To celebrate Union Square’s sizzling food landscape we bring you: Ignite, an evening of international eats, fire throwers, roving entertainment, and a raucous celebration of global culture!
In addition to many local food vendors, there will be: food demos, including a presentation from the Nibble Kitchen; food-themed activities, featuring a flaming curry eating contest (ongoing, with a sit-down curry speed eating contest at 7:30); numerous performers, and to top it all off, salsa dance instruction directly followed by a festival-wide dance party to close out the night!
Please don’t forget to B.Y.O.W.B (bring your own water bottle), as the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be bringing their Quench Buggy to Ignite! You will be able to fill up your water bottle as many times as you want at the Quench Buggy, which will be located at the heart of the festival.
