Autumn in the Animal Crossing series starts on the 1st of September and ends on the 30th of November. During autumn, the trees begin to change color to an orange-brown and the grass frequently change color and turns dull. Insects and rarer fish start to disappear, being replaced with cheaper fish and insects such as the Pike and Monarch butterfly, making autumn one of the more quiet seasons in the series, rivaled by winter.


Below is a list of events found in autumn. It contains what happens in each event, what game the event happens in and when the event happens.

(First Monday in September Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf)- In Animal Crossing, the player can talk to Tortimer near the Wishing Well to receive a Shop Model. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, the player will instead receive the Picnic Basket from the mayor outside the Town Hall.

  • La-Di-Day (Second Saturday in September and November Animal Crossing: Wild World)- On this day, the player can hear villagers' suggestions for a new town tune. After the tune is sung to the player, they can decide whether or not they want it saved as the town's new melody.
  • Yay Day (Fourth Sunday in September and November Animal Crossing: Wild World)- Villagers swap compliments with the player, and may refer to them infrequently after the event.
  • Fishing Tourney (Third Saturday of September, October and November, City Folk and New Leaf)- Chip, the fishing expert, will set up a stall outside Town Hall, challenging the player to catch a certain type of fish or the best type of fish. The winner will receive a trophy.
  • Flea Market (First Saturday of September, October, November, Wild World, Fourth Sunday of September, October and November, City Folk)- Players and villagers have the opportunity to sell items inside their homes.

More events will be added as they happen.

Trees start to go brown.


Fish and Insects[edit]

These are the fish and bugs that appear during autumn.




The weather in autumn consists of a mixture of clear, sunny days and some patches of rain. Snow will begin to fall towards the end of November, but will not stick to the ground until early December, in winter. In New Leaf, thunderstorms will dissipate around September, giving way for regular rain.

In September, (specifically the 8th in New Leaf) trees will begin to turn from bright green to a dull, musky green. In October (the 17th in New Leaf), trees will then turn a bright orange/brown color. Grass follows the same color pattern as trees, by turning a dull green color in September, then a dull purple in October. In November, the grass becomes a very dull pinkish-gray, and then in December, the ground, weeds, and clover all turn gray. Dandelions will disappear until next summer. The trees will often gradually change color.
