Square Enix has announced the dates for three FFXIV Fan Festivals that will take place in 2023 and 2024. For fans who wish to go, these events will be in Las Vegas (USA), London (England), and Japan. More information on the Japanese event, such as which city will host the FFXIV Fan Festival, will appear in the near future.
The dates and precise locations for each Fan Festival are:
- Las Vegas: July 28 – 29, 2023
Las Vegas Convention Center
- London: October 21 – 22, 2023
- Japan: Early 2024
Because Japan’s event is so far away, it is likely that Square Enix has not made reservations for conventions halls as of yet. Tickets are not yet available. This will be the first physical FFXIV Fan Festival since the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. It will feature in-person events such as live stage panels and concerts.

The last FFXIV Fan Festival was in 2021 and it was digital only. Even if you could not go, Square Enix released commemorative items such as the Lunar Whale mount. While prices may be different this year, the last time an in-person event happened, tickets cost $149.99 for both days. This included in-game items and a bag of merchandise.
Final Fantasy XIV is available on PS4, PS5, and Windows PC.
