Stardew valley LUAU and What to bring along

About Stardew valley LUAU

Stardew Valley Luau is a recommended Summer festival. During the hours of 9 am to 2 pm, you can enjoy a Luau by entering The Beach. As soon as the Luau ends, the guests are automatically returned to The Farm at 10 pm. Every house and shop is locked during the Luau and cannot be entered.

This festival is also organized around a communal potluck soup that is prepared with ingredients that are added by the villagers. If the player desires, he or she can add the ingredient to the soup. Talking with the mayor can start the soup tasting, and the Governor will judge it accordingly based on the ingredients used to prepare it.

The reaction of the Governor will also affect the friendship points with the villager depending upon the ingredients used in the potluck. Good ingredients used in the soup will result in higher friendship points and vice versa. In spite of this, the soup’s taste cannot affect friendships with the player’s children, the wizard, the dwarf, Sandy, and Krobus.

What is the central feature of Stardew Valley LUAU?


Potluck is the Stardew valley luau soup concocted by villagers, bringing in their own ingredients. However, the players may also add in their own ingredients. The main points to remember are :

  • Only Edible, uncooked items are valid.
  • Additionally, Life Elixir, Oil of Garlic, and Magic Rock Candy cannot be added since they are uncooked but are considered as cooked by the game.
  • A few items like Field Snack and Bug Steak are eligible, however.
  • A player isn’t informed in advance that “Potluck” is soup, nor does it mention the validity of the cooked and inedible items.

It becomes impossible for a player to modify the soup in any way when Mayor Lewis says “I trust you all put high-quality ingredients in the soup this year. We do not want the governor to regret his visit to the valley.” 

The Governor’s reaction can be determined on the three major factors:

  • Base sell price.
  • Item Quality.
  • Edibility (Healing effect).

The Governor will provide you with six different responses ranging from the best to the worst, and players can also unlock one secret response as well.

Follow the table below to change the taste value of the potluck and accordingly get the response from the Governor.
