The Spring Fayre is a seasonal event that returns each spring. The activities are the same as the previous year's; however, there are new rewards, including cosmetic override outfits, an Easter egg follower pet called Eggos, and a Zoltan plushie. The event was originally meant to end on 23 April, however this was later pushed back to 30 April.[1]

Cosmetic rewards may be obtained from tradeable reward tokens found while participating in activities, rather than being bought through tickets as they were the year before. Rewards may also be unlocked with RuneCoins.

Players are notified about the Spring Fayre upon logging in with the message The Spring Fayre is active in Lumbridge Crater!
