The StarCraft 20th Anniversary was a unique StarCraft-themed event in Heroes of the Storm that ran from March 27, 2018 until April 23, 2018.

There are no in-game event quests, but players are awarded a set of three event portraits simply for logging into the game during the event. The event coincides with the release of the new hero Fenix on March 27, 2018. Part of the event is also a Fenix release stream on twitch.tv/blizzheroes on March 28, 2018.
