Where’s the Darkmoon Faire?!
As some of you may have already noticed, the Darkmoon Faire has failed to reach its destination of Azeroth. I’ll be honest, approximately 5-7 days ago, I checked the in-game calendar, and there wasn’t a date set for the Darkmoon Faire.
Typically, the Darkmoon Faire arrives every first Sunday of the month for one week; well, other than January 2022!
An update from Blizzard today, they’ve found the issue regarding the Darkmoon Faire bug and will have the event added to the calendar tomorrow (Tuesday). As I previously hinted below, Blizzard has decided to delay the opening of the Darkmoon Faire until January 9th, 2022.
What Could’ve Happened?
As I’m sure you’ll agree, the developers need their Christmas break too, and what’s possibly happened is an oversight, and the event wasn’t added to the calendar; thus, the Darkmoon Faire hasn’t been automatically triggered to start.
It’s also worth noting that there have been many changes over the last month concerning the event: Legion Timewalking (Mage Tower), the start of Winter Veil, and Burning Crusade Timewalking. It’s fair to say with the workload the developers have been under, the event could’ve been overlooked.
What Will Happen Now?
What will likely happen is once developers get back into the office (quite possibly today), they will activate the event, either starting it from today and extending an extra week or simply waiting until the following Sunday to activate it.
The worst-case scenario would be if they didn’t start it at all and just waited till next month.
Darkmoon Faire Update in the next Patch:
If you’re unaware of the latest update coming to the Darkmoon Faire in the next patch, well, we’re getting a new dancing game. Although developers didn’t hint at it, I hope this month’s issue isn’t regarding the new updates to the Darkmoon Faire.
I do recall a few years back when developers closed the Darkmoon Faire down, while they implemented changes.
I highly doubt this is the reason, but it’s worth noting.
Check for Updates!
If you’re patiently waiting on a hotfix for the Darkmoon Faire, I recommend keeping your eyes peeled on the World of Warcraft’s Twitter support channels (U.S players) (E.U players) or Wowhead and MMO Champion.
If there’s a hotfix planned to fix this issue, they’ll have a blue post that will inform you immediately!

Sadly, if you were seeking a further boost to your Timewalking reputation gains, you will miss out. Players within the E.U. region have one final day of Timewalking, and with the U.S. region finishing in a couple of hours, I’d imagine, the delay till the 9th, means Blizzard didn’t want E.U. players getting an unfair advantage; which is fair!
