Dragon Bash is a summer festival celebrating resistance against (and victories over!) the Elder Dragons. Filled with fun games and activities to remind us of that which we fight for, one can compete for a variety of prizes, from delicious candy to holographic equipment. To enjoy this festival, be sure to pick up your Invitation to Dragon Bash.pngInvitation to Dragon Bash which will teleport you straight to the celebrations in Hoelbrak!

Originally celebrated in Lion's Arch and sponsored by the Captain's Council after the victory over Zhaitan, in 2019 it moved to the norn city Hoelbrak.
