What is the Fluff Festival?
This 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. With 50+ spoken languages in its schools, Somerville is home to a mix of neighbors from El Salvador, Haiti, Portugal, Brazil, and beyond.

Craft vendors are strongly encouraged to present handmade products that relate to this year’s theme and have a Fluff component.
Food vendors are strongly encouraged to present food products that use Marshmallow Fluff as an ingredient. All food products must be prepared in a licensed kitchen.
