The scariest time of the year is just around the corner. On Halloween night, the islanders gather in the market square for a trick or a treat! Jack shows up too, and by giving him candy you collected back in October, you can earn scary rewards.
How to start the Halloween event
On October 31st, from 5:00 p.m. to midnight (local time), your islanders will gather in the square in their own costumes, and the square will be decked out with a number of Halloween decorations. You will also get a visit from a mysterious guest: Jack, the “Tsar of Halloween”.
Jack will be in the town square in front of Resident Services. By giving Jack candy and lollipops, you will get scary in-game rewards. Make sure you save candy for your islanders as well, otherwise you might get a prank!
Where can you buy sweets?
If you didn’t buy candy in October, you can travel earlier in the month to buy candy at Timmy and Tommy’s Nook shop. Sweets are available until October and are limited to one purchase per day.

You can also get candy by simply dressing up in a costume on Halloween night and talking to your fellow Islanders when they are in their homes between 5:00 p.m. and midnight and get a piece of free candy per neighbor.
When you receive Jack’s face mask and robe, put them on and get closer to your islanders – they will be scared of giving you a single piece of candy! This can only happen once. After that, they will realize that it is you and will not be fooled again.
You can get Jack’s face mask and robe items from Jack himself. Jack will give his mask to him when you give him your first piece of candy, and when you give him a second piece of candy, he will give him his robe.
How to find lollipops for Jack
Lollipops are unique candy that can be used to receive exclusive Halloween rewards from Jack the Halloween Tsar. The best way for players to get lollipops is to give candy to your islanders during the October 31st Halloween event.
Islanders who are outside their home on Halloween night between 5:00 p.m. and midnight (local time) ask for candy, and you can receive an item in return for completing their request.
Although the article has a Halloween theme, it is not guaranteed to be a lollipop, it could instead be a DIY recipe for a new Halloween item, Halloween furniture, or pumpkins. You can also get two new reactions from this event – Haunt and Scare.
You should definitely save up some candy as it may take you several tries to get a lollipop from an islander.
Jack’s trick or treating
Lollipops happen to be Jack’s favorite snack. By giving Jack two candies, he will first reward you with a replica of his costume, then he will ask for lollipops in exchange for some unique and exclusive rewards.
If you give Jack a lollipop, he’ll reward you with exclusive DIY recipes for Halloween items. In total, you will need three lollipops to get all three unique recipes. You will get the following DIY Halloween-themed recipes:
- Lollipop 1: Scary carriage
- Lollipop 2: Recipe for a Scary Carriage
- Lollipop 3: Scary Magic Wand
These special DIY recipes are only available during the Halloween event, and Jack is only visiting your island for the Halloween event on October 31st from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. So make the most of this visit. Happy Halloween!
