August events and seasonal items

Animal Crossing New Horizons player and villagers celebrate fireworks show

August is relatively light on major events, but players in both hemispheres will find that their islands are hosting one Fireworks every Sunday evening between 19 and midnight. Players can create custom Animal Crossing: New Horizons fireworks and win prizes from Redd’s raffle. The rather unscrupulous fox makes a special appearance, leaving his boatload of dubiously sourced artwork to host the raffle.

By spending 500 bells, players can enter the lottery to win a variety of items. This includes sparklers, fireworks, balloons, edible frozen treats, candy canes and several varieties of Boba Tea. Best of all, players can participate every weekend instead of just once.

Finally, bug catchers in the northern hemisphere can also participate Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Bug-Off event hosted by Flick. Players can enter contests that catch bugs between 9.00 and at 6 p.m., and earn points that can be exchanged for some nice bay-themed items. The Bug-Off happens regularly throughout the year, but Southern Hemisphere players will have to wait until January 2024 to participate.

All in all, August doesn’t have much to offer creature collectors, but the weekly fireworks show is sure to bring some much-needed excitement. Players will find it worth their time to return to theirs Animal Crossing: New Horizons islands in August 2023.
