When you begin to play this game or when you just go through several guides available for this game, you will notice that one of the main things that this game will test you on is interaction or socialization. Human beings must interact with one another. Even wild animals do interact with each other. Anyway, how do we achieve this? Simple, just go out of your way sometimes and meet new people, talk to them and get to know them better. People usually meet in many different places like the church, work place schools among others. In stardew valley, this is facilitated through gatherings like coming together during the festivals and events. This brings us to our topic of discussion today as we are going to talk about stardew valley Luau event.

The Stardew Valley Luau Event

This is one of the many events that stardew valley usually has. The luau event always takes place on the 11th of each summer. The only way to make it to this event is by entering the beach between 9am and 2pm. Note that you can’t access this place before the said time which is 9am. When the event is finished, you will then be taken back to the farm at around 10pm. Before this day, you will have gotten an email that will notify you about this event on the day before the event.

 The luau festival in stardew valley seems to be of some importance to the people of stardew valley as you will notice that no shop or even home is left open on the day of the event. All of them are locked and therefore cannot be entered.

Soup Testing

The main event of the luau festival is the potluck soup. This is some kind of soup that is prepared for the governor by the villagers who are usually required to bring the ingredients used for preparing this soup.  For the soup testing to commence, you will be required to talk to Mayor Lewis and the ceremony proceeds with the Governor tasting the soup.

The governor will taste the soup and the reaction he will give will be determined by the type f ingredient you brought for the soup. However, even though Mayor Lewis will react in a kind way, the outcome of the governor’s reaction may affect you by decreasing or increasing your friendship points with most of the villagers. This might even remain unchanged. Friendships with all the villagers are usually affected except for a few, including, the wizard, the dwarf, Sandy and Krobus. The luau will then automatically come to an end after the governor tastes the soup.


When it comes to the ingredients for making the soup, you will be required to bring only one thing that you would want to add to the potluck. Your ingredient should be edible or uncooked as these are the only items that are accepted for this occasion. Also, put in mind that the items you bring should be fresh and of good quality.

When the governor tastes the soup, there are six possible responses that you will get depending on the ingredient you came with to add to the soup.


  • Missing something: “Hmmm… Well it’s not bad, but it’s missing something… Did everyone in town contribute an ingredient to the soup? I feel like it’s missing someone’s unique voice.” – Governor

The player will neither earn nor lose friendship with the villagers if no item is used.

  • Best response: “Oh my… that’s the best soup I’ve ever tasted!– Governor

The player will then earn 120 friendship points with the villagers.

  • Good response: “Ah… that’s a very pleasant soup. The produce from this valley never disappoints!” – Governor

The player earns 60 friendship points with the villagers.

  • Neutral response: “Hmm… I don’t have much to say about this. It’s an average soup.” – Governor

The player will not lose or earn any friendship points with the villagers.

  • Bad response: “Um… it’s actually kind of disguising. I think I’ll pass on the soup this year.” – Governor

The player then loses 50 friendship points with the villagers.

  • Worst response: “Blech! This is vile! I think I’m going to be sick…” – Governor

The governor will pass out and the player will lose 100 friendship points with the villagers.

The luau festival in stardew valley is the best place to earn some friendship points and build strong relationship with the villagers. If everything seems to be too plain for you, you can try playing with the stardew valley mods and spice up your game for a more exciting and entertaining experience.

As you have seen above, you will need to be more careful when choosing your ingredients. Poor quality ingredients will result to bad reaction from the governor and this might cost you some friendship points in the game. Even though it may sound weird, stardew valley luau festival is just all about fun and through it, you get to strengthen or diminish your relationship level with the town’s people. Honestly, in my opinion, after going through some RPG game reviews, stardew valley should not only be among the best RPG games but it should be the best among them. Try playing the game today and tell me if you will still get bored.
