Pillow Fight 2016 | San Francisco

Justin Herman Plaza | 1 Market Street, San Francisco, CA

Pillow Fight 2016 | San FranciscoFeathers will fly at this fun, flash-mob type event which takes place annually on Valentine’s Day. It’s Pillow Fight.

In the past, nearly 1,000 San Franciscans descended on Justin Herman Plaza with feather-stuffed pillows to run Braveheart-like at full speed at one another to lovingly beat the crap out of each other until the whistle blows.

Will There Be a Pillow Fight This Year? This is a decentralized unofficial (and unpermitted) event, so attend at your own risk of being disappointed. But if 1,000 people head down to Justin Herman Plaza with pillows and THINK there’s going to be a pillow fight… then there’s probably going to be a motherf*cking pillow fight even if there’s no one “in charge.” Check out the Pillow Fight Facebook page for any 2016 details.

2016 Pillow Fight
February 14, 2016 | 5:50 pm (typically everything begins around 6pm)
Justin Herman Plaza, SF

Top Tips:

  • Bring a mask or bandanna to cover your mouth – it’s easy to choke on flying feathers.
  • Bring a synthetic pillow (not one with feathers). Trust us.. it’s much more enjoyable this way.
  • Bring a garbage bag – have fun and then help clean up afterward – the price of having fun is keeping your city clean and makes it much less likely for the fuzz to shut this thing down.
  • Build up your arm strength – your arms will be sore after this… trust us.
  • It’s worth repeating… HELP CLEAN UP AFTERWARD – we can’t stress this enough so that we can continue having fun anarchy like this.
