During the event, many exclusive features are available for players to enjoy, such as Winter Holiday-themed Skins, Winter Foods, craftable Gifts and Gift Wraps, Festive Tree Planters, Winter's Feast Trees, and a variety of Winter Ornaments.

In 2018, the Winter's Feast Lantern Skin was given upon opening the game during this event.

In 2019, the Ice Fishing Rod Skin was given upon opening the game during this event.

Players can revisit this event by setting Events to Winter's Feast in the world creation menu. However, event-only skins will be disabled when revisiting the event.

Winter Foods are exclusive Food items for the event. They have a 20% chance to be dropped randomly by killed Animals and Monsters. Much like Halloween Candies, they do not perish over time, and restore up to 2 Health, 2 Sanity and 3 Hunger. As an exception, the Eternal Fruitcake will be rejected by any character upon attempting to eat it, making it only useful for feeding other creatures (e.g. Pigs, to obtain Manure). All Winter Foods stack up to 40. Gingerbread Cookies, Sugar Cookies, Candy Canes, Eternal Fruitcakes and Chocolate Log Cakes can also be used to decorate Winter's Feast Trees.

The following Winter Foods are available:

Gifts work exactly like Bundled Supplies, containing up to 4 stacks of items. They can be created by players using Gift Wraps and vary in sizes and colors. Unlike Bundling Wraps, Gifts do not return the Gift Wrap's crafting materials when opened. Also, upon successfully opening a Loot Stash, 6 Gifts will drop containing items like Electric Milk, Gold Nuggets, Charcoal, Winter Food, and Boss loot, except for the Guardian's Horn.

Wurt

Gift Wraps work exactly like Bundling Wraps, except their crafting recipe is much cheaper and it gives 4 Gift Wraps per craft. Gift Wraps are found in the Survival Tab and crafted from 1 Papyrus and 1 Petals. They do not require prototyping. Perishable items stop spoiling when wrapped into a Gift Wrap. Some items are not allowed to be put in a Gift Wrap, for example Chester's Eye Bone, Star-Sky or the Stag Antler.

Winter's Feast Trees can be grown by planting a Pine Cone, a Birchnut or a Twiggy Tree Cone in a Festive Tree Planter. Like regular Evergreens, Birchnut Trees and Twiggy Trees, they take four stages to grow, however, once they are fully grown, they will stop their life cycle.

When fully grown, the trees can be decorated with Winter Ornaments and Winter Food. To do this, players have to access the tree's inventory. Like Backpacks, Winter's Feast Trees have eight item slots, allowing for eight different ornaments to be placed on them. Each slot corresponds to a specific spot on the tree. The trees can also serve as light sources, if they are decorated with Festive Lights.

Winter's Feast Trees can be chopped with an Axe, dropping the same resources a tree of the same type and of equal size drops, as well as any Ornaments placed on them. The Festive Tree Planter will also be destroyed and drop its crafting materials.

If a player sleeps within two pitchfork tiles of a Winter's Feast Tree, a Gift will appear under the tree. In order to receive the Gift, the player must sleep in darkness, without light. The player can also sleep with a weak Thermal Stone inventory light, or sleep with between 1 and 5 Festive Lights on the Winter's Feast Tree.

A soft ringing of a bell will be heard shortly after the player goes to sleep (or when darkness sufficiently engulfs the player), and waking up any time afterwards will allow the player to see the Gift next to the tree.

This feature has a cooldown of four days for a Gift of rare items, or the player will get Charcoal and a Winter's Feast treat from the Gift instead. The following table lists the items that can be obtained from the Gift. Trinkets, Festive Baubles, and Festive Lights can also be obtained from these Gifts (not listed in table).

The Festive Tree Planter is a craftable Structure located in the Structures Tab and requires 2 Manure and 1 Board to craft. It is always available to craft and does not require prototyping.

Festive Tree Planters can be Hammered like other craftable Structures, as long as they are empty or the planted Winter's Feast Tree is still a sapling. Destroying a Festive Tree Planter will return 1 Boards and 1 Manure, as well as a Pine Cone, Birchnut or Twiggy Tree Cone, if a sapling was growing in the planter.

Festive Baubles are decorative items meant to be placed on a Winter's Feast Tree. Mobs drop them randomly with a 0.5% chance, with the exclusion of Tentacles, Frogs, Reanimated Skeletons, and Killer Bees. They are also found in at least one of the gifts dropped by the Loot Stash, and by fishing in the Oasis Lake during Summer. When fishing up a Crumpled Package that was supposed to contain a Trinket, there is a 1/6 chance for it to be replaced with a plain ornament, and a 1/6 chance for a fancy ornament.

Festive Baubles stack up to 40, their spawn codes are "winter_ornament_plain1...8" and "winter_ornament_fancy1...4".

In 2017, eight more Festive Baubles were added to the game. Their spawn codes are "winter_ornament_plain9...12" and "winter_ornament_fancy5...8".

Festive Lights have an additional light radius in four different colors. They will twinkle constantly if used to decorate a tree or dropped on the ground, but have a limited duration lasting 160 days. However, their durability only depletes while in use. They currently only drop from Klaus and Deerclops, and can also be found by fishing in the Oasis Lake during Summer. When fishing up a Crumpled Package that was supposed to contain a Trinket, there is a 1/6 chance for it to be replaced with a Festive Light. Similar to Light Bulbs, they can also be used to refuel light sources such as Miner Hats, Hutch or Mushroom Lights, however they will not cause them to twinkle. Festive Lights are able to tint the Glowcap's light color.

Festive Lights do not stack, their spawn codes are "winter_ornament_light1...4".

In 2017, four more Festive Lights were added to the game. Their spawncodes are "winter_ornament_light5...8".

Gingerbread Pigs can be killed for 3 Cookie Crumbles and one Holiday Cheer.

The Winter's Feast Table is a Structure introduced in 2019. It requires 1 Board and 1 Beefalo Wool to craft. Only Winter's Feast dishes made from the Feast Tab can be placed on the table; any other food will be rejected. Multiple tables can be connected to each other to increase the amount of dishes.

When players feast at a Winter's Feast Table, they gain a buff that regenerates 0.5 Health Meter per second, 10 Sanity Meter per minute, and 75 Hunger Meter per day. Dishes on all connected tables are slowly consumed when feasting, for a total duration of 1 minute. The buff duration increases depending on the time of feasting, the number of dishes, the number of connected tables, the variety of dishes, and the number of players feasting at the same time. Each new type of dish adds between 72 seconds (with 1 player) and 134 seconds (with 8 players) of buff, and each duplicate dish adds 48 seconds of buff.

Detailed formula

The total duration of the buff starting from the begining of the feast is given by (in sec):

7 + time × [1.2 × (#type) × (#player)^0.3 + 0.8 × (#dish - #type)]

where time the duration of the feasting (in sec), #type is the number of different dishes on all connected tables, #player the number of players feasting, and #dish the total number of dishes.

Players dying with more than 25 seconds of buff will drop a Holiday Cheer.

Let's play a game! Use that big brain to match pairs of food from the feast!

A feastin' pair of birds is a minigame added to the Trade Inn in 2019. To access the game, the user must open the Trade Inn and click on the Snowbird on the top left. Similar to usual mix and match memory games, the game requires you to memorize the tiles and match them correctly. When a match is created, two tiles fall into the 3 x 2 grid, showing the tiles until the player skips, then flipping over. The game ends when/if the player runs out of their 3 starting guesses. There are only 5 types of tiles to ensure that there is always at least one match. If two Snow bird tiles are cleared, the Curio Collector gives you one extra guess. The goal of the game is to get the highest score.

The game is similar to a minigame added previously, titled Ravin' Wrapper Raiders, which was added in Hallowed Nights 2019. However, for A feastin' pair of birds, the grid is much smaller, and there are no tools.

If the player gets a score of 10 or more matches, they will be rewarded with a Snowbird Profile Icon.
