Below, we have everything you need to know about when the next Cherry Blossoms Event is in Animal Crossing and what we can expect.

When Is The Cherry Blossoms Event?


Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Cherry Blossoms Event will take place over one of two periods, depending on whether your island is in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.

If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, the event will take place between April 1st and April 10th, coinciding with Bunny Day.

If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, the event will take place between October 1st and October 10th.

For the most part, Animal Crossing events tend to be uniform and often don't change in-between years.

Exclusive Recipies

Last year's Cherry Blossoms Event introduced a series of limited-time items that players could craft using Cherry Blossom Petals, a limited-time resource.

The DIY Recipies for these items could be found by popping floating balloons throughout the event's duration and there is no reason why they wouldn't return in 2021.
