Explorer's Day is an event in the Animal Crossing series that occurs on the second Monday of October. It appears in Animal Crossing and the North American versions of Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Explorers Day is based on Columbus Day, a holiday commemorating the landing of explorer Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 14, 1492.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

On Explorer's Day, Tortimer can be found outside of the town hall. If the player speaks to him, they will receive a Bottled Ship.

In City Folk[edit]

In North American towns in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Tortimer appears outside town hall and will give the player a Sailboat Model if spoken to. After the discontinuation of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in 2014, the Sailboat Model can only be obtained in the North American version of the game.
