The Jester's Festival tent

The Jester's Festival is a holiday event that typically takes place in the month of March and April. During this event players can obtain a 100% XP buff and the opportunity to acquire a collection of Jester-themed items. The festival also has a special quest associated with it, named The Jester's Festival, which repeats every year. A notable feature of the event is the inclusion of Jester's Festival Boxes — special reward containers that grant players various event-themed items.

For background information on the festival, see the lore page.
