In Animal Crossing New Horizons, there were some changes made to the game in July.

ACNH July Events & Items 2023

1. Tanabata (Bamboo Grass)

Animal Crossing New Horizons Tanabata (also known as Star Festival or Festival of the Weaver) is a Japanese festival celebrated on July 7th where people write wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo trees. For our first ACNH item, we have the bamboo grass for the Tanabata Holiday in Japan which is from July 1 to July 7 in Animal Crossing New Horizons now. It's a really great item from Japan and basically, it has on it a bunch of different little pieces of paper which contain people's wishes. You can interact with the item, so you can check out all of the different characters' wishes. 

What's really interesting is these wishes seem to represent characters around your Island and the different personality types. It seems like there's a different color for each personality type which is really cool. There's also one for some of the special characters as well. From July 1 until the 7 if you want to get this item in your game. it doesn't matter what hemisphere you're in you can get it as long as you log on and you check out the Nook Shopping App or Nook Shopping via the resident services terminal.


2. Marine Day (Ship Wheel Door Decoration)

Animal Crossing New Horizons Marine Day is an event that takes place on the third Saturday of July in Japan, which celebrates the importance of the ocean and marine life. In the game, players can participate in the event by swimming and diving in the ocean to collect various sea creatures such as fish and underwater bugs. From July 8 to July 22 and this is an item that actually exclusively goes on your door it's called the ship wheel door decoration. But the only way you're going to be able to display it is either inside your house on the walls or on a door outside. A lot of people seem to forget that you can actually give these door items to your villagers and they'll display them on their doors. This one definitely looks really good especially if you're going for a nautical kind of theme or maybe a pirate theme. You have until July 22 to get it from July 8.


3. Bastille Day (Phrygian Cap)

Bastille Day is a national holiday in France celebrated on July 14th every year. It commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison on July 14, 1789, which was a pivotal event in the French Revolution. The day is celebrated with parades, fireworks, and public gatherings across France, and it is also marked by official ceremonies, including a military parade in Paris. We have a clothing item which is the Phrygian cap and this item is from July 10 until July 20. It actually could be a really good educational resource for some people who aren't so familiar with the French Revolution. Now clothing items are always nice to get and although for a lot of people found this item might not be so appealing. If you don't like the color blue, don't worry because this item actually comes in a ton of different variations. There is a red cap, an orange one, a green one, a blue one and also a purple one. So your friends could all get together and wear this hat.


4. Cow Bow Festival (Rodeo Style Spring)

Cowboy Festival is a Brazilian Cowboy holiday. The rodeo style spring is available from July 15 until August 15 so you have a whole month and this is the only item going on into August. If you want to get your hands on this item, make sure you get it before that day.
