Celeste’s Ginkgo Cafe started on August 30, 2020, and ended on September 19, 2020. It is an event where Celeste asks the player to grow rare Mini Ginkgo Seeds and Gingko Maidens, as well as Ginkgo themed awards. This event has a very strong fall-like theme.
Celeste: Oh, pardon me!
Celeste: The trees turning yellow are so pretty that I didn’t pay attention to where I was and stumbled here…
Celeste: Autumn revolves around leaves changing colors and the harvest. It’s also a time for reflection.
Celeste: This is a special occasion, so I’d love to relax with some coffee and enjoy the plethora of colors.
Celeste: Eureka! What are your thoughts on opening a pop-up café here at this campsite?
Celeste: Colorful leaves, coffee, sweets… These are all of the fall essentials I look forward to!
Celeste: I think everyone at the campsite will appreciate it too!
Celeste: I tend to get quite sleepy during the daytime… so if you could help me out, I’d really appreciate it!
Celeste: Thank you! By the way, my brother Blathers, gave me a mini ginkgo tree recently.
Blathers is another owl character in Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. His main purpose is guiding players through maps that result in useful prizes. The player has to collect the map first, and then spend a specific resource to play through it.
Celeste: I found out that rare ginkgo maiden insects are attracted to this type of plant.
Celeste: Who would have thought? And they’re also quite rare!
Celeste: Gazing at mini ginkgoes and ginkgo maidens from a café terrace would make for a picturesque scene.
Celeste: I’d love it if you could grow mini ginkgoes in your garden and catch the insects that gather there!
Celeste gave me some y.-mini-ginkgo seeds+ and some y.-mini-ginkgo seeds. One grows faster than the other.
Event on now! Celeste’s Ginkgo Café
This sign shows what two of the rare creatures look like. It also shows that the player can eventually exchange mini ginkgo plants for prizes that are connected to this event.
My Pocket Camp character is standing in their garden. Five mini-ginkgo plants have grown. Each one has attracted either a red or yellow rare creature.
I caught some red gingko maidens and some yellow ginkgo maidens. These are exchanged for prizes.

The next part of the event required the player to collect gold ginkgo maiden bugs and silver ginkgo maiden bugs. It was still possible to collect the previous colors, if you needed more of them in order to earn prizes.

I took some screenshots of the Celeste’s Gingko Café items.
My Pocket Camp character stands in front of the beginning of a café. Goldie is sitting in one of the chairs and enjoying coffee. The table is set for two with a plum dessert coffee set. There is a table of berry fall dessert set in the background.
My Pocket Camp character stands in front of the beginning of a café. There is a café table with a tablecloth. There are two café chairs near the table, and one black chair off to the side. Behind the table is a yellow ginkgo plant in a brick pot.
In front of the table are two sections of fall leaves on the ground, with red bricks on either side of them.
My Pocket Camp character has added four maidenhair ginkgo trees in the background.
My Pocket Camp character stands in front of a (mostly) complete café. It is missing a few chairs. I added the ginkgo café coffee stand behind the tables and in front of the trees.
I was eventually able to add more café chairs. The black chair is not part of the café set, but it matched well enough. I added the park clock to this fancy little outdoor café.
This was the final configuration of Celeste’s Ginkgo Café. I made it less cluttered by rearranging the items and removing the ones that were not actually part of the event.
All tasks complete!
Celeste’s Gingko Café Classes
The first class is called Ginkgo Terrace.
The recommended furniture for this class included one ginkgo café chair and one yellow mini ginkgo plant in a pot. Both of those are part of the café items. It also required a bistro table, which I did not have.
Cyrus is the only one who can craft a bistro table.
This class requires the player to put all three of the required items into the proper spaces.
The highlighted squares show where the player needs to put specific items.
Ginkgo Terrace 2 is the second class in this series.
All of the items that are recommended for this class come from Celeste’s Ginkgo Café. They include: ginkgo café chair, ginkgo café table, plum dessert coffee set, and berry fall dessert set.
Here is an overhead view of Ginkgo Terrace 2. The highlighted squares show where the required items go.
Ginkgo Terrace 3 is the final class in the series.
Ginkgo Terrace 3 requires several items from Celeste’s Ginkgo Café event. This includes: citrus fall dessert set, fall maidenhair trees, lime dessert coffee set, ginkgo café stand, park clock – and more.

The sweet-potato roast set was a prize that players could earn as they worked through the quests.
Celeste: Thank you so much for gathering all of these ginkgo trees! Much appreciated, Ownka.
Celeste: Now, as a little treat, I’ve roasted up some sweet potatoes for us. Let’s enjoy them together!
Celeste: Doesn’t a roasted sweet potato just hit the spot?
Celeste: I hope you got enough to eat! A fully belly will help you keep nice and warm.
Celeste: It’ll be chilly around here before you know it, Ownka.
Celeste: Farewell for no! When you look up at the night sky and see the stars, I hope you recall your friend Celeste.
