Stardew Valley: The Complete Calendar Guide – NPC Birthdays, Festivals, Seasons, and More

Stardew Valley




As a farming simulator, seasons play a crucial role in the gameplay of Stardew Valley. Beyond just the growing periods, the game also tracks NPC birthdays, festivals, and wild berry seasons. It is essential for players to keep track of these dates in order to fully experience everything that Stardew Valley has to offer. To assist players in managing their time effectively, Pierre’s shop provides a calendar next to the front door, and Robin sells a calendar at her shop. However, these calendars only display the current season and do not include information on birthdays of NPCs you haven’t met or special foraging times like salmonberry season and blackberry season. This comprehensive guide aims to fill in these gaps by providing the complete calendar of events, along with some useful tips for new players.
