Fortnite Birthday Bash – what you need to know. So while I am over here writing about Fortnite cakes, perhaps you were looking for birthday cakes in Fortnite for the birthday bash, or wanting to know about party favors or what lies ahead for fortnite birthday events.
We are spilling the beans on what we do know about Epic Game’s birthday celebration of the beloved Fortnite.
What is the Fortnite Birthday Bash?
Each year, for the last 3 years Epic Games has celebrated their billion dollar game Fortnite in a EPIC way. It gets the players involved in the birthday party over the course of several days by throwing an in-game event.
In Game Challenges, Party Favors and More
What better way to celebrate the anniversary of this popular game than with a birthday event. Fortnite is known for throwing some epic events and the birthday event never disappoints. The Fortnite Birthday Bash features in-game challenges and rewards, including an emote just for logging in during the celebration.
Attention to detail is given to the in-game experience. Fortnite makes festive changes around the island, including doing things like giving party favors for logging in and decorating the battle bus!
Fortnite Birthday Bash 2021
It’s 2021, when’s the 2021 Fortnite Birthday Event and what do we know about it? Let’s spill the tea on what we know about how Epic Games plans on celebrating Fortnite’s 4th Birthday.
Fortnite’s 4th birthday is on July 24, 2021 – but remember, chances are the game event won’t be until late September 2021.
In 2020, the Battle Royale birthday was celebrated rather than the game’s birthday. So if I were a planner, I would plan on September 2021 is the best bet for Fortnite’s 4th Birthday Bash.
When is the Fortnite Birthday Celebration?
Update 9/15/2021 – the latest Fortnite birthday bash rumor has the 4th birthday event happening on or around September 26th.
Epic has a lot going on with the legal battle with Apple, and no official news has yet to be released about the epic Fortnite Birthday Bash on their blog or social channels.
What’s Can We Expect at the 2021 Fortnite Birthday Bash?

We also know that in 2020, there was no birthday llama but were told that the birthday llama would be back for the 2021 birthday event.
Fortnite Turns 3 Years Old – 2020
Fortnite turns 3 years old in July of 2020. This year, the celebration was a bit different. Epic celebrated Fortnite’s third birthday of Battle Royale, rather than the traditional July celebration. To celebrate you would need to play Fortnite between September 26 and October 1, 2020.
The battle bus featured a fresh new paint job for the occasion. The best part, Fortnite gifts on their birthday so find your birthday present (or if you are looking for ACTUAL presents, check out our Fortnite gifts.)
In 2020, Epic gave away the Take the Cake Emote as a party favor to celebrate.
