Grand Garages is the first Live Event in The Sims FreePlay during the Grand Garages Update in April 2019. Like the previous live events, it unlocks new items and lasts for 10 days.

When the timer for the 10 days ends, there will be a 2 day period afterwards to purchase any of the remaining prizes. You will not be able to collect anymore arts and crafts resources or constructor coins. Once the timer for that period ends, the resources will convert into Simoleons.


The tutorial is the same for all Live/Community Events.

  • Place a craft station
  • Craft candles
  • Restock a station
  • Buy the first prize
  • Use the spin flower
  • Check personal progress
  • Check daily goals
  • Collect bonuses
  • Continue collecting items

Note: the goal for restocking lasts 10 seconds. When a station requires restocking during the event, it will take 2 hours 30 minutes.

Coin flower patch

The coin flower patch (shown right) is used to earn Constructor Coins. Constructor coins (CC for short) are the fifth required resource alongside the craft resources to progress along the bar and earn the prizes. During the tutorial (shown above) the first spin from the patch is free; after that you can either spend 450 candles or 25 SPs to earn constructor coins. Each Live/Community Event has the same garden patch, except it changes colour and uses a different resource (for example, in the Prince and the Pocket Sized Princess event, the patch was purple and required 450 daisies to use).
