— Official website

Festival of the Four Winds 2018 is a summer festival, released on July 24, 2018 until August 14, 2018.

Queen Jennah brought back The Crown Pavilion and Queen's Gauntlet with new dangers and fighters to challenge. The Labyrinthine Cliffs, along with its inhabitants the Zephyrites, are now again accessible, still recuperating and rebuilding from the loss of the Zephyr Sanctum, with the joint help from Captain Ellen Kiel and Captain Evon Gnashblade, and of course many traders and visitors from all over Central Tyria, Heart of Maguuma and Crystal Desert as well. The festivities are easily accessible with help from Lionguard Aircrews and their Hot Air Balloons in each major city.

The Festival of the Four Winds Returns!

On behalf of Queen Jennah of Kryta and the Captain's Council of Lion's Arch, you are cordially invited to participate in the return of the Festival of the Four Winds!

High atop the Labyrinthine Cliffs, our Zephyrite friends have been working in tandem with Lion's Arch to host an incredible variety of fun vendors and events to entertain visitors from all across Tyria. This celebration of unity and peace between our cultures is more important than ever before, and we hope that you will join us in the festivities.

In this spirit of cooperation, Queen Jennah has personally overseen the reopening of the Crown Pavilion, featuring a variety of challenges both new and old for Tyria's finest to test their mettle!

Transportation to the festivities couldn't be easier! Special hot air balloons are now stationed in each nation's capital city. Visitors can also sail directly by ship from Lion's Arch.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival!
