Fallout 76 is getting its first seasonal event. The Fasnacht Parade is a repeatable week-long celebration in the town of Helvetia that will include gathering quests for party prep, robot marcher escorting, and dealing with uninvited guests that will culminate in a chance to win one of the cosmetic masks pictured above. Fasnacht for Fallout 76 begins on March 19th and ends on March 26th.
The “Fasnacht” in the game is likely based on the Fastnacht or Fasching Carnivals in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, a version of which has been transported to the United States via the Pennsylvania Dutch communities. A fasnacht is a type of pastry traditionally eaten during Carnival.
