Festivals are special events in Stardew Valley. Each season has two festivals. Mayor Lewis will send the player a letter in advance of each festival, describing when and where it will take place.

On the day of the festival, a pop-up on left-hand side will let you know when the festival has begun.

It would appear that time does not pass in any way during a festival, so feel free to take your time exploring and talking!

Spring

Egg Festival

Main page: Egg Festival

The Egg Festival takes place on the 13th of every Spring. You can enter the festival at Pelican Town Square between 9:00AM and 2:00PM. When you leave the time will be 10:00PM.

The villagers and the player participate in an Egg Hunt. This starts by talking to Mayor Lewis. The player must gather 9 colored eggs (in 50 seconds, real time), or else Abigail will win. If the player wins, they will receive a Straw Hat as a reward. If they already have this, they will receive Coin Icon1,000g.

There is a booth set up where the player can purchase a decorative Plush Bunny and Strawberry Seeds.png Strawberry Seeds (in the first year, you will be able to harvest Strawberry.png strawberries two times before Summer).

When the festival ends, you will be returned home at 10:00PM.

Main page: Flower Dance

The Flower Dance event takes place on the 24th of every Spring. You can enter the dance at Cindersap Forest between 9:00AM and 2:00PM. When you leave the time will be 10:00PM. It takes place across the bridge south of Wizard's Tower in the far west of the forest.

In this festival you can dance with one of the bachelors or bachelorettes if you talk to them and invite them to dance, but you must have at least four hearts of friendship with them first. You can talk to the other villagers and they will have event-related dialogue. Bachelors & bachelorettes do not have this dialogue, until you have successfully invited someone to dance, since talking to them will be treated as an invitation.

Dancing will increase friendship with your partner by 1 heart (250 points).

Once you talk to Mayor Lewis, the dance begins.

When the festival ends, you will be returned home at 10:00PM.

See Flower Dance Video.

There are multiple tables laid with spreads of food, which can't be eaten by the player, unlike in the Stardew Valley Fair.

The festival features a maze where it is possible to obtain the Golden Pumpkin. Pierre has set up a shopping booth where the player can purchase festive items including a rarecrow, a Jack-O-Lantern, and a Jack-O-Lantern recipe.

The maze is located to the north of Pierre's festive shop. The maze has few dead ends and progresses in a nearly linear fashion. The player has as much time as they need to navigate to the finish. Towards the end of the maze, in the northwest corner of the map, the player must walk through a block of hedge to the left of a wooden sign with a question mark. Once through, the player must go north through an open cavern and continue east to get to the Golden Pumpkin.
