The Sims 4 Snowy Escape: All About Festivals

Presented by EA Game Changers

The Sims 4 Snowy Escape brings three brand new festivals to the world of Mt. Komorebi. We first saw Festivals added back when City Living was released back in November 2016. They were exciting and interesting but there was only a handful that Sims could experience and over time they would start to feel slightly repetitive. Even though we saw the addition of smaller festival-like events in more recent packs, Snowy Escape is the first expansion to follow suit with Festivals since City Living.

Getting Started

You can find out about Festivals by heading over to one of the many information boards that you can find throughout the three neighborhoods of Mt. Komorebi. Here you will be able to find out the Festival Schedule as well as finding out more about the next festival. You’ll also notice you’ll have options to Check Daily Wildlife Report and learn more about Hiking, Snow Sports, and the Onsen Bathhouse.

You may find an information board that displays a larger map. These information boards are specific for Sims wanting to go on Hikes and will not display any information about Festivals. These are found more towards the outskirts of the neighborhoods.

Attending A Festival

Attending a Festival is easy. You will get a pop-up on the notification wall letting you know that the Festival is due to start. Simply click on the Show Festival Info button to find out more and it will give you the option to travel straight to the Festival location.


The Festivals

Festival of Light

The Festival of Light is aimed around having your Sims take a moment to pause and admire the beauty of the world around you. The tradition helps Sims remember those who have sadly passed on but to also celebrate the light. An evening filled with fireworks, spotting the lanterns floating along the river and making a Tanabata wish.

  • Location: Senbamachi Neighbourhood
  • When: Every other Friday. 6 pm – 1 am
