Before the Epic Games offices close for their annual two-week Summer break, they will be hosting a special celebration event for players to earn in-game rewards and various quests as part of Fortnite Season 7.
Fortnite Season 7 is now in full swing as players worldwide are getting a chance to check out some of the new content Epic has implemented with the onset of the alien invasion. A fresh battle pass, and new weapons are the stand-out additions once again, as Epic aims to shift the meta for the Summer.
Now, they have announced a brand new event for players to celebrate the beginning of Summer. During the event, players will be able to earn in-game rewards and complete a new round of quests.
Here’s all you need to know about Fortnite’s Cosmic Summer Celebration.

The full details of the event are still to be announced by Epic Games, but it also coincides with the annual two-week long Summer break Epic usually takes at the beginning of July.
“Following the FNCS All-Star Showdown, we’ll take a two-week break (June 28 – July 11) on all competitions. We’ll be taking some time to relax and recharge, and you should too,” the company said in their Chapter 2 Season 7 competitive blog.
When is the Cosmic Summer Celebration?
The Cosmic Summer Celebration event is going to begin on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, at the following times worldwide:
- 6AM PST
- 9AM EST
- 2PM BST
- 3PM CEST
- 11PM ACT
Believer Beach disappears
On the morning of June 22, just hours before the Cosmic Summer event was due to kick off, the whole of Believer Beach disappeared from the Island. Certain buildings at Holly Hedges were wiped out, too.
The official Fortnite Status Twitter account tweeted that they were “investigating” the disappearance of the recently revamped POI, but it seems very likely that this is all part of the build-up to the Cosmic Summer party.

Cosmic Summer leaks
New event details leaked on the PlayStation store on June 20.
According to the listing, Fortnite fans will see the Cosmic Summer event tie into the live event at Believer Beach, which should begin around the same time.
There’s also a theory floating around that the Believer Beach event could actually lead to the destruction of Coral Castle. While many initially wrote that idea off, a new leak from @TheFoundoFN_7 seems to suggest it’s more likely than first thought; the leaked image shows a totally different POI in the same area.
Dexerto will update this article if more leakers find new clues.

As you can see from the list above, most of these quests will need to be completed in unique Creative maps, and there are some pretty sweet rewards available, ranging from loading screens to back blings and emotes.
We’ll update this post with more details when the Fortnite Cosmic Summer Celebration event gets underway.
