Events are time-limited implementations which usually have a theme and special, not available anywhere else rewards, such as Event Dragons.
Events most of the time will start the Friday at the week of the event update release.
The events are listed by the date they were introduced.
A required update to the Merge Dragons app is usually available 2-3 days before a new Event is due to start.
Rewards for events vary randomly as the devs test player reactions; for example in the 2019 Thanksgiving event, some people got a nest of hatched Griffon Owlets and a level 4 Midas Tree, while others got a nest of eggs and a level 3 tree for completing the same event.

- The table above is true for the last several previous events, not all.
- You can, eventually, always buy an egg from the buy menu with the previous Event's dragon, given you've unlocked the dragon whelp of that event (with the Stadium Dragons as an exception). New players can try and get the whelps from the recurring Ancient Games which usually has past event eggs as prizes.
- A holiday kind event is expected to be released every month. Any event that happened is expected to be available again next year in the same month, though it won't necessarily be exactly the same. In that matter, any event which is not time-related, such as the Magic Moon Event, can potentially reoccur in a different month across the year than the month of initial occurrence. Time-related events are mostly but not limited to holidays.
- There will always be 6 Dragon Eggs and 2 Mystery Tanzanite Eggs in every event map; as of 2019 it ' generally 3 eggs each of two types.
- Ancient Games is a recurring event.
- Lately (August 2018), it seems events are usually going to occur every two weeks with old events reoccurring many times.
