The Marshmallow Fluff Festival Near Boston, MA


Fluff Fest 2010 baby!

What IS the Fluff Fest in Union Square, Boston, MA?

The first thing you should know about the annual “What the Fluff” Marshmallow Fluff Festival of Somerville, Massachusetts is that it is delicious. You will gain five to ten pounds between 3 pm and 7 pm.

The second thing you should know is that the Fluff Fest is freaking hilarious. And the third thing you should know is that it is jam-packed with fluff-themed… burlesque dancers. They wear fishnet stockings and fluffy bunny tails.

“I hope you have fun at the Fluff Fest!” texted my friend.

“Amy,” I replied, “it is literally impossible to NOT have fun at ‘What the Fluff.'”

Marshmallow Fluff was invented in Union Square, Somerville (one of my favorite Boston-area haunts) a bunch of years ago. In 2006, some brilliant folks decided to celebrate this feat with an annual street party. Let us all praise heaven that genius of this caliber exists on Earth!

But don’t just take my word for it… Examine the photographic evidence:

The food at the festival looks delicious even though some is just plain disgusting. Is this an annual festival or something? Also when is this event?

I didn't know fluff was invented is Somerville! Next time, my brother and I will have to go. He's an insane fluff enthusiast.

In my 13 years of living in Boston, I have never heard of a Fluff festival. It looks interesting and unique.
