On Saturday, April 1, 2023, Volume One will revive its citywide April Fools’ Day Pillow Fight in downtown Eau Claire, WI after a short hiatus. It’s “Five Minutes of Feathery Fury” – a short but lively celebration of foolishness where the feathers fly in a five-minute pillow fight with the entire city invited.

Pillow Fight Details

  • Show up in the Oxbow Hotel’s courtyard (a little early) with a nice, fluffy pillow.
  • Participants are welcome to wear crazy costumes or padding for the battle. They just might be rewarded for their efforts, as Volume One is giving out prizes for Best Team Costume, Best Individual Costumes, Best Pillow Case, and more.
  • After a few announcements, at precisely 1pm, a whistle will blow. That’s the signal to start a-swinging (or people can just come to watch the fun, and many do).
  • So grab a pillow, some friends, and get ready for some soft, feathery combat!
