How to Get ACNH Tomato Festival Tee - Tomato Festival Items in ACNH

Unlike standard events in Animal Crossing New Horizons, Nook Shopping seasonal events are not celebrated through in-game activities, but players can purchase one or several unique items directly and use them in the game. The description of the Tomato Festival in the game is as below:

“This festival, inspired by one that originated in Spain, has participants tossing squished tomatoes at one another for a splat-filled hour between 11 AM and noon. Better put on a Tomato Festival tee quick!”

The Tomato Festival Tee is a new 2.0 seasonal item, it is a t-shirt in red, with a big tomato image print on the front of the tee, and you can wear it on the day of the festival. To obtain this Nook Shopping seasonal item, from August 20 to August 31, 2022, players should go to the Nook Stop in Resident Services, then buy the Tomato Festival Tee with 1000 Animal Crossing bells. This item was discovered by data miners, if the ACNH 2.0 update is the last update with new content, then Tomato Festival Tee is likely to be the last new item that we can get in the game. 

Another thing you should know is that since the 2.0 Update, New Horizons items that are only available via Nook Shopping are now shown through the catalog and are labeled under “Seasonal”, they can be purchased during the time while the related Nook Shopping seasonal event is ongoing.
