"The Festival of the Lost has arrived! Wear masks, collect candy, and laugh in the face of death. Visit Eva Levante and Tess Everis in the Tower to join the celebration."
— Event description
The Festival of the Lost, as celebrated in the Tower

The Festival of the Lost was a limited time event held in the Tower each year in Destiny 1, coinciding with Halloween.

The event returns in Destiny 2 with Amanda Holliday hosting the celebration due to Eva Levante's absence following the events of the Red War.[1]


"Have some candy, Guardian. Death has passed us by this night."
Eva Levante

The Festival of the Lost honors and celebrates the spirits of the dead, Guardian and citizen alike. The event involves the consumption of candy.[2]


Year Two[edit]


Eva Levante brought this tradition to the Tower so Guardians could have a better understanding of the people they are protecting. It is a tradition that recognizes friends and loved ones who have died, and so the festival is marked with joy and sorrow. It is celebrated with brightly colored decorations, dressing up in costume (especially the wearing of masks), and the exchange of candy. [3]


The first event began on October 26, 2015, and ended on November 9, 2015.[4]

Speaking with Eva Levante will present players with quest Sweet Memories, in which they must collect candy from vendors around the Tower. Completing this will open three additional quests: The Masks We Wear, Playing Pretend, and Face Off!, each of which require collecting masks and using them in specific situations.

The primary reward of the festival is a collection of new cosmetic items called Masks, which are worn like helmets but offer no additional stats or perks. Rare Masks will expire at the end of the festival and be removed from the player's inventory, but Legendary Masks are permanent; Rare Masks can be upgraded into Legendary Masks using an event-exclusive material called Paper Glue.

  • Mask crafting materials
    • Paper Glue - Used to upgrade a Rare mask into a Legendary Mask (Year One only)
    • Paper Scraps - Traded to Eva Levante for new Rare Masks (Year One only)

Eververse Items[edit]

In addition to the above rewards, the Eververse Trading Company is offering a series of premium Festival of the Lost-themed items, including Treasures of the Lost mystery bags, and the Emotes "Boo", "Monster Dance", and "Zombie Dance".

Year Three[edit]


The second event began on October 25, 2016, and ended on November 8, 2016.

Speaking with Eva Levante will again unlock the Sweet Memories quest, but completing it will reward a new questline. In addition, Tyra Karn at the Iron Temple will have a second questline.

In a change from the previous year's event, all Masks acquired are now Legendary and permanent, without the need for upgrading. However, the majority of Masks are rewarded only from purchasing Treasures of the Lost bags from Eververse. Eva Levante sells only the Speaker Mask, Cryptarch Mask, Crota Mask, and Gifts of the Lost bags with static rewards for candy.

In addition, Trials of Osiris had some changes during Festival of the Lost. Fireteam members were not able to revive each other, radar was disabled, and anyone who aimed down sights for too long would see a spider crawl down their screen. Anyone who won five games during the Halloween-themed Trials of Osiris received the Midnight Hunt emblem.

Destiny 2[edit]

Year Two[edit]

"I’ll be damned if we’re gonna sit around and mope all day—Cayde woulda hated that. So let’s have some fun, huh? Put on this mask, and go show the bad guys they can’t keep us down."
Amanda Holliday

Despite the absence of Eva Levante, shipwright Amanda Holliday resumes the Festival of the Lost for the first time since the SIVA Crisis in Destiny. During the final week of Festival of the Lost, Amanda Holliday gave the Guardian a quest to investigate the murder of Master Ives, whose killer was eventually found hiding inside the wall of the now-quarantined Cosmodrome. Completing the quest rewarded the Guardian with the exotic weapon, Thunderlord. [5]


The event began on October 16, 2018, and concluded on on November 6, 2018.

Guardians are tasked with clearing out the "ghouls and demons" of the Haunted Forest. Players will have 15 minutes to clear the Nightmares of the Haunted Forest. This activity will act similarly to a Strike where players can enter it solo and invite two other players to play with or may enter as a Fireteam of two or three.


The following items can be purchased from Amanda Holliday after completing Event Triumphs or with Fragmented Soul currency, which can be earned from the Haunted Forest or by completing Festival of the Lost bounties.

Year 3[edit]

Unlike the 2018 Festival of the Lost, the main vendor for this event is Eva Levante. This year she has all types of treats for sale like various masks, various grab bags, and the BrayTech Werewolf. Like the previous Festival, guardians returned to the haunted forest on Mercury to defeat terrors (previously called nightmares but with Shadowkeep around that would be confusing) and to clear branches, earning them candy and chocolate strange coins in the process. The Festival also included a whole new set of Triumphs to earn that could only be completed during the event.


The Tower Plaza and Tower North are decorated for the duration of the event with candles, banners, paper lanterns shaped like Engrams, a sparkling air effect, and audible screams and foreboding music. Cayde-6 wears an Eris Morn Mask, the Speaker wears a Traveler Mask, Banshee-44 wears a Master Rahool Mask, Eva Levante wears a Crota Mask, and Master Rahool wears an Exotic Engram Mask. In addition, the Tower's day/night cycle has been locked at nighttime, and spotlights in the Last City project a massive Festival of the Lost sigil onto the exterior of the Traveler.
