Festival of the Guildpact

Ravnica on festival day.

The Festival of the Guildpact is celebrated every year from Zuun 28th into Seleszeni 1st to commemorate the day the Guildpact was signed, and also to celebrate the start of a new year. It is one of Ravnica’s few city-wide holidays, usually starting the night before and carrying on through the next day, that is universally acknowledged and partaken in. Festivities generally include planewide drinking, baked goods, folk dances and music. The city’s Tenth District receives a major influx of tourism around the time, as many wish to be close to the place where the paruns historically signed the Guildpact.

After the events of the Decamillennial and the Guildpact’s destruction, the festival began to fall out of style, as many jaded citizens wonder what is left to celebrate when the guilds are now unfettered and have been striking out at each other. Yet tradition is hard to remove entirely, and the festival still occurs around Ravnica every year regardless, though without nearly as much gusto as it did prior to the ten-thousand year mark.
