What Is the May Day Event?

May Day is taking place between April 29 and May 7 in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The event consists of an exciting trip to a completely new island. On the island, players will be able to take part in the May Day maze.

Be careful though, the ticket to the maze is a one time use deal, so use it wisely.

How to Play the Maze

Below, we'll talk you through step by step how to access the maze, as well as taking a look at the maze itself.

Step 1

Upon loading up your game, and after installing the latest update and during the May Day event, Isabelle will greet you with news all about May Day.
