All the Festival Playlist challenges in Forza Horizon 5 Series 1


Forza Horizon 5's seasonal challenges are just some of the activities that can keep you occupied in Mexico after you've finished everything there is to do in the base game. Forza Horizon 5 didn't really need to do much to reassert the series as the best arcade racing fun you can have on PC, but that didn't stop Playground Games from going just as hard on its post-launch activities as it did in 4.

That comes in the form of Forza Horizon 5's Festival Playlist, which returns from the previous game. It's a series of missions and challenges such as races, events, and PR stunts that can reward you things like Wheelspins, cosmetics, and even new Forza Horizon 5 cars. Vehicles like the Mercedes-AMG One, which you can unlock by getting 120 points across the first series.

The playlist is structured into Series—we're currently in the first, introductory one, 'Welcome to Mexico'. New activities refresh each Thursday at 10am ET (7am PT / 3pm GMT), and we know them all, and the rewards attached, up to the end of the first Series on December 9—after which a festive 'Holiday Special' Series will kick off in seasonal style. But back to Series 1: here are the challenges and rewards you can expect, as of November 25.
