Ready to relive the golden years of your youth?

Each year, thousands of Gothamites flock to one of New York’s finest NYC parks with their feather-less weapons in-hand for swinging, whacking and evading fellow pillow-wielding assailants. Don’t miss one of the best NYC events in April!

What is the Pillow Fight NYC?

Forget all your stress and adult worries as you (softly) pummel strangers at New York’s annual International Pillow Fight. This flash mob—which has attracted over 5,000 participants in recent years—turns a portion of New York into the city’s bedroom. The only rules are to not hit hard, avoid smashing cameras and leave weapons of the feather variety at home (down pillows create a mess). According to the Facebook page, this year’s event is presented by Bunz.com.

Where is the Pillow Fight NYC?

The location for the Pillow Fight NYC is Washington Square Park, but you’re encouraged to start your own pillow fight with your roommate, neighbors, etc. Check daysoftheyear.com for updates.
