Holiday events are game world events strongly associated with real world holidays like Halloween or Christmas. Many of these events have their own lore within the Guild Wars universe, and many have been observed ever since the first Guild Wars series.

These events are not to be confused with the dynamic event game mechanic.

List of holiday events[edit]

Lunar New Year[edit]

Lunar New Year is an event celebrating the Canthan new year and is held in the Crown Pavilion in Divinity's Reach.


Generally observed during last weeks of October, Halloween in Tyria has long been a celebration of the temporary return of Mad King Thorn, a former king of Kryta.

Whether by the actions of Magister Tassi or some other force, the seal on Bloody Prince Thorn has broken, allowing him to seek vengence on his father, Mad King Thorn, for past transgressions including, but not limited to, beheading his mother, locking him in a box with a mouthful of candy corn and leaving him to starve, and writing his name out of history.


The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.
