Dance of the Moonlight Jellies in Stardew Valley explained

Out of all the festivals in Stardew Valley, the Dance of the Moonlight Jellies is the simplest, because all you have to do is watch some jellyfish.

Simply head down to the beach, talk to the other festival attendees if you feel like it, and then talk to Lewis to begin the main event.

After you talk to Lewis, you'll find yourself standing by the edge of the pier, watching the jellyfish float by. Most will look like a blue balloon, but there's a chance you might spy a rare green jellyfish.
