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.


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.

  • North America: Third Sunday of June
  • Japan: Third Sunday of June
  • Europe (English/French): Third Sunday of June
  • Europe (Spanish/Italian): March 19
  • Europe (German): Ascension Day (forty days after Easter)
