In The Sims 3, community events are a weekly event or a leisure event. Sims can read about them in the newspaper.

Weekly EventsEdit

Weekly events are competitions that grant Simoleon prizes when won. There are four kinds of weekly events. Among them, two or three random events are held each week. The time, day of week and event location are fixed by the kind of event and most start in the afternoon. Locations may vary. Prizes are §1,000 for all events, but an ambitious Sim may get up to §2,000.

A new weekly schedule of upcoming events is announced in the daily newspaper each Sunday morning. Event icons are displayed on the game map while the event is in progress. Sims can participate in the event by visiting the event location and accepting the event opportunity. Sims should not leave the event location and finish the goal to win before the competition time expires.

The following table summarizes the information detailed in the Weekly Events and Leisure Events sections.
