  • Date: 23rd of Summer and Winter
  • Venue: Chesnut Town Main Square  (Talk to Sam who's standing by the fountain)

On the morning of fishing festival, Sam will drop by your house and inform you that it is fishing festival and he would like to invite you to participate.

Winning cutscene:


You should try to start right at 10am as the time will not stop or rollback like previous Harvest Moon titles. Therefore participating early will give you more time to fish for points.

Try to win the first fishing festival. Fishing festival after that are difficult to win, especially in the winter where there have no high scoring fish for you to reach around 500 points.  (The game's set so that the winning score will be randomly around 500-570 points for the second year you participate in the event)

Make sure to use Excellent Bait to get a higher grade fish and win the contest.
