Summer Jamboree

The Summer Jamboree is the first summer festival. Launch barrels into the water to defeat the competition and win the prize.

Summer Jamboree Overview

The Summer Jamboree takes place on Summer 14 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 Summer Jamboree, 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 between the hotel and the beach. If you can't find someone, be sure to check the map.

How to Participate

To start the Summer Jamboree barrel tossing competition, talk to Manuela at the dock. You can choose to do training if you want to learn how the minigame works. Both the training and the minigame consist of three rounds, with three barrel tosses each.

During the minigame, a line will move up and down a gauge. Press Y to stop the line, but keep in mind that there seems to be a slight delay before the line stops, and the delay might be random.


The prizes for the Summer Jamboree are a trophy that you can place as a furniture item, as well as a cash prize.
