Following up on our Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town guide list is the one for festivals! Welcome to the hottest month of the year where the beach is open and the animal events are raring to go! This is the month where you can show off your pups, chickens, cow and of course spend the night under the stars with that special someone.
This is everything happening in Mineral Town in Summer.
Summer 1 – Fetch Fest
Mineral Beach from 10:00AM – 6:00PM
Requirements: Have one adult pet (Horse excluded) to participate. On Spring 30 choose to “Enter” when Zack asks.
Benefits: +5 Friendship Points with each resident you speak to on the beach. If you win +20FP with everyone in the square. Power Berry on first win.
Celebrate the beginning of Summer with a frisbee throwing contest!
If you were able to enter the event you’ll have two tries of disc-throwing to see who manages the farthest distance. The minigame isn’t hard, just tap when the indicator hits the green part of the throwing meter. If you tap outside of the green area on the power gauge you may throw the Frisbee further, but your pet won’t always be able to catch it. As long as you stay inside the green area, your pet has a good chance of catching the disc.
Your chances of winning this festival will depend on your friendship meter with your pet.
Pro Tip: Time stops while you are on the beach, so you can spend the time catching fish. You won’t lose stamina while fishing during the festival, but you also won’t earn any tool experience on your Fishing Rod.
Summer 7 – Cluck-Cluck Clash
Rose Plaza from 10:00AM – 6:00PM
Requirements: Have an adult chicken to participate. On Summer 6 choose to “Enter” when Rick asks.
Benefits: +5 Friendship Points with each resident you speak to at the square. If you win +20FP with everyone in the square. The winning Chicken will lay Golden Eggs and up if they have more than 8 hearts.
Who’s the most ferocious chicken of them all?! In general, cockfighting is a fairly barbaric sport but in Friends of Mineral Town, it looks downright cute. It’s also important to get the best eggs and chickens possible.
The event is simple, it consists of three rounds where one chicken will need to scare the opposite chicken off the mat. To frighten the rival bird, press the Action Button to cause your chicken to jump and flap its wings. If the bird gets startled because of your chicken’s actions, it will respond with a “!” above its head and then walk for a short distance.
Timing is key here to winning and doesn’t matter on the amount of affection your chicken has for you. Take note of the direction the rival chicken is facing and listen for your chicken clucking before hitting the button.
Tip: Don’t press the action button when your chicken is too near the edge of the ring because it may run out.
Successfully do this three times to win the contest. If it’s your first time you’ll receive a golden trophy you can place anywhere inside of your house. But most importantly if you had at least 8 Hearts with the winning chicken, it will be able to lay rare Golden (100G), Platinum (180G) or X (350G) Egg.
Summer 20 – Moo Moo Festival
Rose Plaza from 10:00AM – 6:00PM
Requirements: Have an adult non-pregnant Cow (any breed) to participate. On Summer 19 choose to “Enter” when Mugi asks. 8 Heart Cow to win.
Benefits: +5 Friendship Points with each resident you speak at the square. If you win +20FP with everyone in the square. The winning Cow will be able to produce Golden Milk and up.
There’s really not much for you to do in this contest because all the work will have to have been done before. Get your cow affection up to 8 hearts by petting and brushing them everyday. You probably won’t be able to do this in your first year.
If you successfully manage to do this you’ll receive a golden trophy that you can place anywhere inside of your house. The winning cow will as well be able to produce Golden, Platinum or X Milk.
Note: There are four types of cows (normal, Coffee, Fruit, and Strawberry). You’ll have to win this festival with each type of cow to get all the milk varieties.
Summer 24 – Fireworks Festival
Mineral Beach from 6:00PM – 9:00PM
At 6PM head over to Mineral Beach to end the Summer with a Fireworks show!
If you’re not married speak to a potential marriage candidate with a Green Heart of affection or higher and they’ll invite you to watch the fireworks with them. If you are married, you will watch the fireworks after talking to your spouse on the beach. At this point, you won’t be able to watch the fireworks with anyone but your spouse.
If you’re unable to invite anyone or you choose not to, you’ll watch the fireworks alone. Cue sad violin music.
Pro Tip: As with the Fetch Fest time stops while you are on the beach, so you can spend your time catching fish. You won’t lose stamina while fishing during the festival, but as usual you also won’t earn any tool experience on your Fishing Rod.
There’s so many events in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town that we’ve decided to split it up by seasons! We hope you enjoyed Summer and you check out the Festival Guides for Spring, Autumn and Winter here as well.
Our other Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town guides include relationship guides for all the bachelors and bachelorettes. As well as power berry locations and what crops to grow in which season. Be sure to give them a read if you haven’t gotten to them all already!
