When was the last time you were involved in a pillow fight? This weekend, join hundreds of others in the annual Vancouver Pillow Fight taking place on Saturday, April 6th near the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Although the forecast is calling for rain, there’s nothing that will quell this annual event that has increased in popularity year after year!

To take part in the event, head to the VAG for a 3:00 pm fight time. Make sure to hide your pillows. When the clock strikes 3:00 and the battle cry of “PILLOW FIGHT!!!” is heard, run in and prepare for a (lighthearted) battle, swinging left and right with your weapon of choice (foam or feathers).

If the idea of getting smacked in the head by a soggy pillow doesn’t give you the greatest joy, you can also be an observer. There are some great photo opportunities that come from the event. Stand back from the action and snap a few shots.

But, the main fun is really participating. But, there are a few rules of course:

  1. Soft pillows only!
  2. Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
  3. Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
  4. Remove glasses beforehand!
  5. The event is free and appropriate for all ages.Wait until the signal to begin.
  6. Remember: This event is more fun with feathers!
