As your island in Animal Crossing New Horizons progresses to 5-star perfection, you’ve got all your favorite villagers and filled up your museum, things will start to slow down as far as island life goes. Once you hit that point, the exciting portions that bring you back to the game are holidays and events to bring some spice to the otherwise relaxing time on your getaway.
Some holidays have already passed us by, such as the Bunny Day event, giving us a glimpse into the format for future holidays. With week-long events and other things to keep us busy with each new update, we don’t know for sure if more holidays could be added in future DLC or changes, but for now, here are all the holidays in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

These separate events occur all throughout the year on top of the holidays themselves to keep us extra busy.
