This weekend Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is going to have its very first Fan Festival. The festival is scheduled for August 31 to September 1 at the White River State Park in Indianapolis. Making this festival even more exciting is that dragons are going to make their very first appearance in the game.

Dragons Arriving

While the dragons are indeed a treat, the experience in not limited to those attending the festival in Indiana. For players around the world, they can unlock new content in their area through the use of special Portkeys that lead to Dragon Eggs. Once each region unlocks enough dragon eggs, the dragons then show in their area.

These dragons can be found in these locations:

Those attending the festival get the opportunity to unlock a special reward for the rest of the world as they encounter Dragon Oddities in Indianapolis. Returning a total of 150,000 Dragons unlocks a special 3-hour Day of the Dragons event in these regions and times:

  • Asia-Pacific
    • September 6 11:00 PM to September 7 2:00 AM EDT
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India
    • September 7 from 6:00 AM to 9:00 AM EDT
  • Americas and Greenland
    • September 7 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM EDT

Fan Festival Global Challenge

Those who won't be able to join other wizards in Indianapolis still get the chance to experience the event through the Fan Festival Global Challenge. In this challenge, players encounter four new types of Portkey Portmanteaus throughout the weekend. Each special Portmanteau contains a Portkey that transports players to the Forbidden Forest where they have the opportunity to collect one of four Dragon Eggs. The special Portmanteaus are going to be easily recognizable on the map since they match the color of the Dragon Egg that is found inside.

Through the weekend, the number of Dragon Eggs collected are going to be tracked and once certain milestones are reached players get to unlock different rewards beginning September 2 at 1:00 PM EDT until September 9 at 1:00 PM EDT. The milestones and rewards are:

If all milestones are reached, a special Day of the Dragons event is going to take place on September 7. Within this 3-hour period, each region is going to be visited by a Dragon not typically found in the area. The exact type of Dragon is going to depend on what type of Dragon Egg was collected the most in that specific region during the Global Challenge.

For those who are interested in attending the event at Indiana, some Sunday tickets are still available via the app.
