May Day[edit]

The morning announcement.

May Day is an event held from May 1st to May 7th. It is announced a few days beforehand on the island's bulletin board. To engage in the event, you must speak with Tom Nook at Resident Services. He explains that "May Day is a day when we express our gratitude to those who work hard." As a thank you for all the work hard that has gone into making your island great, he made a special May Day Tour. The tickets are left at the Airport.

To go on the tour, speak to Orville at the Airport and choose the I wanna fly! and the Use May Day Ticket options. You cannot bring anything with you; all items you currently have in your inventory are held at the counter.

May Day Tour[edit]

Rover, the special character for this event.

You arrive on an island with a hedge maze. You must navigate through it by using items you find on your way–tools, fruit, and crafting materials. If you are stuck, talk to Wilbur and he will provide hints. If you get stuck or want to start over, call the ! Rescue Service. For 100 Nook Miles, the entire maze will be reset and your inventory will be cleared. You keep the prize if you reset after reaching the goal. Besides the prize, you may find 8 Bell Vouchers on the island. You will only take the prize and any collected Bell Vouchers back to your island; any bushes, flowers or trees in your inventory will disappear after you leave this special island. Both the prize and Bell Vouchers will be delivered by mail immediately.
Rover makes a special appearance at this event. He is waiting at the maze's goal, where he congratulates you and gives you the prize when talked to: Rover's Briefcase.

Navigating the maze.

Navigation tips[edit]

  • You can get rid of trees in two ways - chop them down with an axe or use a shovel after eating a piece of fruit.
  • To remove the tree stump, use a shovel.
  • You can break stones if you hit them with a shovel after eating a piece of fruit.
  • You can jump across 1-tile wide holes.
  • Use the axe rather than eating fruit to get all the possible items.
