EVERQUEST 5TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS
Where to find them and how to do them!
It sure can be a a massacre, when you become a scavenger! - Bonzz
The 5th Anniversary of EverQuest saw the introduction of temporary, special Anniversary event.
After that, it became an annual inclusion in EverQuest, with new events being added each year, as well as the old ones being reactivated right along beside them.
Anniversary Events generally start around March 16th (EverQuest was launched March 16, 1999), and continue to about mid-May.
There are now so many Anniversary Events that they are implemented in two parts... "Modern" events (14th Anniversary and forward) and "Legacy" events (5th to 13th Anniversary).
As a note, there were no Anniversary Events before the 5th Year of EverQuest.
The "Legacy" events do not award Commemorative Coins, but do include Fabled MOB's. These events do not start until near mid-April.
The "Modern" events generally do award Commemorative Coin, which is a specialty coin that can used to buy special items with "a jubilant merchant" in the Plane of Knowledge (near the Nexus stone, stuff ain't cheap!). These events start right away.
The Mechanical Fortune Teller (near the Crescent Reach stone) was added to the Plane of Knowledge, to help direct you to the events (by year), because now, there are a lot of them. Just hail her and follow along.
The reward for this quest is one of (5) version of the Staff of Endless Adventure (depending on when your character was originally created).

There are actually (5) different versions of the Staff of Endless Adventure, each with a different fireworks effect, when clicked.
The version you get depends on when your Character was originally created, as follows:
NOTE: There appears to be no way to acquire any other version of this item. Just to be sure, I did the quest more than once (so you can repeat it), even though the NPC response mentioned handing me a Staff, I did not get another / different version of this item. So, you can only get one, based on that.
