What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the invention of marshmallow fluff at the 12th annual “What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention” Festival.  Archibald Query concocted the beloved gooey spread right in Somerville’s Union Square. This milestone is celebrated each year with musical performances, a cooking contest, fun for every age and Fluff treats of every sort.

Senior political reporter Anthony Brooks will serve as a judge during the fluff cooking contest, which challenges culinary innovators to produce delicious Fluff filled recipes. Contestants will vie for the titles of Best Future Chef, Most Retro Recipe, Most Inventive Recipe, and Grand Prize: Centennial Winner.  Registration for the cooking contest is now open.

This festival is free and open to the public. Click here for more information and to enter the contest.
