Fluff Festival 2023

Fluff Festival 2023 is OFFICIALLY ON!

What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Innovation, a festival honoring the invention of Marshmallow Fluff, returns to the Square in all its zany glory for its 18th year. It celebrates Somerville’s proud tradition of innovation with live music, fluffalicious feasts, sticky games, and much more happening Saturday, September 23 from 3:00 -7:00 PM in Union Square (rain date Sunday, September 24). This year’s theme will be “Fluff Union: The Sweetest Square in Somerville”

Union Square Main Streets, the producer of the Festival, invites proposals for the most flufftastic design to be used on promotional items, all social media, and all collateral materials. In order to find the most creative, fun, and funky design that celebrates the spirit of innovation in Union Square and this year’s theme in a compelling way, the organizing team is soliciting submissions far and wide.

The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2023, at 11:59 PM. Please email your submission to Jessica Eshleman at with “Fluff Festival Design Application” and your name in the subject line.
