Throwback Thursday: What the Fluff Festival in Somerville, Ma

Posted by Nick Pizzolato on Thu, Sep 24, 2015 @ 01:00 PM

The start of fall means the days begin to get shorter, the nights become a little cooler, and it’s time for the Annual What the Fluff Festival to take place in Somerville, Massachusetts. For the last ten years, What the Fluff has celebrated the sugary marshmallow condiment that was invented in Somerville in 1917 by Archibald Query. The festival is completely unique and an incredibly fun experience. As you can see from this 2013 photo, it can get pretty crowded in Union Square.

Chefs can submit their best Fluff treats to be judged in cooking challenges too.
