Turkey Day is one of the biggest holidays for Animal Crossing players, and the event celebrates Thanksgiving in a way that only the game could. The event will be held on November 26, 2021.

This is significantly more important, as much of the world is still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and might not be able to celebrate with family or friends. Either way, there will be an event hosted on each player's island to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Turkey Day's event is all about food, and players are tasked with making food for Franklin and the villagers. Here's how to start the event, make Turkey Day food and unlock the items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.


All about the Turkey Day event, recipes and items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons that players need to know

For Turkey Day, the following will happen on every island:

  • Chef Franklin the Turkey will appear near Resident Services.
  • A cooking table with cookware and ingredients will be set up outside Resident Services.
  • Dining tables and other holiday decorations will be set up for the festivities.
  • Villagers will put on themed hats, carry food and drinks and gather around the plaza.
  • Themed Thanksgiving music will play all day.

In order to trigger the event, Animal Crossing players will need to visit Franklin any time after 9 a.m. local time, on November 26, 2021. He'll need players to collect the items for the recipes he plans to make.

Once they've been tasked with completing these recipes, Animal Crossing players can look around the island and ask villagers for the ingredients. Villagers will give players the ingredients they possess.

However, players can also use items in their inventory, or storage, to complete the recipes in Animal Crossing: New Horizon's Turkey Day event.
