Animal Crossing: New Horizons May Day Update Arriving This Week

Animal Crossing New Horizons May Day 2021

Now that Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been out for over one year, there will begin to be some familiar events and such added to the game as the seasons roll on. Of course, the developers would like to mix things up a bit to keep the content fresh, which looks to be the case with the upcoming update that brings with it the May Day event, Wedding Season, and more.

In a recent post on Nintendo’s website, the details about the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons update were outlined, giving players the rundown on what to expect over the next few months. For starters, the May Day event will be taking place from April 29th until May 7th, with International Museum Day arriving later in the month on May 18 and running through the remainder of May. Following this, Wedding Season will run throughout June and there will be a host of seasonal items up for grabs.

Here’s more on each of the new and fun things that will be part of the upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons update:

  • May Day (April 29 – May 7)
    • Use your May Day Ticket and tour a rather interesting island between April 29 – May 7. These tickets are single-use, so plan your trip accordingly. Have a good flight!
  • International Museum Day (May 18 – May 31)
    • To celebrate International Museum Day, players can take part in a Stamp Rally between May 18-31. After talking to Blathers and receiving a special stamp car, players can enjoy viewing fish, insects, fossils, and art while collecting stamps at the various museum exhibits.
  • Wedding Season (June 1 – June 30)
    • Since Reese and Cyrus got married in the month of June, it’s now their tradition to take weddings photos on Harvey’s Island every June. Meet up with them on the island and help take adorable photos. A few decorations go a long way!
    • Also, wedding season-themed furniture and fashion items will be available in Nook Shopping and Able Sisters during the entire month. Check them out before they rotate out.
  • Seasonal Items
    • As always, please check Nook Shopping for new seasonal items during May and June. You’ll find a selection of items based on Mother’s Day, Cheese Rolling, and more!

As with all content updates for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the upcoming one will be free of charge. It will also be arriving on Wednesday, April 28th for all players to download.
