This year’s World Pillow Fight Championships fill the Sonoma Mountain Village recreational fields with mud and flying pillow fluff from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 27—capped by a fight between WWE star Tyler Reks and pro wrestler Brian Cage. To break up the action, a trio of bands takes the stage: teen pop-punk quartet Heroes Turn Human, genre-liquefying jammers Pacific Haze, and the country-rocking Shannon Rider Band. Tickets are $5 for kids ages 6–12 and free for younger tots—all of whom are welcome in a kids’ zone complete with a climbing wall and bounce house.

About World Pillow Fight Championships
Two fighters precariously face each other astride a 30-foot pole, each aiming to cast the other down into a pit of soupy mud. From afar, it might be some kind of ancient form of gladiatorial combat—until you see the weapons in their hands. The big, fluffy, potentially polka-dotted weapons.
At the World Pillow Fight Championships, a sleepover staple becomes an extreme sport that's as fun to watch as it is to play. The contest started 40 years ago, as a part of the small town of Kenwood's Fourth of July celebration. Back then, it was casual fun in a muddy creekbed; today, it's a massive event with celebrity contestants, live music, and official rules. Contestants must, for example, swing every 30 seconds or be thrown out, just like guests at any party with a piñata.
