The fair is one of the 8 festivals throughout the game. It happens on the 16th of every fall and is a great occasion for you to get some stuff that you previously probably could not have found. The way that the festival works is that it awards you Star Tokens which you can redeem for items at the fair that you normally cannot get. One of such items is a Starfruit which increases your overall energy permanently. It happens in the middle of Pelican Town and starts at 9:00 am. You can enter the festival from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Once you leave the festival you will return to the farm at 10:00 pm. You will not be able to enter the town before the festival starts. Here is the walkthrough on what to do to get the most out of this festival.
The way to get the most out of the fair is to win the most games so that you can get the most Star Tokens. The first thing that you should do is to speak to the mayor.
He will tell you to display the items that you have brought for the Grange display. If you speak to him again he will give you 1000 Star Tokens. The second thing that you need to do is to win the Grange display because that will get you 1000 tokens. Winning the display can be a little tricky but you can easily do it if you have the right items. All you need to do is to use the items that are of the highest value, the items that are of the gold or higher quality and you need to make sure that the items are of different categories such as Fish, Fruits, Artisan goods and so on. There are 8 categories that you can choose from so it is better if you diversify and keep the widest range of goods possible.
The third trick to win at the fair is the most important but it is a little complicated. There is a wheel of fortune in the fair that you can bet Star tokens in. It is basically a roulette wheel and it gives you a reward if the color you choose comes up.
However the game is rigged in such a way that the orange color does not come up 3 times in a row. Therefore what you can do is to place small bets at first until you get orange twice in a row and after that happens you can place an enormous bet on the green color and you are sure to win big.
These tricks will definitely help you but don’t forget that the games are fun to play and easy to win.
The fishing one is particularly easy if you just need a bit more tokens it is the way to go.
