The Carnival of Time is an annual festival in Termina.

Majora's Mask

The large Clock Tower in the center of Clock Town opens up on the eve of the carnival.[1] The Carnival is a gathering of the races to celebrate a good crop for the year to come.[2][3] The festivity goers typically wear masks to this event.[4] While it technically begins at midnight on the Final Day, it mostly occurs on the fourth day of Link's stay in Termina, and as a result, it is only successful if Link stops the impending Moon. Musicians such as the Zora band, The Indigo-Go's, perform during this festive occasion.[5][6][7] Many important events such as marriages coincide with this day, a glorious event for all.[8]



  1. "Please enjoy the Carnival of Time.", Majora's Mask.
  2. "The carnival is almost here, so it's good for you to learn its meaning. It's a little long, but I'll read it with some enthusiasm. Ahem... "The Carnival of Time." Each year, the season of harmony begins when the sun and moon are in alignment. Paying homage to the way that both nature and time are tirelessly in the process of progressing... the Carnival of Time is when the peoples of the four worlds celebrate that harmony and request fruitfulness for the year." — Anju's Grandmother, Majora's Mask.
