WoW Feast Of Winter Veil 2020

The Feast of Winter Veil is World of Warcraft's take on a Christmas event.


During this time Orgrimmar and Ironforge will be decked out in seasonal decorations.

While the event is on there's plenty of quests to do and items to collect!

Right now there isn't a lot of information on this year's event but we've listed previous features below to give you an idea of what's to come in the meantime.

Release Date

No release date has been confirmed yet.

As well as that there isn't a recurring start or end date to go by.

Although, we know this event tends to end in the first week of January.


We'll keep you updated if we hear more on the launch date!


There are three quest sets to complete during Winter Veil.

Bear in mind you must be level 50 to complete the below quests.

  1.  Greatfather Winter is Here! (Alliance) / Great-father Winter is Here! (Horde)
  2.  Treats for Greatfather Winter (Alliance) / Treats for Great-father Winter (Horde)

Another quest series gives the history of Winter Veil and rewards you with reputation with the Orgrimmar/Ironforge.
