Harvest Festival
Occurs 4th Thursday in November
Appearances Animal Crossing,
Animal Crossing: City Folk

The Harvest Festival happens once a year on Thanksgiving (4th Thursday in November).

During the Harvest Festival, Franklin the turkey will hide behind obstacles (such as trees) and wait for you to bring him pieces of silverware from the banquet. For each piece you bring, you will receive one piece of the Harvest Series of furniture (including the wallpaper/carpet). You really cannot eat the food, though.

Franklin is unusual among Animal Crossing residents and visitors in that he is entirely static; unlike the other visitors, such as Saharah or Joan, he does not walk around the town. Instead, Franklin will appear in his hiding place and will disappear soon after the player moves the camera out of view. He will then reappear instantly in a different hiding place, so that sometimes it can appear that he has jumped ahead of you somehow! Some players may be able to tell when Franklin disappears as there can be a slight shudder to the screen as the game reloads (and puts him in a different place).

Franklin hides behind a sign.

While in one hiding place, Franklin will only accept one "knife and fork" set, so if you wish to give him another the player must move away from the hiding place until Franklin disappears, and search for him again.
