Obon is an event in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Animal Crossing: New Horizons that occurs in late summer.

Appearances[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Obon occurs only in Japanese towns on either August 15 or 16. During the event, the player may visit the event plaza, where a cardboard cutout for the event is placed, and receive a gift from Isabelle, which can be either an Eggplant Cow or a Cucumber Horse.

If August 15 falls on a Saturday, Isabelle will be standing near the Town Hall, since Nat will be using the Plaza for the Bug Off. If it falls on a Sunday, the Fireworks Show will occur instead on this day, and Obon will fall on August 16.

In New Horizons[edit]

Although Obon does not appear in Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a standard event, it appears as a Nook Shopping seasonal event beginning in the 1.11.0 Free Update. From September 12 to September 21, the player can purchase a Cucumber Horse and an Eggplant Cow from Nook Shopping.
