The event will likely kick off with patch 12.13 or 12.14. However, the skins will be rolled out with a number of patches due to many Champions getting their own epochal cosmetics. The event will likely last for around a month but Riot can also stretch it a bit.

New League of Legends Melee ADC Nilah reportedly coming with Star Guardian Skins
Star Guardian has been an incredible hit for Riot Games over the years. In 2016, the first Star Guardian skins were released while the roster expanded next in 2017. The latter turned out to be one of the most successful events in LoL’s history.
After that, the event returned in 2019 and introduced four new skins. Although the fans didn’t like them as much as the previous ones. This time, fans are expecting the event to introduce some brilliant skins.
