Niantic Labs has officially revealed the dates for this year's Pokemon GO Fest—the annual celebration for the game.

Warmer weather means one thing in Pokemon GO: it's almost time for the annual Pokemon GO Fest event!

For those unaware, Pokemon GO Fest is a global in-game event put on by Niantic Labs, the game's developer, to celebrate everything Pokemon GO. It typically has a variety of rewards, rare spawns, unique research opportunities, and ways to connect with other local trainers to work together toward accomplishing tasks.

Here's what we know so far.

When is Pokemon GO Fest 2022?

Pokemon GO Fest 2022 will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022, and Sunday, June 5, 2022 with a "bonus finale" on Saturday, August 27, 2022.

All trainers will have two full days of Pokemon GO excitement with an added celebration toward the end of the season.

Additionally, trainers living in a few regions may find themselves eligible to attend one of three Pokemon GO Fest in-person events this year. These are:

  • Berlin, Germany—July 1-3, 2022
  • Sapporo, Japan—Aug. 5-7, 2022
  • Seattle Washington, USA—July 22-24, 2022

Are there any Pokemon GO Fest 2022 details?

No, not yet. At the time of writing, there is no further information regarding Pokemon GO Fest.

Fans will likely be given more details as the event approaches. We expect an update to come out within the next month or so with ticket sales to follow.


More information about Pokemon GO Fest and the summer events will likely be detailed by Niantic on the official Pokemon GO news blog. We encourage trainers to keep their eyes on verified channels as well as their trusted news sources for further developments as they're revealed.
