July is a summer month. It's a good time to make lots of money from bugs and fish, so take out your nets and fishing rods! 


  • Rainy Season (June 16 to July 5) - Expect lots of rainy days during this time period! A perfect chance to catch lots of rare bugs and fish. At some point, your mom will send you an umbrella during this period.
  • Starcrossed Day (July 7) Japan - Also known as Tanabata, this Japanese-exclusive event is the only way to get the Bamboo Grass furniture item.
  • Tanning Season (July 16 to September 15) - Looking to get a tan? Now's your chance! Stick around outside on a sunny day and you, too, can get a lovely tan!
  • Bug-Off (Third Saturday) - Go out there and catch some bugs! Nat will be waiting at the Plaza. Bring him bugs based on rarity, size, and color. Getting a high score in this tournament is the only way to net yourself the Insect Series. See the main page for more details.
  • Summer clothing from Mom (Third Saturday) - You will receive a letter with an article of clothing from your mom on this day. How sweet!
