The Acorn Festival is a chance to get special furniture and items by giving acorns to Cornimer.
What is the Acorn Festival?
The Acorn Festival is a special event that takes place on the second week of October. During the Acorn Festival, check under the non-fruit, non-pine trees in your town every day, because some of them might have three acorns below them. Be sure to keep the ground clear around your trees, because if there are things on the ground where the acorns would appear, an acorn can't appear there and you'll lose a potential acorn. Collect the non-rotten acorns and give them to Cornimer, who stands outside of the Town Hall. Just talk to him and he will ask if you have any acorns to give him. Say that you do, and then you can move your acorns from your inventory into Cornimer's inventory. If you give him any rotten acorns in a batch, he will throw away all of the acorns in that batch, so be careful!
How do I get ready for the Acorn Festival?
Plant as many non-pine, non-fruit trees in your town as possible before the week of the acorn festival. Make sure each acre in your town has at least one non-pine, non-fruit tree, to maximize your chances of getting acorns. The acorns will appear randomly, so the more trees you have, the more likely it is that you will get lots of acorns.
What do I do with the acorns?
Cornimer stands outside of the Town Hall every day during the Acorn Festival, and he wants non-rotten acorns. You can give him batches of acorns. Just don't put any rotten acorns into the batch, or Cornimer will throw out the entire batch!
