place to honor the invention of Marshmallow Fluff and its birthplace, Union Square. Now in its 11th year, this festival draws over 12,000 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.
Join us and Union Square Main Streets for a celebration of the legend and genius Archibald Query, who invented Fluff right in Union Square in 1917. Artists, musicians, theatrical performers, culinary geniuses and the general public pay tribute to this great American creation in this zany, all-day festival. The 11th annual event features musical performances, a cooking contest, fluff-themed games, activities, antics and fun for every age, and Fluff treats of every sort. Yum!
