The Pet Derby takes place on the last day of Spring. Try to win the race with your pet (or a rental pet)!
Pet Derby Overview
The Pet Derby takes place on Spring 28 (the last day of Spring) each year. You can attend the event in Olive Town any time between 10AM and 7PM that day. When the event is over, you automatically return to your farm at 7PM, so be sure to take care of your livestock and crops before you begin.
Once you enter Olive Town between 10AM and 7PM on the day of the Pet Derby, time will not pass, so you have plenty of time to talk to everyone and give people gifts for the day before you start the festival. Most people will be in the town square or playground. If you can't find someone, be sure to check the map.
How to Participate
To start the Pet Derby race, talk to Georg in the middle of the town square. You can choose to participate in the event with one of your pets if you have any, or with a rental pet.
