Moonfire Faire 2017 Quests in FFXIV
The Isle and The Faire
As you speak to Mayaru Moyaru at the Aftcastle, he will ask you to travel to the Isle of Endless Summer, otherwise known as Costa del Sol, which is located in the southeast of Vylbrand, an eastern part of La Noscea. There, you'll need to speak to an NPC named Haermaga.
As soon as you arrive at the beach, you will find Haermaga standing at the bar. Speak to him and he will ask you to help deal with a few things at the faire. But first, you must speak to P’obyano -- a lady at the bar near Haermaga.
P’obyano will ask you to speak to Jiriri, the master’s assistant, about the fireworks at the faire. You will find her nearby on the beach. Lastly, Jiriri will ask you to throw a firework mortar into the firework cannon that is located off the shore at the indicated area on the map.
Swim to the mortar off shore and activate it. When you do this, go back to P’obyano and tell her you've completed the task. This will complete the quest of The Isle and The Faire.
These Fireworks Won’t Light Themselves
After, speak to P’obyano again, and she will give you more fireworks to burn, but this time, you must burn all three of them.
All three firework mortars are located off shore around the Isle of Endless Summer. They will be indicated on your map, so you will need to go to each location and fire them up.
Then, return to P’obyano and get your rewards.
You Had Me at Haddock
Now, speak to Hildelana -- the faire’s chef. She will ask you to bring her some battered fish.
There are two ways you can approach this quest: either you catch the fish yourself or you buy it from the festive fisher.
At the same bar, speak to Beaudefoin. He will ask you to bring some more haddock from the North Shore. This time, you actually need to go and catch the fish. Once at the North Shore, you'll need to start fishing for 3x Haddock. When you’re done, bring them back to Beaudefoin.
The True Meaning of Summer
Finally, speak to Haermaga (once again) for the last quest of the event, which will reward you with three new items: Faire Joi, Faire Kohakama, and Faire Zori.
In order to finish the quest, you must deliver seven faire vouchers to Haermaga, which can be earned by repeatedly accepting and completing all of the above-mentioned quests. When you have all of the vouchers, hand them to Haermaga and go wait for him at the Southern Isle.
There, he will ask you for another favor -- he wants you to figure out what Master Gegeruju is looking at through his spyglass. Go to the indicated destination on your map and check the spyglass for yourself.
As it turns out, the young master is strongly interested in the beautiful ladies on the beach. Bring this information to Haermaga to unlock your new items.

Adopt a Beach
You will meet Moonfire Faire Chaperone on the beach, who will offer you to help gather the litter scattered around the isle. As soon as you join the FATE, you will need to gather all the unsightly rubbish from the beach.
The Summer of Ultros
Ultros, the giant purple octopus, is hanging out on the beach and makes all the ladies uncomfortable. You can join this FATE for extra rewards and help finish the beast.
In the end, you can watch the gorgeous fireworks light up the night sky.
