World of Warcraft’s Azeroth is a universe packed to bursting with content to suit the needs of every MMORPG player. From high-tier raids to battles that pit adorable (yet fearsome) pets against one another – there’s a lot to see and do.

If you’re done with trying to find the elusive Night Elf Heritage Armor, or have already unlocked all of the game’s Allied Races, then you may be looking for something a little different to sate your WoW taste buds.

Enter the Darkmoon Faire, a rotating carnival that lures in players from far and wide to wet their whistle with its mysterious mini-games and limited-time rewards. If you’re looking to grab a ticket to the ominous theme park, here’s everything you need to know about WoW’s Darkmoon Faire; from its location and rotations, to the mini-games you can participate in and the rewards you can claim.

WoW Darkmoon Faire: Rotation

World of Warcraft’s Darkmoon Faire appears for one week each month. It begins on the first Sunday, running until the second Sunday.

Therefore, for March, 2022, the Darkmoon Faire will become available on Sunday 6, and run until Sunday 13.
WoW Darkmoon Faire: Location

Portals to the Faire can be found just outside the Horde and Alliance cities of Thunder Bluff and Stormwind, meaning you won’t have to run around for eons trying to find them.

Below are the three different ways to enter the Faire:
  • Horde: Take the portal at Mulgore
  • Alliance: Take the portal at the Goldshire section of Elwynn Forest
  • Both: Speak to the Darkmoon Faire Mystic Mage in most major cities. They will teleport you to the carnival for a small price.
    • They will also give you the Darkmoon Adventurer’s Guide, which you need to collect artifacts.

If you’ve had your fun and scored yourself some prizes, you can exit the Faire using the portal at the Southern End of the island, by the docks, or by returning to the portal you used to get there.


Who goes to the carnival and doesn’t participate in the numerous games on offer?! At the Darkmoon Faire, there are multiple different mini-games that will reward you with gear and help you complete different quests.

In order to participate, you’ll need Darkmoon Game Tokens, with each mini-game charging 1 Game Token to play. These can be bought from Zina Sharpworth (right at the entrance), Sazz Coincatcher (further down the right), and Trixi Sharpworth (next to the Deathmatch Arena).

The playable games are:
  • Whack-a-Gnoll! – If you get a score of 30 you will complete the ‘It’s Hammer Time’ Daily Quest.
  • The Darkmoon Cannon! – Completes ‘The Human Cannonball’ Daily Quest if you get 5 Cannon Target Points.
  • Shooting Gallery! – Hit 25 targets in 60 seconds to complete the ‘He Shoots, He Scores’ Daily.
  • Tonk Challenge! – Destroy 30 Tonk Targets to complete the ‘Tonk Commander’ Daily.
