Spring Festivals

Spring Seasonal Festivals

Spring 01: New Years Day
On the first day of the year, go to the Beach between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. All of the residents get together to pound rice into Rice Cake (mochi). At the end of the festival Thomas will supply you with Rice Cake. You can ship it to complete your Shipped Items list, or cook recipes with it.

Spring 14: Spring Thanksgiving
Today you can give your sweetheart some Cookies if you own the Kitchen and the Oven utensil. You can make them by combining an Egg, Flour, and Butter. Give the Cookies to as many of the bachelorettes as you want and you will increase their Love Points by 1000. Give cookies to other girls (and guys) if you want to chuckle at their reactions.

If you are playing the girl version of HMDS, the bachelors who have Purple hearts or higher will stop by your farmhouse one-by-one to deliver their own Cookies. You will meet with Marlin if you leave your house between 6:00 am and 7:00 am, Gustafa between 8:00 am and 9:00 am, and Rock from 10:00 am and 11:00 am. In the afternoon you can meet with Carter between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm, Griffin from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, and Skye between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm. You will have to go inside your house and then exit at the times specified to meet with the boy. If any of the boys are at a Green heart or higher you will be gifted with Chocolate Cookies instead.

Spring 18: Duck Festival
On the 17th, Popuri will meet you at your farmhouse door and ask if you would like to submit a Duck for the festival. If you select your Duck, she will take it away until the 18th. Go to the Beach between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm to star the judging. If your Duck wins then it will increase it's level and you will earn 100 Farm Degree points.

Summer 22

Spring 22: Cooking Contest
This day is one of the few times you will meet up with the jolly Gourmet, the cooking expert from Mineral Town. Owning the Kitchen and utensils is a must if you want to participate. Visit the Beach between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm and talk to the Gourmet. He will tell you the utensil that you are required to make a dish. You then must leave the Beach and return to your house to cook a dish from the category.

Return back to the Beach before 6:00 pm with your cooked dish and give it to the Gourmet. Your selection will then be judged against the 4 other participants. You can earn 100 Farm Degree points if you win the contest.

There are 6 categories you could be requested to enter. There are no penalties if you do not win.

The original North American version of the game has a glitch in this festival. The first contest you enter a dish in will automatically be saved and carried over to the next festival. After your first cooking festival you won't be able to enter it anymore.

Example: The first festival you enter is for the Mixer, so you give Gourmet a Mixed Juice. A year later the cooking festival category is Oven, but Gourmet will not accept your Cake. You start the judging anyway and discover your Mixed Juice from the previous year is automatically entered into the contest. Since it is the wrong category you'll be disqualified. The same thing will occur every year until the Mixer category comes back up, when the Mixed Juice you entered will be accepted as a qualified dish.

In HMDS Cute, there is a problem with its cooking festival. When you finally reach the Oven category the game will lock up during the judging of the recipe entries. You will have to skip the Oven cooking festival in order to proceed.
