|Mochi Bonanza Festival|
|Date||Spring 1st (annual)|
|Time||6:00 PM to 12:00 AM|
|Prizes||9x Mochi, Friendship Points|
Every year on Spring 1st, the Mochi Bonanza Festival is held in Mineral Town’s plaza to celebrate the New Year.
This non-competitive festival is one of the only times you can get Mochi in the game, so don’t miss it!
Attending the Mochi Bonanza Festival is simple: just enter the plaza after 6:00 PM on Spring 1st of each year.
To get to Rose Plaza, head east from the path above your farm until you reach the very end, and go up.
There are no additional requirements to be able to join the festival, and you can enjoy the event with the rest of Mineral Town’s residents.
Just make sure you have an empty slot available in your backpack so you can carry home any prizes you receive later on.
The Mochi Bonanza is a short mochi-pounding session where the player can make mochi with the other villagers.
There’s no minigame or competition that takes place during this festival.
Simply attending will award you with the rare Mochi ingredient.
To start the Mochi Bonanza, speak to Mayor Thomas and select “Begin” when he asks you if you’re ready to play.
After a short cutscene, the festival will be over and you’ll wake up the next morning in your farmhouse.
Just showing up to the festival will award you with 9 Mochi, which will appear in your backpack the next day. You can use this Mochi for recipes or gifts.
Talking to any villager during the festival will also add +5 Friendship Points.
You can no longer interact with anyone after Mayor Thomas starts the Mochi Bonanza, so make sure you’ve spoken to everyone before you trigger the main event.
