Pave will arrive at the Resident Services Plaza on February 15 to kick-start Festivale filled with confetti, dancing, and colorful floating feathers. To get started with the event, you simply have to approach and speak with the energetic peacock.

Pave himself will guide you through the entire event. Encouraging players to indulge in the carnival spirit, he will hand over a DIY Recipe for the rare rainbow feather. It will come in handy towards the event’s later stages.

After trading nine batches of feathers with the cheerful peacock, he will assign you to find three rainbow features. The reward for this is an event-exclusive item that you cannot obtain from anywhere else.

While you can find floating rainbow feathers, those are pretty rare. Therefore, it’s best to craft them using the DIY recipe acquired earlier. Crafting a single rainbow feather will require one of each of the four other types of feathers.

The villagers will also join in on the festivities by hunting down feathers for themselves. You can chat with villagers on the day of Festivale to trade specific types of feathers that you are looking for.

Festivale will only last for a day, and both Pave and the colorful feathers will disappear the next day. However, the good news is that once the event is unlocked in real-time players who missed out on participating can time travel back to it.
