August September October

A player celebrating the Autumn Moon.

September is the first of the autumn months. Getting away from the summer heat, a lot of bugs and fish no longer appear this month. The hum of cicadas will be replaced by crickets, and the lush green will slowly turn into a crisper, darker color.


  • Weeding Day (September 3) Japan - The Gardening Shop will be closed on this day. If the player pulled all the weeds in the  town before the holiday, Leif will award the player with a special topiary in the public works projects at the event plaza. If 30+ weeds are pulled in the town or another town, the player will be awarded with an exclusive item from Lief.
  • Labor Day (First Monday) United States - Celebrate social and economic achievements made by American workers on this day. Head over to the plaza to get a Picnic Basket from Isabelle.
  • Tanning Season (July 16 to September 15) - Head outside and soak in the sun! After a few hours, you might notice a difference in your complexion.
  • 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 event plaza to get a Wheat Bundle from Isabelle. In the European version of the game, the player will be given a veggie basket. Koreans will get a Songpyeon. Japanese players will receive a Dango.
  • Bug-Off (Third Saturday) -  The host is Nat, a chameleon. He rates the bugs the player gives him based on size, rarity, color and luster. Smaller and duller bugs will net fewer points.
