February 2: Groundhog Day (Unconfirmed)

Groundhog Day Date February 2, 2021
(Unconfirmed)

Groundhog Day took place in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and it is likely that it will again in ACNH. We will update this section once we have confirmed the Groundhog Day event!

February 14: Valentine's Day (Unconfirmed)

Valentine's Day Date February 14, 2021
(Unconfirmed)

Valentine's Day was celebrated in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and should make a return in ACNH. We will update this section with confirmed information, as soon as it's released!

February 25: Festivale (Unconfirmed)

Festivale Date February 25, 2021
(Unconfirmed)

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Festivale occured either in February or in March. Since ACNH did not hold Festivale when it was released in March 2020, we suspect that the first Festivale of ACNH will occur in February 2021. Once we have the event information and date confirmed, we will update this section! Stay tuned!

Festivale could be on the first day of Spring

The last day of Snowflakes (February 24) is the last day of Winter, making the first day of Young Spring Bamboo (February 25) the first day of Spring. Since Festivale is a Spring event, it may very well be held on February 25 as well. We will update this section once this information is confirmed!
