Flower Festival.jpg

The Flower Dance is a festival that takes place on the 24th of every Spring. You enter the dance by entering Cindersap Forest between 9am and 2pm. (You cannot enter the forest before 9am.)

The dance takes place in the far west of the forest, across the bridge that is south of the Wizard's Tower. This area is accessible only during the Flower Dance.

On the day of the Festival, every home and shop in Stardew Valley is "locked" and cannot be entered.

During this festival, you can dance with one of the bachelors or bachelorettes. You must talk to them (twice) and invite them to dance, but they will refuse unless you have at least four hearts of friendship with them. You can talk to the other villagers and they will have event-related dialogue.

Dancing with an NPC will increase friendship with your partner by 1 heart (250 points). In a multiplayer game, players may also dance with each other. If you are divorced, your ex will refuse your dance proposal and respond with angry dialogue instead.

Once you talk to Mayor Lewis, the dance begins. After the dance, the festival ends and you are returned to The Farm at 10pm.


Pierre has a booth from which he sells the following items.

  • It is technically possible, though not easy, to get 4 hearts of friendship with every marriage candidate in the first year.
  • After you are married, you can choose to dance with other partners. Your spouse may dance with someone else as well.
  • Talking to Haley before starting the Flower Dance will result in her saying that she is "practicing her dance moves". However, her sprite appears to just be wandering around aimlessly.
