Fortnite Winterfest 2023: date, skins, map, presents

Every year, Fortnite adds a Christmas event "Fortnite: Winterfest" which brings new skins, gestures, gifts and many more novelties. It's been a few days since the new season was released, and we're looking forward to seeing which surprises await us!

What is a Christmas Winterfest event in Fortnite?

Like every year, this year, Fortnite organizes a special holiday event – Winterfest with new skins, presents, and good cheer. This year, it introduces a new Winterfest Lodge to explore – the Cozy Lodge, where players will find various challenges that will go on for 14 days. Also, Fortnite players will get good rewards, gifts, new skins, and some holiday mood. You'll also have Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations to keep our characters excited about the holidays.

When is the Fortnite Winterfest 2023 release date?

If 2023 is similar to 2022, then Winterfest 2023 will run from December 14, 2023, at 9 AM EST until January 2, 2024, at 9 AM EST. Log in and unwrap up to 17 free in-game gift items.
