Animal Crossing New Horizons April Fool's Day: Event, Date, Will It Happen, Rewards and More

New Horizons has been one of the best games to release this year.

The game has been progressing along smoothly since it released back in March.

Toy Day was the last major update for 2020, and we are looking ahead at what is to come within the New Year.


One event that may be added this year is some sort of April Fool's Day event.

Here's all we know! 



Last year, Nintendo never released any sort of event for April Fool's Day 2020.

Perhaps this was due to the release timing of New Horizons, as it was just a few days/weeks from the special day.

If they intend to release an April Fool's Day event this year, we can assume it will be related to iterations we have seen in previous games.


Animalcrossingfandom.com has posted the following note of what April Fool's Day was like in New Leaf: 

On April First of each year, a Special Visitor named Blanca will appear, walking around the player's town in a random location. She is a white cat character, without a face, and she wears a Jester outfit. Once talked to, she will disappear to one of the villager's houses and impersonate them. The goal is to find out and determine which is the real Villager and which is Blanca.

We can assume something similar may happen his year as well! 



Of course, the event is going to take place on April 1st, 2021 if it was to happen this year. 




No news yet into whether or not this special day will grant players an type of reward.

Since it is not a massive event such as Bunny Day; perhaps it will be something small for players to snag!
