The Sports Fair is an event in the first-generation Animal Crossing games where the player and villagers participate in various activities. There are two fairs: the fair in the fall takes place from September 22 to September 23, while the one in the spring is set from March 20 to March 21.
Tortimer, is present at the events, which take place around the wishing well. After speaking to Tortimer, the player will receive either a spring championship pennant or autumn championship pennant in Doubutsu no Mori+, or a spring medal or autumn medal in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+. Each event has its own music, which replaces the hourly music in the surrounding acres. All participating villagers wear white outfits; females have a pink stripe along the side, while males have blue stripes. In the Japanese versions, villagers also wear hats.
There are four events in the Sports Fair, each lasting for two hours.
At 9 AM, Copper heads an aerobics session (same as Morning Aerobics that four villagers participate in, mimicking his actions. The player also can participate, using the C Stick to control the motions. Occasionally, villagers will lose their place and start to panic. The event ends at 11 AM.
The foot race is an event that begins right after the aerobics session, running for two hours. Four villagers will participate, while a fifth villager acts as the starter. There is a race for each gender, each involving running around the wishing well five times. The winner and loser of each race will both show emotions after the race is over. The non-participating villagers will be on the sidelines cheering. While racing, villagers will frequently trip over, much to their embarrassment.
The ball toss is the third event in the sports fair, starting at 1 PM and ending at 3 PM, two hours later. Two teams of two villagers will repeatedly throw balls into a net, while another villager will cheer on both teams. Many of the villagers are confused by this sport, while others will find it pointless.
The final event in the sports fair is the tug-o-war, which goes for two hours starting at 3 PM. Two teams of two pull a long rope across a red line, while a fifth villager waves a red flag enthusiastically at them.
