Father's Day is an event where the player's Dad writes to the player. It usually occurs in the third Sunday of June, however, like Mother's Day, the date is different in some regions.


In Animal Crossing[edit]

Father's Day falls on the third Sunday of June. The player receives a letter from Dad, even though he is not quite as avid as a writer as Mom. If the player talks to Tortimer, he will give them a locomotive model.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk and Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

Dad will send the player a letter with a red carnation attached, similar to receiving a pink carnation on Mother's Day.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, throughout the month of June the player will be able to purchase the Thank-You Dad Mug from the Nook Shopping service.


Father's Day is dependent on the region of the game (North American, Japan, European, or Korean). For the European release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, it is dependent on the language of the game and not on the country set. For example, if the country set in the 3DS is Germany but the language set is Spanish, Father's Day will fall on March 19.
