The Astral Spire can be found on the event island and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event.

Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Adventure Tent, you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing an additional play is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 12 hours as usual.
Sometimes mini-games contain a Golden Chest that will provide special rewards. You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying an additional play gives a 100% chance of a Golden Chest appearing on your next turn. Please note that this only guarantees that the chest will appear, and not that you will win the chest.
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Star Dust!
- Challenges will last six hours each
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
The Participation Station rewards you for each day you play during the event.
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises! Earn free Star Dust and even dragons!
If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit the Participation Station, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?
Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on July 28th, 2022.
If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.26.
What is the daily limit of Star Dust?
There is no overall daily limit on Star Dust in this event, but the maximum amount of Dust you can earn by collecting from habitats is 500 per day on a regular day and 1000 on a double day.
Why am I not receiving Star Dust when I collect from my habitats?
If you are no longer earning any Star Dust when you collect from habitats, that would indicate that you have reached your habitat limit for the day.
Why didn't I win the Golden Chest when I bought an additional play at the Adventure Tent?
Buying an additional play guarantees that a Golden Chest will appear as one of the possible prizes in that round, but does not guarantee that you will be able to win it. Please note that in Name that Dragon/Egg you must answer correctly before the timer expires in order to win the Golden Chest.
When does Camping Under the Stars end?
Camping Under the Stars runs through September 4th, and concludes on September 5th at 08:00 AM Mountain Time. It will not be possible to earn additional Star Dust after this time, but The Astral Spire remains open so you can spend any leftover Star Dust you may have.
When does The Astral Spire close?
The Astral Spire will close on September 7th at 08:00 AM Mountain Time and it will not be possible to claim event prizes after this time.
What happens to my leftover Star Dust at the end of Camping Under the Stars?
After The Astral Spire closes, we'll turn any leftover Star Dust into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 Dust.
Why don’t I have any visitors in my park?
During Camping Under the Stars, you will find several bright stars as the clickable NPCs in your park. Find them and tap on them for extra Star Dust!
Why did the theme and time of day in my park change?
With each event there is an accompanying theme, and depending on that, the time of day in your park will also be affected. The theme can be changed manually with the Twilight Tower building at any time, but the theme will revert back to normal day and night cycles when the event ends. You can easily tell what time of day is set by the active theme by checking if any lamps or other decorations that respond to time are active.
What is the skybox theme with the current event?
For the duration of this event, the theme is the Star Fall theme, which is a night theme. It will go back to day and night cycles when the event ends, but this can also be manually changed from the Twilight Tower at any time.
