Caldari Union Day (alternatively Union Day[note 1]) was a limited time event running between 4-7 September 2020, downtime to downtime. During this period, capsuleers could log in to earn fireworks, and SKINs for the Caldari Shuttle and Badger. Omega clones could also collect 35k Skill Points and Caldari-themed clothing. This event featured celebrations in select systems of Caldari State high security space, and overlapped with a 2v2 Caldari-themed Navy Frigate/Interceptor/Destroyer Abyssal Proving Grounds event.

Summary

From the news article:

Loyal Capsuleers,

Caldari Union Day is upon us once more, meaning it's time to celebrate the Union, its loyal corporations, and its people! There is a daily login event running until 11:00 UTC on 7 September where you can claim free rewards, as well as attend Caldari parades in selected systems, and there will even be awesome player-run gatherings in-game to check out!

By logging in daily during the Union Day event, you can claim free gifts such as Caldari-themed character apparel, Wheel of Prosperity fireworks and Festival launcher, Sukuuvestaa SKINs for the Caldari Shuttle and the Badger, plus Skill Points to boost your training. Pilots in Omega Clone State will get bigger rewards, while also being able to claim the Alpha rewards too!

In addition, you can visit Union Day event sites and witness celebratory parades where there will also be daily challenges with Skill Point rewards. These will take place in the Airkio, Annaro, Josameto, Malkalen, Muvolailen, Saisio, Sobaseki, and Suroken systems.

Finally, to further celebrate Caldari Union Day, the Kimotoro Eskeitan SKIN has returned to EVE Online's New Eden Store for a limited time until 11:00 UTC on 17 September with a 25% discount! It is available on the following hulls: Bustard, Caracal, Cormorant, Crane, Eagle, Flycatcher, Harpy, Hawk, Leviathan, Minokawa, Moa, Onyx, Osprey, Tayra, and Wyvern.
