It looks like Summer Solstice may be arriving in Animal Crossing New Horizons according to a recent data mine.
The summer solstice or estival solstice, also known as midsummer, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt toward the Sun.
Now items have started to appear in the Nook Shop!
Here's what we know about this event.

Summer Solstice Festival
Data miner @FireMonkey__ found in a deep dive that there is an event called "Summer Solstice Festival". The description that accompanies it reads the following:
"This European festival celebrates the arrival of summer. It's said that folks wear flowers crowns and dance for good health and new love in the coming year. Maybe your crush will notice you in your sunflower crown!"
During this event, the town will be sunny all day.
