It’s safe to say that all Stardew Valley players will come across a building in Pelican Town called the Community Center. Entering this establishment for the first time and you'll be greeted with an old, raggedy, broken-down building. But you can restore the Community Center in Stardew Valley to its former glory with a little work and the help of this guide! So let's get to it.
Unlocking the Community Center in Stardew Valley
Introduced in Dev Update #20
, unlocking the Community Center in Stardew Valley isn’t difficult. You must only enter Pelican Town
from Spring 5
between 8 AM and 1 PM
. A cutscene with Mayor Lewis
should play, and he’ll ask you to investigate the establishment’s pest problem.
Upon entering, you’ll find a book written in a strange language. Go outside for now, and travel to the Wizard’s home
. Doing so will trigger another cutscene, allowing you to read the book inside the Community Center.
After finishing the second cutscene, you can donate items to the Community Center’s restoration.
Community Center Bundles
Efforts to restore the Community Center in Stardew Valley are separated into Bundles. Donating the correct item to the appropriate Bundle will give you fairly minor rewards. But completing an entire Bundle will generate a major perk, such as repairing the bridge to the Quarry.
Crafts Room Bundle
Completing the Crafts Room is one of the easiest, if not the most laid-back, collection quests for the Community Center. The items required to restore this room are fairly easy to find. But the catch is that you must complete all four seasons at least once to finish the restoration.
Completion Reward: Repairs the bridge to the Quarry.

The challenge with completing the Pantry room in the Community Center is to farm the right crops. You must grow a wide range of crops throughout the year. So, you might want to spare some room on your farm for the required crops instead of focusing on the most lucrative plants
Completion Reward: Repairs the Greenhouse.

Bulletin Board Bundle
At first, restoring the Community Center Bulletin Board might seem easy. But, you might still spend a lot of time finishing this area, especially with some items tied with RNG, like the Fried Egg (which you can randomly find in Krobus’ shop on Saturdays).
Completion Reward: Adds 500 Friendship Points to every non-datable NPC.

Boiler Room Bundle
Ores are the primary ingredients to restore the Boiler Room in the Community Center. You must venture into the Mines to collect many of these ores.
Completion Reward: Unlocks the Minecart, enabling fast travel to various destinations, like the Mines, Quarry, and Bus Station.
||Copper Bar, Iron Bar, and Gold Bar
||Quartz, Earth Crystal, Frozen Tear, and Fire Quartz
||Small Magnet Ring
||Any two of the following: 99x Slime, 10x Bat Wing, Solar Essence, and Void Essence

Unlike the other rooms, the bundles associated with the Vault only require you to donate money. New players may find it challenging to gather gold pieces to unlock this Community Center room. But veteran Stardew Valley farmers may not mind spending the “few” extra cash to restore the Vault.
