Blizzard go over all the holidays (both micro and macro), bonus events, and more. This month we have the ending of the Lunar Festival, more Darkmoon Faire as usual, Love is in the Air and the Hatching of the Hippogriffs micro holiday. Let's hope that one doesn't get cancelled like the Tavern Crawl!

Love Is in the Air this month and there’s much to see and do. In this February edition of This Month in WoW, we look forward to some of the great in-game events and the ongoing development of Patch 7.2: The Tomb of Sargeras.

Holidays and Events

  • Lunar Festival [January 21- February 4]
    Every year the druids of Moonglade hold a celebration of their city’s great triumph over an ancient evil. During the Lunar Festival, citizens of Azeroth have the opportunity to honor their elders by celebrating their sage wisdom, sharing in magnificent feasts–and of course– launching fireworks!
  • Darkmoon Faire [February 5- February 11]
    The Darkmoon Faire is open for business once more! Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and the nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth… and beyond!
  • Love Is in the Air [February 7 – February 21]
    Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Many guards and townsfolk spend their days exchanging gifts to other amorous citizens. But something's suspecious about this sudden outpouring of affection...

Micro-Holidays

  • Hatching of the Hippogryphs [February 23]
    This is the day that the Frayfeather Hippogryphs hatch. Head to Frayfeather Highlands in Feralas to witness the spectacle firsthand!
