HistoryEdit

The original festival used to be one day long and focused on celebrating Waterdeep's free trade and commerce. It was gradually expanded to include older festivities, to a point where its name was only maintained by force of habit. In the 14th century DR, the tenday-long festival was already several centuries old.[2]
