Animal Crossing: New Horizons — Complete Upcoming Events Calendar

Nature Day has come and gone in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The update brought two new merchants to your island and a few bonuses that you can still learn more about in our Nature Day guide, though some things the holiday offered (like the bonus Nook Miles for special activities) are now over. The brand new May Day event, which went live last Friday, is still running however–May Day will run through tomorrow, May 7, giving you the chance to go on a special Mystery Tour and complete a May Day maze for a prize. There are plenty of other events planned for the near-future, as well.

You can see what other events Nintendo has planned for Animal Crossing: New Horizons over the next two months below. Updates for the hit Nintendo Switch game will bring not only new features and visitors, but also a series of events that dot the calendar from now through the end of June. Nature Day might be over and May Day may have just begun, but still on the way are International Museum Day and Wedding Season. Here’s when each one starts and what we know about it so far.

Nature Day (Ended)

  • Dates: April 23 – May 4

The one event we already knew was coming, thanks to a Nintendo Direct mini broadcast, was a celebration of Earth Day, which takes place a day earlier on April 22. Specific details and dates hadn’t been shared previously except that Leif would return in some capacity. Nature Day began on April 23, and saw special Nook Miles+ objectives that involve planting trees, watering flowers, and taking advantage of a new feature–the ability to plant shrubs. The event officially ended on May 4.

May Day Tour (Ongoing)

  • Dates: May 1-7

During this week-long event, beginning May 1, you’ll get a one-time ticket–the May Day Ticket–to head out on a May Day Tour from the airport. Nintendo says that the location you’ll head to will be different from the usual mystery tour deserted islands, and based on the video, it appears you’ll have to navigate a hedge maze. Nintendo also teases, “A special visitor who looks familiar might also be there…” Find out who that visitor is and how to get their prize in our May Day maze guide. Just make sure you jump at the opportunity, as you’ll only have through tomorrow, May 7, to take part.

International Museum Day (Planned)

  • Dates: May 18-31

The museum is set to receive an expansion for art as part of a New Horizons update that brings back returning character Redd. Starting on May 18, there will be a Stamp Rally event that equips you with a stamp card that you can fill out by browsing the fish, insects, and fossils you’ve collected. Collecting stamps will lead to an unspecified reward.

Wedding Season (Planned)

  • Dates: June 1-30

During June, you can visit Harv’s island to encounter Reese and Cyrus, a married couple and another returning set of characters from the series’ past. Given the photography-themed nature of Harv’s island, you’ll be decorating a studio and taking anniversary photos. Rewards include “wedding-themed items.” (This wouldn’t be the first time the game helped facilitate a wedding of some sort.)
