If you like bonus challenges and rewards, you will like Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023. Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023 sends Fortnite players to the beautiful and action-packed Lantern Fest Tour Island. Are you ready for Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023?

Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023: Start and end dates

The annual Fortnite Lantern Fest is back again in 2023. This ode to the traditional Lantern Festival is scheduled to run for about a month, from March 22, 2023, to April 21, 2023.

Lantern Fest 2023 follows up Fortnite Lantern Fest 2022.

Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023 revolves largely around Lantern Fest Tour Island. Lantern Fest Tour Island is a massive Fortnite Creative island.  Lantern Fest Tour Island is a sprawling resort with palm trees, camels, lanterns, a desert, and skyscrapers.

Lantern Fest Tour Island is so large that Epic Games doesn't plan to release Part 2 of the island until April 6, 2023. So, until then, Fortnite players are restricted to just the foundational section of Lantern Fest Tour Island.

When Lantern Fest Tour Island goes live, players can access the island via the Fortnite Discover tab.

Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023: Challenges

Lantern Fest Tour Island features a slew of challenges for visitors to partake in and complete. Part 1 of Lantern Tour Fest includes the following challenges:

  • Sand is Lava Parkour
  • Race Rumble
  • Flawless Fashion

Epic Games claims that these three Lantern Fest 2023 Challenges are just a brief snippet of what's available too! Unfortunately, details relating to the remaining Lantern Fest 2023 Challenges and what they entail remain slim. We'll have to wait until Lantern Fest Tour Island releases to learn what other quests this special island has for us.

Speaking of additional challenges, Part 2 of Lantern Fest Tour Island will bring even more quests and places to discover when it goes live on April 6, 2023.

  • Lantern Spray
  • Cameo Needs Loot Emoticon
  • Dog Eat Dog Spray
  • Twilight Mosaic Wrap

A couple of these rewards, like the Cameo Needs Loot Emoticon and the Dog Eat Dog Spray, are known for how rare and exclusive they are, so you won't want to miss the unique opportunity to grab these Fortnite items!

Since Part 2 of Lantern Fest Tour Island will introduce new challenges later on, there may be even more Lantern Fest 2023-themed rewards to come.

That wraps up all the key details of Fortnite Lantern Fest 2023. Enjoy this month-long Fortnite event up until April 21, 2023!
