The following is a list of events by year.
First Community Day
Pikmin Bloom's first Community Day event occurred on November 13th, 2021. It was set to run from 9:00am to 6:00pm local time, however, due to network issues making players unable to access the game, it was extended to run to 8:00pm. Bonuses of this event included:

This event was announced on December 2nd, 2021. During this event, the step counter on the main menu was replaced with a special poinsettia-themed step counter graphic, which linked to the news menu when tapped before reaching the goal, and the badge's information page after reaching the goal. (This made the regular step counter inaccessible.) This step graphic returned in every subsequent Community Day event, with different theming to match each event's promoted flower. Following the event, challenges gave poinsettia nectar instead of pansy nectar.
Holiday Roadside Decor Pikmin

There was another effect of this event which was announced later, which was that coins will be earned 1 for every 250 flowers planted instead of 1 for every 500 flowers planted, capped at 60 coins per day, and lasting for the duration of the event.
