Festivals are an exciting part of each season in Stardew Valley, and one fan has created impressive posters based on some of the in-game events. These festival posters are another example of the creativity of the Stardew Valley community, with players regularly showcasing their love of the hit indie game.
Since its release in 2015, Stardew Valley has generated an enormous following, with many fans continuing to play the game over eight years since its initial release. While there are numerous reasons for this perennial popularity, Stardew Valley’s festivals play a significant part in creating the game’s charm. Each season has several festivals, with nine in total, and each has a unique theme. Recently, one fan paid homage to several of their favorite events in several pieces of fan art.
Stardew Valley Player Creates Isometric Watercolor Painting of the Wizard’s Tower
A creative and talented Stardew Valley player shares a piece of art showing the game’s Wizard Tower in isometric perspective and soft watercolors.
Taking to Reddit, a user known as Bratzoid shared a collection of event posters they had created based on Stardew Valley’s festivals. Specifically, the artist created posters of the Flower Dance, The Dance of the Moonlight Jellies, Spirit’s Eve, and Night Market. Impressively, the artist managed to capture the highlights of each seasonal festival in the art, starting with the Flower Dance’s distinctly floral aesthetic, befitting of spring in Pelican Town.
For the summer festival, Bratzoid had glowing jellyfish swimming toward the shore, with the Fish Shop seen on the dock in the background. Spirit’s Eve featured a batch of pumpkins, including a jack-o-lantern, and the maze from the game. Finally, the artwork for Stardew Valley‘s Night Market had various shops and other attractions from the festival. In addition to capturing the essence of the events in unique pieces of art, Bratzoid included the in-game date and location for the festivals somewhere in each picture.
Unsurprisingly, these impressive posters caught the community’s attention, with thousands of fans upvoting the Reddit post. In the comments, Bratzoid said that since they had completed a poster for every season in the game, they were considering being done with the project. However, they left the door open to create even more event posters based on the remaining festivals if they felt inspired.
New Festivals Are Coming to Stardew Valley
It is worth pointing out that the number of festivals in the game will increase in 2024. According to Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone, Update 1.6 will include one new major and two new minor festivals. While the specifics of these in-game events are still sparse, it means more potential poster ideas for artists like Bratzoid once the update is eventually released.
Stardew Valley is a hit Indie release that spawned a cult following thanks to its similarities to titles like Harvest Moon and The Sims. Players will take control of their own characters as they are dropped into the eponymous Stardew Valley and given an old dilapidated farm. They’ll cultivate new crops and relationships with the NPCs scattered around the area, as well as combat monsters and embark on other quests.
