The three returning events are International Museum Day, May Day, and Wedding Season. The International Museum Day and Wedding Season event screenshots seem to suggest a new Art Gallery series of stamps to acquire and perhaps new wedding furniture.

Here are the dates for those activities.

  • April 29, 2021-May 7, 2021: May Day
  • May 18-31, 2021: International Museum Day
  • June 1-30, 2021: Wedding Season

As for the new clothing and furniture in the April 2021 Animal Crossing: New Horizons update, they tend to follow themes. As part of the Wedding Season event, there will be wedding-related items available at the Able Sisters. A Tsunokakushi was one of the items shown. Nook Shopping’s Seasonal section will also sell items like a Nuptial Bell, Nuptial Doorplate, and Nuptial Ring Pillow. There will also be May and June 2021 seasonal items inspired by Cheese Rolling and Mother’s Day, and a screenshot showed Festival Zhongzi and Thank-you Dad items.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch. Its next update will arrive on April 28, 2021.
