Saturday, April 2nd: 6th Annual Pillow Fight NYC

6th Annual Pillow Fight NYC
Union Square, Manhattan

Pillows fly and teddies soar as you converge for a giant urban pillow fight! Swing and whack as you evade pillow-wielding assailants. Bring a soft pillow and wait for the signal. Pillow fight!

Rules: Please follow these guidelines to ensure a safe and fun pillow fight for everybody!

+ Soft, feather-free pillows only!
+ Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
+ Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
+ Remove glasses beforehand!
+ Deposit pillows in donation boxes or take them with you.
+ Pajamas welcome.


This year marks the second annual Pillows for Puppies, spearheaded by the always-amazing Jennifer Small. We are pleased to say that because of this collaboration, the NYPD is very much on our side this year!

Please volunteer for Pillows for Puppies if you can, and help leave Union Square in better shape than we found it. This is the key to being allowed to come back year after year – pitch in!

Pillow fights will take place in more than 100 other cities around the world – find more information here.
