The Stardew Valley Fair is a festival that takes place on Tuesday, the 16th of Fall every year. You attend the fair by entering Pelican Town between 9am and 3pm. When you leave the festival, you will be returned to The Farm at 10pm.

On the day of the Festival, you cannot enter Pelican Town until 9am. Every home and shop outside the town square is "locked" and cannot be entered before the festival.

There are several games where you can earn Token.pngStar Tokens, a currency that can be exchanged for prizes at the Shop near the entrance to the Bus Stop. The maximum number of tokens that can be held is 9,999.

It is worth noting that you can only purchase one of each item from the shop every year. Therefore, the maximum number of Star Tokens that may be used is 3,400 (1,400 if you have already purchased the Stardrop). The Shop will be fully stocked again the following year, with the exception of the Stardrop which may only be purchased once.

The Fair also has a Grange Display contest where products of the farm can be shown to gain Star Tokens. Talk to Mayor Lewis when ready to have the products judged. All of your Grange Display items can be picked up after judging, but they will NOT be automatically returned to your inventory. If you leave the items behind in the Grange Display, they will be lost.

North of the fair by the fountains, Gus can be found cooking Survival Burgers, which you can eat to refill your energy bar, but this won't be noticeable until exiting the festival.

The festival ends when you leave Pelican Town.

Attractions

Booth Name Cost Description
Stardew Valley Fair Fishing Minigame.png
Stardew Valley Fair Fishing Minigame 2.png
Fishing Minigame Gold.png50g Play the Fishing Minigame to catch fish. Each caught fish gives between 12 and 25 points. Any non-fish item caught gives 1 point. You will get bonus points for perfect catches. This is the most cost effective way to earn Star Tokens. It is possible to make over 200 Star Tokens per Gold.png50g spent. You can play as many times as you have money for.
Stardew Valley Fair Slingshot Minigame.png
Stardew Valley Fair Slingshot Minigame 2.png
Slingshot Minigame Gold.png50g Shoot the targets with your Slingshot. Each target gives different points — red targets give 1 point, blue targets give 2 points, and purple targets give 5 points. At the end, you get a point multiplier based on your accuracy. An accuracy of 100% provides a 4x multiplier. It is possible to win 250 Star Tokens per Gold.png50g spent. You can play as many times as you have money for.
Stardew Valley Fair Smashing Stone.png
Smashing Stone Free At the Smashing Stone you can test your strength by clicking the stone at the right moment when the bar hits the top or bottom. For hitting the top or bottom, you get one Star Token.
Stardew Valley Fair Token Seller.png
Token Seller Gold.png50g per Token.pngToken At the Star Token Seller, you can buy Star Tokens for Gold.png50g each. This is the least cost effective way to earn tokens, but time-wise, it is the quickest way.
Stardew Valley Fair Clairvoyant Booth.png
Clairvoyant Booth Gold.png100g At the Clairvoyance Booth, the Fortune Teller will tell you events from the future for Gold.png100g once. This information is based on the Social Status you have with the villagers. She will tell you something about whichever two villagers are at the top of your Social menu.
Stardew Valley Fair Spinning Wheel.png
Spinning Wheel Varies At the Spinning Wheel, you can bet Star Tokens on whether the spinner will land on green or orange.

Players can quickly earn the 3400 star tokens required to purchase all items in the shop by betting green, since the mathematical probability the wheel will land on green is 75%, versus 25% for orange. The probability is not a guarantee for any single roll, however. For efficient profit while protecting against losses, always bet half of your current stars.

Grange Display

To participate in the showcase, bring up to nine items to put in the grange display which best showcase the players abilities. The display will be judged on the quality and diversity of the items, and is rewarded with star tokens based on the place achieved.

Games can still be played at the fair after the grange display is judged.

Place Prize Points required
First Place Token.png1,000 90
Disqualified Token.png750 0 (include Mayor Lewis's shorts)
Second Place Token.png500 75
Third Place Token.png200 60
Fourth Place Token.png50 <60

Scoring

The points are calculated as follows[1]:

Base Points

14 points are awarded automatically.

Number of Items

Points based on how many items are submitted, according to the formula: 2x-9 (Where X is the number of items on display).

Number of items Points awarded
9 9
8 7
7 5
6 3
5 1
4 -1
3 -3
2 -5
1 -7
0 -9

It is always better to try and fill all nine spots, even if the items submitted are trash, since leaving any spot empty will lessen the overall score.

Categories

There are eight categories of items recognized by the Fair: Animal Products, Artisan Goods, Cooking, Fish, Foraging (including Flowers and Tree Saps), Fruits, Minerals, and Vegetables. Each category represented in the display earns 5 points, up to a maximum of 30 points. This means only six of these categories need to be filled to maximize the score.

Below are the items that the Fair will recognize in each category. Any items which do not fall into any of these categories will not earn the additional 5 points.

Sell Price & Quality

A number of points for each item are awarded based on its sell price and quality, with a maximum of 8 points per item. The sell price used in-game is the actual sell price, not the base sell price. For example, a gold-quality item with a base sell price of 200g would earn points for having an actual sell price of 300g AND for being gold quality.

Note: Profession bonuses (which affect in-game sell prices) are not included in the calculations on this page.

Sell Price Normal Quality Silver Quality Gold Quality Iridium Quality
0+ 1 2 3 5
20+ 2 3 4 6
90+ 3 4 5 7
200+ 4 5 6 8

400+ 6 6 6 8
One possible 123 point display

Assuming that nine items, each worth 8 points, are submitted and that the items represent at least six unique categories, the highest theoretical score obtainable is 125 (14 + 72 + 9 + 30). However, getting a score of 125 is not currently possible because 8-point items don't exist in all categories. Out of the eight categories that exist, only 4 contain 8-point items: Animal Products, Artisan Goods, Foraging, and Fruits. In order to use items from 6 unique categories, 2 must be chosen from categories that do not contain 8-point items. The highest value Fish item is iridium-quality cockles, at 7 points. The highest value Vegetable item is iridium-quality fiddlehead fern, at 7 points. Because of this, the current highest score obtainable is 123.

Once the judging is complete, make sure to retrieve the items from the table, as they are not automatically returned.

Trivia/Bugs

  • If you go northwest from Gus to the edge of the flags, a secret opening lets you escape the designated area for the fair. It is unknown if this is intentional or a bug.
    • If you go north to the playground, behind it at the cliff behind the right tree, you can right-click the cliff and a message will appear in saying "Please stand at the red arrow". This is the same message you get from the Smashing Stone game. The same message can be obtained if you stand above JoJaMart and face a cliff again.
    • Likewise, if you walk around the area from Gus and head back into town to the barred stairs next to Pierre's shop, face the right cliff next to the entrance and in the direction of the town, you can eat Gus' burgers with either left or right click.
    • If you go over to the wood bridge over the river that leads to JojaMart, you can leave it in the middle and walk on the water. Going north up the river will allow you to leave the area, giving you the normal message asking if you want to exit the festival.
  • Easter Egg: If you place Mayor Lewis' Purple Shorts in the Grange Display, he will become upset and give you 750 star tokens to keep his secret. Marnie will also comment about the "purple lettuce" in your display.
  • Bug: The Fortune Teller will refer to the Dwarf as "she" even though the Dwarf's gender in data files (Content\Data\NPCDispositions.xnb) is "undefined." This is due to the way the gender check in the code is written, with all non-males defaulting to "she" and no checks for "undefined" genders.
  • Bug: In the fishing fair-game, if you cast a very short distance (thus cancelling the cast), the game doesn't allow your character to move until you catch a fish. Because the cast was cancelled, this never happens, and you just stand there unable to move as the timer ticks down. Pressing Esc causes the timer to go to 0:00, which causes the game to be forever stuck in the minigame. This is a bug known on PC, but untested on other platforms.
  • Bug: (PC Tested) If you stand in the spot Mayor Lewis returns to after judging your display, you will become stuck in Mayor Lewis and need to restart the day.
  • Trivia: If you speak to Caroline, she will say that Pierre has "been setting aside the best-looking produce for weeks in preparation" for the fair. However, his grange display contains produce that would spoil after sitting for weeks.
