There are different festivals in different seasons. Each one is unique and some are very fun. There are various festivals each season, and it is a great idea to attend each of them for potential prizes and to gain popularity.

Spring Festivals


Planting Festival
Date:
8th
The first festival of the year is a time-honored tradition that is supposed to help farmers have a good growing year. All of the villagers release balloons into the air when you give the signal. Each year a king is chosen at the Harvest Festival in Fall, and the king gets to go up in the balloon with a chosen assistant. The first year I believe is always the Potion Shop Owner.
Flower Festival
Date:
23rd
All of the villagers have an opportunity to vote for the Princess of the Flower Festival during the week leading up to the festivities. Once the Princess is chosen, you'll be able to dance with the girl of your choice. A good bit of advice is not to vote for the girl you like your first year, because as the Princess she must dance with the King, who is the potion shop owner the first year. In your second year, if you were not fortunate enough to be chosen as the next year's King, and if you happen to have the Princess's heart level at yellow or pink, the current King may ask to switch partners to allow you to dance with her.
  Other Events
Other events include the Horse Race! At horse races, when your horse is old enough, you can participate in the races. If you don't participate you can still bet on horses. The horse race takes place on Spring 17th. See the *Secrets section to find out a cool cheat!

Summer Festivals


Vegetable Festival
Date:
9th
Either take a vegetable to enter the contest at the annual Vegetable Festival or go empty-handed and serve as a judge. Like most festivals, your participation increases your standing in the community.
Firefly Festival
Date:
17th
The Firefly Festival is another ancient tradition of the local people. It involves launching a flotilla of lit lanterns onto the water down at the beach. You can buy a lantern from Rick's shop in the second year if you give him Moonlight Stones found in the mines during the winter.
Sea Festival
Date:
24th
This party falls late in the summer. Like the horse races in spring, it requires skill and stamina to win the swimming race and first place trophy. Like the Firefly Festival, the Sea Festival takes place on the sandy beach.
  Other Events
There is one other event this month. The fireworks. They are on the 1st of the month. This is a very important step of wooing your choice girl, as each girl is located in a different area. In order to watch the Fireworks with a girl, all you need to do is go to that area. The following lists the locations of each girl.
Karen - The Beach
Ann - Green Ranch
Popuri - Moon Mountain
Elli - Bakery
Maria - Town Square

Fall Festivals


Cow Festival
Date:
4th
Take your best adult cow to the festival to be judged against other top cows in the area. The cow that gives the finest quality milk is your best bet for the first prize. If you don't take a cow, you'll have to judge the entries. If you win, your cow produces special milk which is worth 500G. And if you win, leave your cow outside the day after, something may happen!
Harvest Festival
Date:
12th
This is your chance to sample the produce and food from the rest of the town. Elli from the bakery will give you a cake. Be sure to take it, because there might be a coin inside the cake. If you get a coin, you will be next years King!
Egg Festival
Date:
20th
The Egg Festival is like a variation of the Easter Egg Hunt. The main event is an egg hunt in which the mayor shows a colored egg and the contestants try to find an identical egg somewhere in the village. See Prizes to find out what you win!
  Other Events
This month is also another Horse Race on the 28th, and in the first summer, you can work on the bridge in the mountain with the carpenters from the 23rd to the 27th.

Winter Festivals


Thanksgiving
Date:
10th
The quaint custom for this holiday involves young farmers staying at home to greet a number of guests. In this case, the young ladies from town might bring by gifts of food (cake). When your special sweetheart comes by, you'd better be waiting.
Starry Night
Date:
24th
This is a magical night best spent with you girlfriend. Three of the prospective mates--Marie, Ann, and Elli--- will be singing in the church. You'll be able to find Karen on the beach and Popuri in the woods.
Spirit Festival
Date:
27th
If you bought the ocarina from Rick's shop, take it to the town square on the evening of the 27th and jam with Popuri and the owner of the bakery. The music is said to scare away mischievous ghosts.
  New Years
Date:
1st of Spring
New Year's Day is one of celebration and fun. You've survived for an entire year, made new friends, built up the farm and made a life for yourself. This might be a good time to ask your favorite young lady to join you. Prepare for this festival by drinking a lot of beer, then you can outdrink everyone!
  Other Events
This season also holds the mine opening in the cave at Moon Mountain from the 8th-30th. In your first year you can work on the Mountain Spring the 12th-16th, and the Dog Race takes place on the 19th. Also you may be invited to a New Year's Eve celebration somewhere by a special lady!
