Festivale Event Guide

Craft Using DIY


It's possible to craft Rainbow feathers if you can't find them yourself. To do so, you'll need to get one feather of each color!

Required Materials To Craft Rainbow Feather

Necessary Materials

RedRed feather ×1
BlueBlue feather ×1
GreenGreen feather ×1
PurplePurple feather ×1

Rainbow feathers will require one feather of each color to craft. These regular feathers can easily be found on your island, so if you just can't seem to find a Rainbow feather, consider crafting one instead.

Get The Recipe From Pavé

Pave Recipe

The recipe to craft the Rainbow Feather can be obtained by talking to Pavé for the first time during Festivale!

What To Do When You Can't Find A Rainbow Feather

Enter And Exit A Building


By entering and exiting a build, you'll reset the feathers currently floating around your island. If you can't find Rainbow feathers, it might be worth your while to briefly slip into a villager's house to reset all feathers.

Rainbow Feather Uses

Give To Pavé


Rainbow feathers can be handed in to Pave in exchange for various Festivale Furniture. Note that after you get 9 Festivale item pieces, you'll need to give Pavé 3 Rainbow feathers to get Festivale Float, the final item! It might be worth saving up 3 feathers in advance for this.

Possible To Get Rainbow Items Too

Giving Pavé a Rainbow feather will reward you with a rainbow-colored Festivale item! It's also possible to change the item's color to rainbow via Customization, but if you'd rather just get an item directly, give it to Pavé instead.

Customize Festivale Items


Rainbow feathers can also be used in the process of Customization, allowing you to turn a given Festivale item rainbow colored!

Wear As A Hair Ornament


Finally, if you should feel so inclined, you can actually stick Rainbow feathers in your hair! This will give you an added flair and is perfect for celebrating Festivale!
