Festival of Neggs Coverage
2020 Festival of Neggs
Kari, the Negg Faerie, is hosting this year's Festival of Neggs again! Starting on April 9th at 10:00am NST, Kari began looking for the stolen neggs hiding around the site, and when found, awarded Neopians with a choice of spring-themed items. The event will run for 15 days with the first 1.5 days counting as one, running through April 24th.
When visiting the Festival of Neggs page for the first time this year, you are greeted with an introductory message:
Kari: "Oh, welcome. Happy Festival of Neggs! You haven't noticed anything strange around here, have you?"
"I was all set to take the lead this year since Topsi decided to play hide-and-seek and no one's seen him in weeks. I wonder if anyone's actually looking for him? Anyway, more importantly, since he left the stand unattended, someone or something has stolen most of the Neggs before I had a chance to hide them."
Click on the green "Just try and stop me!" button to join the event. The Negg Gazer is assisting finding the missing neggs by sharing his visions and providing clues from the main Neggfest page. After findng neggs at the locations below, you will be offered the choice of one of three random Neggs for your efforts (there are five possible Neggs, but you will only have a choice of three per day).
Clue: I see... I see: a throne. Upon which a King appears to have the blues... Or he IS blue. Hard to tell.
Location: Grumpy Old King
Discovery Text: You sneak a look under the throne and find a stash of Neggs!
Kari exclaims, "Wow! You sure are a smart little Neopet. I'll get these right back to the Negg Cart. Please, pick whichever Negg you'd like!"
Claim Text: King Skarl growls at you, "Begone! Far too many have been snooping underneath my throne for one day."
Clue: I'm seeing giant heads... on a mysterious beach. Does that mean anything to you?
Location: The Beach
Discovery Text: In the mouth of one of the monuments, you find a stash of Neggs!
Kari claps excitedly, "Yay! Here it is! Choose your Negg!"
Claim Text: Underneath the statue is a tooth... Or a claw. It's hard to say which.
Clue: I hear a voice. It's saying, "Slickety-splat, did you see that Darblat?" What is this? Some kind of game?
Discovery Text: One of the Darblats relinquishes a stash of Neggs!
Kari shivers, "Oh how n-n-n-neggtacular! Let's get out of the c-c-c-cold but first take your p-p-p-pick of these Neggs!"
Claim Text: The Darblats look scared and scuttle away... Something spooked them.
Clue: I can see a ship that doesn't sail... And a sale that only accepts golden dubloons.
Location: The Golden Dubloon
Discovery Text: Hidden under one of the tables is a stash of Neggs!
Kari smiles, "Another stash! We're doing great! Take whichever one you like."
Claim Text: The bartender croaks, "No Neopet gets out of here without paying their tab. That scallywag was no Neopet."
Clue: This tree has a mind of its own. Literally... And you can see it! Eww.
Location: Brain Tree
Discovery Text: Behind the tree you unearth a stash of Neggs!
Kari looks around, a little spooked, "Great find but we shouldn't linger. This tree gives me the creeps. Which Negg would you like?"
Claim Text: The Brain Tree booms, "Don't be a fool! Some monsters are both old AND new!"
Clue: Oh dear. I can feel the Dark magic of a purple Faerie in Faerieland.
Location: Jhudora's Bluff
Discovery Text: Jhudora laughs and hands you the stash of Neggs!
Kari glares at the Dark Faerie, "Thank you. We'll be on our way, then. As soon as you choose which Negg you'd like."
Claim Text: The Dark Faerie says, "Take it. I have no need for such springtime nonsense. I explained that to he who came before."
Clue: What desert tomb has a puzzle?... that IS the puzzle.
Location: Sutek's Tomb
Discovery Text: A secret compartment opens and inside is a stash of Neggs!
Kari dusts sand out of her wings, "Wow! Well done. I'd have never guessed that. Which Negg do you want to keep?"
Claim Text: It would take a lot of strength to open this compartment... A lot!
Clue: I am walking into caves of a primeval world. There are markings made on the walls. Almost... Artistic.
Location: Tyrannian Cave Painting
Discovery Text: Covered in dirt, you pull out a stash of Neggs!
Kari looks inside eagerly, "Yes! There are lots of Neggs here. Go ahead and pick your favourite."
Claim Text: There are deep, four-clawed footprints leading to and from the hiding spot.
Clue: I hear the sifting of scrolls in Brightvale.
Location: The Scrollery
Discovery Text: You sift through a sack of scrolls and find a stash of Neggs!
Kari counts them out, "Oh there are plenty of Neggs! This'll go a long way. Take whichever Negg you like!"
Claim Text: A Battledome scroll is torn up next to it. The thief clearly has issues with the arena.
Clue: At the bottom of a lake... To find them, you'll need to take some kind of tour.
Location: Glass Bottom Boat Tours
Discovery Text: On the tour, you spot a stash of Neggs and dive in to retrieve it!
Kari waits on the shore, "Thanks for diving in after them. I'm not the best swimmer. Ooh! So many. Choose the Negg you'd like to take home."
Claim Text: Brrrr! It's freezing in this lake.
Clue: I seea city in the cloud... And mmn! Something smells tasty.
Location: Culinary Concoctions
Discovery Text: Hidden in plain sight among the ingredients, is a stash of Neggs!
Kari checks the contents, "These Neggs aren't for eating but they'll be great for our festival. Pick a Negg to keep."
Claim Text: The chef shrugs, "I didn't get a good look. I remember orange and purple."
Clue: I can hear a lot of Grundos at work. I think it's in some kind of storage space.
Location: Grundo Warehouse
Discovery Text: The Grundos look too busy to notice the crate filled with the stash of Neggs!
Kari looks relieved, "Oh thank Fyora we found these ones. They're some of the best! And you can choose the one you like best."
Claim Text: The Fore-Grundo shrugs and checks his clipboard, "I didn't see anyone. This crate was marked "Keep away from the Negg Protection Team" whatever that means."
Clue: The thief left some luggage at this Neopia Central Resort.
Discovery Text: Among the luggage left by previous tenants is the stash of Neggs!
Kari checks the Neggs, with enthusiasm, "Ooh! We'll do great with these ones. Which would you like?"
Claim Text: The concierge looks confused, "Strangely, no one remembers the guest checking in but he put "Shenkuu" under the return address."
Clue: You must glide... Underground.
Location: Cave Glider
Discovery Text: You glide down and snatch the stash of Neggs that was left hanging on a stalagtite!
Kari flaps down next to you, "Great catch! Now, let's see. Which Negg would you like to keep?"
Claim Text: Among the Neggs, is a piece of the Ancient Negg Amulet.
Clue: I see a moon. And miners. They're diggin for something...
Location: Kreludan Mining Corp.
Discovery Text: In a recently dug pit, you find a stash of Neggs!
Kari checks the Neggs are all acounted for, "Yeah! They're all here. You found the last stash! We're going to have the best festival ever thanks to you! Please, take one."
Claim Text: There's a note written crudely in dirt, "You think me the Neggbreaker? Hihi-hi! No. Big bro is back. And big bro doesn't break Neggs. He Negg-naps!"
Finding each of Kari's Neggs on the first day they are available will grant a bonus at the end of the event, signified by gold checkmarks on the main event page next to each clue. All Neggs will remain available for the duration of the event and can be collected in any order after release.
After selecting a Negg, you will be rewarded with a prize specific to that Negg type as seen below:
Charming Negg Prizes

Gemstone Negg Prizes
Marble Negg Prizes
Nature Negg Prizes
This year's Neocash component involves using Neggbot Tinker Kits to convert special Neggs you may find into exclusive wearables.

As a new bonus this year for finding all Neggs on release day, all of the Neggs were awarded as actual items. No notice appeared, but they showed up in your inventory after visiting the Neggfest page to collect your final prizes.
