September October November

A player meeting Jack, the NPC behind the Halloween event.

October is an autumn month. Halloween is upon us, and the Nooklings' Shop and Able Sisters are feeling the spirit! Prepare for the festivities with costumes, candy, and interior decorating. The leaves and grass will begin to shift to fall colors, giving that crisp autumnal feeling.


  • Halloween Items (All month) - The Nooklings' Shop will have the Spooky Series in stock throughout the month. Drop by to decorate your room to fit the holiday spirit! The Able Sisters also join the fun, as they'll have spooky costumes and clothing on sale.
  • Autumn Moon (Closest full moon to the Autumnal Equinox) - Look to the sky and appreciate that glorious orb of rock orbiting our planet. Drop by the Plaza to get a Wheat Bundle from Isabelle. If you own a European version of the game, you'll be given a Veggie Basket. Koreans will get a Songpyeon. Japanese players will receive a Dango.
  • Explorer's Day (Second Monday) United States - Celebrate Christopher Columbus' journey to North America today with a Sailboat Model from Isabelle.
  • Fishing Tourney (Second Saturday) - This event occurs on the second Saturday of the month, and runs from 9am to 6pm. This is the only way to obtain the Fish series.
  • Halloween (October 31) - Find Jack and give him lollipops from villagers to get furniture from the Spooky series and Creepy series. See the main page for more details.
