Maple Leaf Season is an event that was introduced in New Horizons. It takes place in late fall.


New Horizons

In New Horizons, Maple Leaf Season takes place between November 16th and 25th in the Northern Hemisphere, and between May 16th and 25th in the Southern Hemisphere. While the event is active, Maple Leaves will fall from the sky and can be caught with a net. In addition, seasonal DIY Recipes can be obtained from balloons; Isabelle will give the player the recipe for the Red-leaf pile during her daily broadcast. Crafting items from Maple Leaf Season recipes requires Maple Leaves as a crafting material.
