Events are temporary activities players can participate in to get bonuses, boosts or rewards. The event board serves as a notification board for events.
Events are unlocked at experience level 9.
Events currently occur every day, starting on Monday at 8am UTC. While some events happen to celebrate a particular holiday, others can happen at any time, in no particular order.
The event board's appearance changes according to the event that is active in the game. If no event is active, the blank event board (pictured) will be displayed.

Global events are events where players from all around the world can win a global reward by reaching the community's common goal. Players can also win personal rewards such as diamonds, boosterss, supplies, and vouchers by reaching the five goals given to them. Global events last for a few days.
Seasonal events are global events which take place on special occasions. Players usually win a special decoration if they reach the community's goal, along with usual rewards or seasonal decorations when they reach their personal goals.
Seasonal events usually last for 5 days.
See Decorations/Events for latest rewards.
- To prepare for double coins events, fill up your storage with 15 of each crop and 10 of each product.
- Prepare for Lure Fishing Season by stockpiling colored lures in your Tackle Box.
- Avoid using Gold Lures during a Lure Fishing Season event as each of the 6 specialty fish can be caught with another type of lure. Save the rare Gold Lures to catch the Speckled Dace, Golden Trout, and Goldfish.
Did you know?
- The event ad, which appears when you log into the game and a new event has started, can be flicked away (just like the raven).
- Before the December 2014 update there used to be contribution events in which you had to contribute a certain number of items in order to reach the global goals but Hay Day removed them saying that a lot of players especially low level can not contribute much which affects the score of other players.
- Before the Summer Update 2017 only one event used to last for 4 days from Friday to Tuesday till 4pm (PST).
