The Dragon Festival is an annual Canthan celebration that takes place in the summer.
History[edit | edit source]
The Dragon Festival is an ancient Canthan tradition. After the assassination of Emperor Angsiyan at the hands of Shiro Tagachi and the catastrophe of the Jade Wind which threatened to wipe out and destroy the empire of Cantha, newly crowned emperor, Emperor Hanjai, the son of Angsiyan, turned this ancient tradition into a large scale celebration in order to unite the empire in its reconstruction.
The festival marks the anniversary of establishing the settlement on Shing Jea Island as well as the expansion of Kaineng City to accommodate the refugees from the areas hit hardest by the Jade Wind. The Dragon Festival has come to symbolize the survival of the Empire of the Dragon (Cantha) in the face of that calamity.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- It is unknown how the concept of "summer" works with the Canthan Calendar. The Season of the Phoenix, which is summer on the Mouvelian Calendar and the Dynastic Reckoning calendar, corresponds to the Canthan months of Zalfawn, Saita, and Mikan. However, assuming that the world of Tyria has hemispheres, Cantha may be in a separate hemisphere from Tyria and Elona.
