What the Fluff?

Sat Sep 21, 2019
3:00pm to 7:00pm
All ages

Now in its 14th year, “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.

This fun-filled event draws over 15,000 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 2017.

This event is a celebration of Archibald Query, who invented Fluff right in Union Square in 1917. Artists, musicians, theatrical performers, culinary geniuses and the general public pay tribute this great American creation in a zany, fun-filled festival. The event features musical performances, a cooking contest, fluff-themed games, activities, antics and fun for every age, and Fluff treats of every sort.
