Animal Crossing: New Horizons was probably one of the most important games from 2020. It released just as the coronavirus pandemic was starting, and basically made life a bit easier for us all. And now, over a year from its release, it continues to receive updates. Nintendo has just released Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 1.11.0, which updates the game with seasonal events and items.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 1.11.0 update
Released on July 28, 2021, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons version 1.11.0 update looks to give players some new and exciting items to purchase while also breathing some fresh air into the seasonal events. The following patch notes come courtesy of the Nintendo Support page:
- Seasonal events have been updated.
- The following content has also been added:
- Additional limited-time seasonal items from Nook Shopping.
- Adjustments and corrections were made to improve the game play experience.
There’s really not a lot to go on here. There are apparently fixes and adjustments to the game that improve the experience, but no details on what these might be. We’ll be sure to let you know what these are should we discover them.
The patch also updated the seasonal events. This likely means that each of the game’s seasonal events have received a little bit of a refresher, be it tweaks to how the events operate or the types of rewards on offer. The official Animal Crossing page gives us a sneak peek at the next event, which will be Fireworks Shows. This event starts in August with the skies lighting up every Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
Beyond these, Nook Shopping has also received some new limited-time items to go along with the seasonal changes and events. Be sure to visit Timmy and Tommy to see what new goodies they have in stock. Keep an eye out for an eggplant cow, cucumber horse, dango, moon cakes, and songpyeon.
It’s always pleasing to see Animal Crossing: New Horizons receive another update. Though the patch notes are light, version 1.11.0 is bound to offer some new and exciting changes for players looking to dig into the seasonal content.

This is the part you're mostly interested in:
Fireworks Shows: Get ready for pretty colors and fun festivities! During the month of August, a fireworks show will be lighting up your island’s sky every Sunday after 7 p.m. You can even design your own fireworks by giving custom design patterns to Isabelle. And while you’re out celebrating, be sure to use Bells to buy in-game raffle tickets from Redd. If you participated in this event last year, please note that you may see some sweet, newly added prizes up for grabs (emphasis on the “sweet” part).
So, it is a limited time event run.
