Luna New Year is an event that takes place at Maji Market in the Fairgrounds, accessed in the southeast corner of Kilima Valley.


The hotpot is bubbling, the lanterns are lit, the chapaas are chirping, and that can only mean one thing: the Maji Market is in town and ready to celebrate the Luna New Year!

For one month, the Kilima Village Fairgrounds will host the Maji Market, a lively night market full of food, games, and festivities to welcome the Luna New Year, a time of new beginnings and community. Join the Palian residents during this limited-time event and take part in all the customs and traditions of the holiday. Pull up a seat, grab a snack, and learn all about what this installment of the Maji Market brings.


You will receive a letter from Kenli to let you know the Maji Market is in town. The Fairgrounds will be open from 6:00 PM - 3:00 AM Palia Time, so be sure to check it out as soon as it starts getting dark. Once you get to the Fairgrounds, you’ll be able to partake in the 3-act quest line, Quest Icon.png New Year, New Wishes, where you can help Zeki learn the meaning of making a wish. There will be fan favorite activities returning, such as chapaas to chase and cards to stamp. There will also be fresh new features to keep you entertained, including a dazzling new prize wheel and various hotpots where you can "cook up" some extra fun (and event currency!).

Chapaa Chase


A returning Maji Market amusement, Chapaa Chase is a multiplayer activity where participants must run around the fairgrounds collecting escaped chapaas to earn Lucky Envelope.png Lucky Envelopes.

Hotpot Minigame


On the docks of the Fairgrounds, you'll find large hotpot tables, where you can join others to participate in the new Hotpot Minigame. Once you get the hang of it, you can potentially earn yourself large amounts of Lucky Envelope.png Lucky Envelopes.

Stamp Cards


If you are unsure of what to do while visiting the market, be sure to check the Events tab to review the current Stamp Cards. These cards not only provide you with specific goals to accomplish, they also reward you handsomely for your efforts!

Wish Tree


At the center of the festive fairgrounds, you’ll see the magnificent Wish Tree, full of ribbons, color, and hopes for the new year. To celebrate prosperity and bring good luck, join in on the Maji tradition of making wishes and who knows — your wish might even be granted! Each real-world day upon login, you’ll receive a letter from Chayne that includes a wish ribbon. Bring your Wish Ribbon to the Fairgrounds during the Luna New Year celebration to make your wishes.


Dye your ribbon at the dye station and bring it to the tree, which shows a special cutscene interaction. The following night, check in by the Wish Tree, at a small shrine, to see if Maji granted your wish!

  • Ribbon dyed blue will grant a Gift of Luck Gift of Luck that awards the player with Lucky Envelope.png 200 Lucky Envelopes
  • Ribbon dyed orange will grant a Gift of Prosperity Gift of Prosperity that awards the player with Gold.png 200 Gold
  • Ribbon dyed pink will grant a Gift of Longevity Gift of Longevity that awards the player with Renown.png 5 Renown
