Hmm? Nothing special today... just kidding! It's party time, and then it's after party time!

The Party Girl

A Party is an event that can occur randomly, or be activated manually using a Party Center. Parties are mainly visual, having little functional effect on gameplay, with the exception of some exclusive vanity and novelty items available from the Clothier and Party Girl. A Party lasts until 7:30 PM, and if spawned randomly, begins at 4:30 AM.

A Party has a random 10*1/10 (10%) chance of occurring at any particular dawn ("thrown" by one to three NPCs), without the need for a placed Party Center. A Party will not occur randomly if a random party already occurred in the previous 5–10 days (the actual cooldown period is chosen at random when a natural Party initiates), but a Party can still be triggered manually via the Party Center during that time.

When NPCs throw a Party, any placed Party Center activates, a burst of confetti appears on each NPC, and a pink status message displays: "Looks like <NPC name>, <NPC name>, and <NPC name> are throwing a party". At its conclusion, the Party automatically deactivates with a puff of smoke on all NPCs and another pink status message: "Party time's over!". A Party can still be re-initiated manually afterward.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Parties affect all NPCs (except the Tax Collector, Old Man, and Skeleton Merchant), regardless of their location in the world.
  • It is possible that only one or two NPCs throw a Party. The respective status messages in these cases are:
    • "Looks like <NPC name> is throwing a party"
    • "Looks like <NPC name> & <NPC name> are throwing a party"
  • The background balloons effect wears off if the player is 47 tiles away from any Party Center or NPC.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to version and the addition of Lantern Nights and Meteor Showers, this was the only event that was peaceful, i.e. did not cause more enemies to spawn.
  • Also prior to, the Party Girl was the only NPC to have two Party unique messages.
  • Even though the Tax Collector does not wear a Party Hat or says anything related to Parties, he can still throw a Party.
  • Parties are the only event that allow seeing the hair of some NPCs, most noticeably the Dye Trader.
  • The Goblin Tinkerer's quote references "pin the tail on the donkey", a party game.
