How To Get Feathers

Catch With A Net During Festivale

Availability PeriodFebruary 15th

Feathers appear on your island on February 15th, during the Festivale event. Catch them with a net and add them to your inventory!

Catching With Net Is Your Only Option

Just like Cherry Blossom Petals and Snowflakes, your only option for getting feathers will be the net.

Festivale Event Guide

Feathers Won't Disappear

Unlike the case with Cherry Blossom Petals and Snowflakes, floating feathers won't disappear even if you swing and miss with your net. Feel free to try as many times until you catch them.

Trade Feathers With Villagers


By talking to villagers during the Festivale event, you can trade your unwanted feathers! The specific color villagers want depends on the color of clothes they are wearing, so if you have left over feathers of a specific color, talk to villagers who are wearing clothes of a similar color!

Separate Feather Stacks


You can stack up to 3 feathers in your inventory. If you want to trade just 1 feather, make sure to grab 1 from the stack and separate it in your inventory.
