It's a Marshmallow world in Union Square! Archibald Query invented Fluff right here in 1917 so we're hosting a madcap festival on Saturday, September 29 from 4 pm to 7 pm on Union Square Plaza.

Raindate is Sunday, September 30. The event is free.

Join musical and theatrical performers, inventors, and humorists as we pay yummy homage to this great American foodstuff. This event is presented by the Somerville Arts Council's ArtsUnion and produced by Union Square Main Streets.

You can join the festivities by mixing a gooey concoction for the cooking contest. Bring your best batch of fluffy goodness at 4 pm to register. You could win the grand prize -- a tour of the Durkee Mower Fluff factory, a unique trophy and other special prizes.

While the judges taste and evaluate, kick up your heels to the music of Adriel Azure and his Dream Indigo Orchestra, B for Brontosaurus and Thunderpants Johnson's Hillbilly Orchestra. Be mesmermized by the talents of Thru the Keyhole cuties performing as The Flufferettes.

Or take part in Fluff-inspired silliness from the main stage or in our sideshow. MC Myq Kaplan will oversee the races for the Fluff Lick- Off and Blind Man's Fluff. Try your hand at Fluff Bowling. Take your chances in a game of Fluff Roulette at the hands of "The Tuna Fluffer." Win tickets for excellent prizes large and small, silly and sensational.

Of course we'll have fluffernutters and rice krispie treats as well as Fluffy Chocolate ice cream created special for the event by Toscanini's. We whip up the festivities even further with special Fluff stuff for sale too.

Stick around after the festival to whet your whistle with a "Fluffachino" at PAs Lounge, a "Coney Island Men's Room" at The Independent or a coffee at Sherman Cafe. Maybe linger for dinner at one of our excellent ethnic restaurants.

Union Square is where Washington St, Somerville Avenue and Prospect Street meet in Somerville. Take your bike or walk. If you need to drive, there will be parking at the Argenziano School on Washington St.
