Winter 8: Fishing Tournament

This festival challenges you to catch the largest fish during the festival time limit. Enter Olive Town between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm to participate in the tournament, then go to the beach area to talk to Norman to begin. If you want to use any fish bait, attach it before you talk to Norman, as you won't have access to your inventory once the contest begins.

You have 2 minutes (120 seconds) to catch the largest fish you possibly can. You'll have to cast your line in the ocean and hope you get lucky enough to catch a whopper of a fish. As you're battling against the most extraordinary fisher people of the town, you're not going to win with a measly Sardine. Having a well-upgraded fishing pole and a Fishing Skill of rank 5 or higher will help to ensure your victory, though it's not guaranteed!

First place is a Gold Fishing Trophy and 5000 G. Second place is a Silver Fishing Trophy and 3000 G. Third place is a Copper Fishing Trophy and 1000 G. In year 2 or later, the prize money awards become 10,000 G (1st), 6000 G (2nd), and 3000 G (3rd).

This festival ends at 7:00 pm.

This icy festival shows off the artistic abilities of the various families in Olive Town. Enter the town between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm, where you'll find the villagers around the beach and tourist dock area. You'll discover some pretty ice sculptures too! You can either browse through the statues on your own or with a date.

This festival ends at 7:00 pm.
