The Midsummer Cawnival is a seasonal event in Don't Starve Together that recurs in the month of June. The event is based on Summer solstice celebrations, and is meant to be a Summer equivalent to the annual Winter's Feast event celebrated on the opposite end of the year.[4]

Midsummer's Cawnival is celebrated as a part of Klei Entertainment's larger "Klei Fest" event, in which they add celebratory content updates to many of their different games and run sales on the games for the duration of the event.[5][6]

Corvus Goodfeather

That's one fancy crow.


Corvus Goodfeather allows the player to begin the event as well as purchase games and tokens once the Cawnival Tree has been placed. He will stay at the Florid Postern if the Cawnival Tree is yet to have been planted in a world. However, if the player plants the Cawnival Tree elsewhere and rings the bell, he will fly to the location of the tree.

Corvus is marked out on the map similarly to mobs like Chester. When the player is playing a minigame, he will watch and comment on the player when they are playing the game well. Once the minigame ends, depending on how well the player did, he will give the player extra prize tickets.

Upon getting close enough to Corvus, a new crafting filter will become available named "Cawnival Creation". This filter only has the "Cawnival Sapling" initially. After purchasing and constructing the "sapling" the rest of the filter becomes available.

The following items can be crafted in the Cawnival Creation Filter:

The Cawnival Tree is a craftable structure that is only available during the Midsummer Cawnival event. Interacting with the placed tree will allow the player to ring a bell, summoning Corvus Goodfeather to fly to the tree. Placing the tree also unlocks new items in the "Cawnival Creation" crafting tab when the player interacts with Corvus Goodfeather. The Cawnival Tree can be cut down with 10 hits from an axe to return it as an item.

The appearance of the tree changes slightly as the player adds new decorations around the tree and up to three new Crow Kids will fly in to wander around the Cawnival as the tree is decorated.

Crow Kids are Cawnival spectators that will appear once the player plants the Cawnival Tree and will wander around and interact with any decorations if the player planted any nearby. The more decorations that are around the Cawnival Tree, the more Crow Kids will fly in. Whenever the player begins a minigame and any Crow Kids are nearby, they will watch the player and cheer them on whenever they are doing well. When the minigame ends, they will drop 1 prize ticket. The player can give the Crow Kids Popcorn or Corny Slush which then will drop 1 prize ticket and 1 "Cawnival Token", after this they will be seen occasionally eating one of the snacks. Only one snack can be given to a Crow Kid at the time and the player will have to wait to give the same Crow Kid a snack again, 1 hour for the Popcorn and 12 minutes for the Corny Slush.

Whenever a hostile mob approaches near them they will fly away from the danger; even a non-hostile Shadow Creature will still cause them to fly away.

Crow Kids have randomized names similar to Bunnymen and Pigs.

Crow Kids are capable of adding fuel to campfires and do so whenever the fire gets low as long as it's night.
