2 Valentine’s Day Pillow Fights in Bay Area

Valentine's Day Pillow Fight 2016 in San Francisco

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - 5:50 pm
Justin Herman Plaza
1 Market Street,
San Francisco, CA

Feathers will fly at this fun, flash-mob type event, which takes place annually on Valentine’s Day. It is 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.

Top Tips:
* Bring a mask or bandanna to cover your mouth – it is easy to choke on flying feathers.
* Bring a synthetic pillow (not one with feathers). Trust us... It is 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 is worth repeating… HELP CLEAN UP AFTERWARD – we cannot stress this enough so that we can continue having fun anarchy like this.

Feathers of Fury 6: Valentine's Day Pillow Fight in Downtown San Jose

Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 12 PM to 3 PM

Downtown San Jose

Since 2011, San Jose has held our own massive pillow fights, inspired by the Great Pillow Fights of San Francisco, and ever since we have joined the fun, we have had tremendous success. This City is becoming more awesome by the year. Let us continue this tradition to liven up our beloved DTSJ with fun and cheer for this Valentine's Day. So let the anticipation begin for you veteran pillow pugilists and let the curiosity start for the first-timer feather throwers.

An AIRHORN or WHISTLE or TOWER will signal the beginning of the event. We will proceed to charge a la Braveheart and let the flailing of laughter ensue. How long will it last? Well, that all depends on you.

-Tell everyone about the Pillow Fight.
-Bring a pillow
-Wait until the whistle/airhorn signal to begin.
-Soft pillows only!
-NEVER swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
