The Festival of Lights was a party in Club Penguin Rewritten. It was first confirmed in issue #141 of the Club Penguin Times. It began on January 23, 2020, and ended on January 30, 2020.


In issue #141 of the Club Penguin Times, Gary announced that there would be an upcoming eclipse on the island. As a result, many penguins were wondering how to celebrate the event.

According to one penguin, the party-planners were calling this party the Festival of Lights. Later on, Jet Pack Guy was hinted to come for the party in the Club Penguin Times.

  • The eclipse event was first hinted at in the Penguin Style Jan'20 catalog.
    • The January section of the catalog was set in a night-time setting. Furthermore, there were some hidden items that were flight-related. Due to this, many players assumed the next party would be the Festival of Flight, or something similar, that takes place at night.
  • This is the second time an eclipse occurred on Club Penguin Island. The first was in October 2018.
  • It was hinted in issue #142 of the Club Penguin Times that Jet Pack Guy would be visiting during the party.[1]
  • During construction, at the Town, the Stadium could be seen instead of the Ice Rink.
  • When the party was first released, the Fire Dojo and Serene Springs did not have a night sky.
  • Screenhog composed the music for this party.[2]
  • The text on the Login Screen said "Festial" instead of Festival. This was later fixed.
  • The Light Bulb Pin could not be obtained when the party was first released. This was fixed on January 24, 2020.
    • Similarly, the Bat Pin could be found at the Cove despite its icon not appearing anywhere in the Cove itself. However, when trying to pick the pin up, it would say: "This item is currently unavailable." As of January 24, 2020, it has been removed.
  • The letters E, P and F, on the sign board outside of the Everyday Phoning Facility lit up every few seconds.
    • This was a reference to the June 2010 page of the Yearbook 2009 - 2010, in which clicking the letters E, P, F, on the Everyday Phoning Facility in one of the polaroids would highlight them in red.
    • Similarly, the lights in the Night Club, when viewed from outside in the Town, changed color every few seconds.
  • When the party was initially released, several indoor rooms were not updated to reflect the ongoing eclipse outside. This was changed in an update on January 26, 2020.
