The Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival is a series of events hosted by Square Enix to celebrate the world of Final Fantasy XIV. The festival began in 2014 and continues to host events in North America, Europe, and Japan. The exception to this is the 2021 event that was held digitally due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Each event lasts for two days and features a variety of activities for fans to engage in. Tickets to the event are $199.99 USD and include entry to the event as well as a goodie bag for attendees. Tickets to the event are non-refundable, and guests are advised to make travel plans before booking their tickets.

The Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival provides a wealth of information for gamers. The festival presents updates from the development team of the game, a presentation from the voice actors of the game, as well as a live performance from the game's band, The Primals. The Event also contains entertainment in the form of trivia contests and a Crystal Conflict Championship.
