Ignite! Global Street Food and Fire Festival

Ignite! Global Street Food and Fire Festival

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 11 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join us for international street food, dance, interactive activities—and fire!

It's time to fire things up with the sixth annual Ignite festival! To celebrate Union Square’s sizzling food landscape we bring you an evening of international eats, fire throwers, roving entertainment, and a raucous celebration of global culture!

Keep an eye out for our full list of food vendors and the performance schedule to be posted here soon!  

And don’t forget to bring a contribution to the festival’s canned food drive, benefiting the Somerville Homeless Coalition! It’s easy-- just bring a can or two of food to the festival.  

Suggested donation: $2:  You'll get a cool tiger sticker!  Or buy a tiger tee or tote to support the fest!

Rain date: Sunday, August 12 from 6-10pm.
