Animal Crossing: New Horizons players should prepare for a virtual feast because the second annual Turkey Day has arrived. The Nintendo game’s celebration falls on the same day as American Thanksgiving — that’s Nov. 25 in 2021 — and finishes off Animal Crossing’s November event schedule. Players meet a special turkey NPC named Franklin, whom Tom Nook invited to cook food for the island. Franklin has quite the menu planned, but he needs players’ help to put it all together. Here’s everything to know about Turkey Day, including recipes, rewards, and more.
‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Turkey Day event | NintendoWhat happens on Turkey Day in ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’?
As Animal Crossing World notes, the main activity on Turkey Day involves a scavenger hunt. You must talk to Franklin to get started. He’ll read off recipes for various dishes and send you to find the ingredients, which include items like pumpkins, clams, and fish. His recipes for 2021 will likely be similar to last year’s. However, Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update 2.0 added a cooking feature for players and the ability to grow tomatoes, wheat, and more, so those ingredients may be included as well.
In addition to Franklin’s ingredient list, you can bring one secret ingredient to complete the recipe. However, he doesn’t tell you the ingredient, so you must figure it out (or find them below). Once you’ve collected all the components, bring them back to Franklin, and he’ll whip up the dishes.
Franklin won’t be the only one cooking on Turkey Day. Villagers in their homes will also set up cooking stations where you can trade ingredients. This is an option to keep in mind if you don’t have enough vegetables growing on your island. Villagers will also drop hints about Franklin’s secret ingredients, so pay attention to the dialogue.

Franklin will set up his cooking station outside the Resident Services building at 9 a.m. local time on Nov. 25. If you’re playing Animal Crossing before that time, the screen should reload, and Resident Services should announce that the Turkey Day event has begun. You’ll hear special music playing on the island for the duration of the event. Additionally, animal villagers will walk around wearing hats and carrying plates or drinks.
Thankfully, there’s plenty of time to gather ingredients and complete Franklin’s requests. The festivities will run until midnight.
