Stardew Valley’s Community Center is one of the main methods of tracking your progression throughout the game. It’s by no means mandatory, and you can actually choose to go against it if you feel like doing so, but here’s how to rebuild the Community Center in Stardew Valley.

Stardew Valley Community Center Overview

Once you’ve made it to the 5th day of your first Spring in Stardew Valley, entering Pelican Town from the bus stop between 8 am and 1 pm while it’s not raining will trigger a cutscene with Mayor Lewis. He’ll tell you all about the old Community Center and how it’s fallen into disarray, and from that point on you’ll be able to add items to the different bundles and slowly work your way to completion.

There are six bundles to be completed in the Community Center, with each room having a corresponding bundle to go along with it. If you complete every bundle in every room, not only will the building be restored to its former glory, but it’ll also close down the Joja Mart on the East side of town.

Crafts Room in Stardew Valley

The Crafts Room will contain bundles that are mostly focused around items that you can forage at different times of year. It’s one of the easier rooms to complete, being possible to complete on your first year as long as you make sure to go out foraging each season.

The pantry in the Community Center is going to be for all of the crop- and animal-related bundles. You’ll need some specific crops from each season except winter, but you’ll also need to hold onto some of the Gold-Quality crops you’ve got if you want to get through these bundles quickly.

The Fish Tank is going to be for all of your aquatic needs, be it with or without fins. You’ll need to fish in different locations to complete this bundle as well as use some crab pots, but also take note of the time of day and weather for each fish you’re looking for — some fish are much more picky than others.

Reward: The glittering boulder is removed.

The Boiler Room is going to require you to do some mining and exploring, but nothing in these bundles will be too difficult or dangerous to attain. You’ll just have to make it down low enough in the caves to encounter certain items, but you won’t have to go into the Skull Cavern for anything here.

Reward: Minecarts around town are repaired allowing fast travel to and from the bus station, the mines and the Blacksmith.

  • Blacksmith’s Bundle – Copper Bar, Iron Bar, Gold Bar

Vault in Stardew Valley

The Vault is the most straightforward of the rooms, but also makes you wonder just what kind of operation the Junimos are running in there. You’ll just need to have the corresponding amount of gold in your inventory when you go to complete the bundles, and it’ll go through just like any regular transaction would.

Reward: Bus is repaired and Calico Desert is unlocked.

  • 2,500g Bundle – Purchase with 2,500g
  • 5,000g Bundle – Purchase with 5,000g
  • 10,000g Bundle – Purchase with 10,000g
  • 25,000g Bundle – Purchase with 25,000g

That’s really all there is to rebuilding the Community Center in Stardew Valley. If you miss something that you needed to grow or catch in a certain season, no worries! Just make sure to pay attention when that season comes around the next year and you can fill them in then.
