The Harvest Moon Festival, known as Autumn Moon in PAL regions, occurs in Animal Crossing, in Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf in September or October. The Harvest Moon Festival, like all holidays, is absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World for Nintendo DS.

The date of this event varies each year, as it occurs on the date of the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox.


Animal Crossing

Tortimer can give players a model of the moon. During the event, players can talk to their villagers and stand near the pond to stare at the moon's reflection.

Animal Crossing: City Folk

The Harvest Moon festival varies depending on the player's (or current host's) region. In the US and European versions of the game, it is referred to as the Autumn Moon, while in the Japanese version, the event is referred to as Tsukimi (お月見 Otsukimi?).

Tortimer can be seen near the Town Hall from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. He will give the player a gift depending on the region.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Isabelle is present in the Plaza from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m., giving a player a gift depending on the player's region. The standee in the Plaza is also different between regions. In Japanese versions, a table with dango on it is being overlooked by a mountain and a moon, where the player can make pictures from there. In the North American version, it's a scarecrow in a farm field where the player can pose for pictures overlooking the Autumn Moon.

In the Japanese version, the event is referred to as Tsukimi (お月見 Otsukimi?), while the Korean version refers to it as Chuseok (추석 Chuseok).
