World Pillow Fighting Championships

Clockwork Gallery - World Pillow Fighting ChampionshipsWhere: Sonoma Mountain Village, Rohnert Park, California, USA USA

When: September

The World Pillow Fighting Championships competition is a precarious affair. Contestants straddle a slippery wet pole, which crosses a jolly big muddy puddle. One slip and splot! If that’s not bad enough, they then attempt to knock each other off with a dirty wet pillow. No hands are allowed to touch the pole during combat and nothing but the pillow can be used to unseat an opponent.

Plenty of fun to be had during the day, followed by a night of food, drink and dance. Just make sure to bring a change of clothes if you intend to take part in the jousting … unless you think you’re so good that you won’t get wet that is!
