- Main page: Egg Festival
The featured attraction of the Egg Festival is the Egg Hunt. You and the other villagers search for small colored eggs hidden around Pelican Town. The Egg Hunt starts by talking to Mayor Lewis. You must gather 9 colored eggs (in 50 seconds, real time), or else Abigail will win. If you win, you will receive a Straw Hat as a reward. If you have already won an Egg Hunt in previous years, you will receive 1,000g.
There is a booth set up where you can purchase a decorative Plush Bunny and Strawberry Seeds. (If you plant the seeds the same night as the festival, you will be able to harvest Strawberries two times before Summer).
The festival ends after Mayor Lewis announces the winner of the Egg Hunt.
- Main page: Flower Dance
The dance takes place in the far west of the forest, across the bridge that is south of the Wizard's Tower. This area is accessible only during the Flower Dance.
During this festival, you can dance with one of the bachelors or bachelorettes. You must talk to them (twice) and invite them to dance, but they will refuse unless you have four hearts of friendship with them. You can talk to the other villagers and they will have event-related dialogue.
Dancing will increase friendship with your partner by 1 heart (250 points).
Once you talk to Mayor Lewis, the dance begins. The festival ends after the dance is performed.
Watch Flower Dance Video.
- Main page: Luau
Pierre does not sell items from a booth at the Luau.
A central feature of the Luau is the potluck soup. Villagers bring different ingredients to prepare this soup for the Governor, who tastes and judges it. The soup-tasting begins by talking to Mayor Lewis.
Depending upon what type of produce you supply for the soup, there will be different reactions from the Governor and Mayor Lewis. The outcome will increase or reduce friendship points with all villagers.
The Luau ends automatically after the Governor tastes the soup.

The festival features a maze where it is possible to obtain the Golden Pumpkin. Pierre has a shopping booth where you can purchase festive items including a Rarecrow #2, a Jack-O-Lantern, and the Jack-O-Lantern recipe.
The maze is located to the north of Pierre's festive shop. The maze has few dead ends and progresses in a nearly linear fashion. You have as much time as you need to navigate to the finish. Towards the end of the maze, in the northwest corner of the map, you must walk through a block of hedges to the left of a wooden sign with a question mark. Once through, you must go north through an open cavern and continue east to get to the Golden Pumpkin.
The festival ends when you leave Pelican Town.

Feast of the Winter Star
- Main page: Feast of the Winter Star
The Feast of the Winter Star takes place on the 25th of every Winter. You enter the festival by entering Pelican Town between 9am and 2pm. When the festival ends, you will be returned to The Farm at 10pm.
The main event of the Feast of the Winter Star is secret gift-giving. A random villager will be selected to give you a gift, and you are assigned a random villager to give a gift to. A week beforehand on the 18th, Mayor Lewis will send a letter telling you who your gift recipient is. You find out who is giving you a gift at the festival.
The festival ends after you receive your gift from your secret gift-giver.
Time passes differently on The Farm than inside farm buildings during festivals. This is most noticeable if the player has a shed/coop/barn full of Kegs or Preserves Jars, with one left outside to indicate when processing is done. The keg or preserves jar outside the building will advance processing time more quickly than those inside the building.
