Do you wonder how long is one day in the Stardew Valley? Or maybe you’re curious how long is an hour in this game?
Let’s dive into it.
Time in the Stardew Valley is measured differently than this in real life.
10 minutes (each interval) are equal to 7.13 seconds of real-time, so approximately:
However, you should note that this is only in the theory. In fact, many players skip a lot of time by going to the bed earlier. The majority of us usually don’t wait until 2 am to finish the day as late as possible. Tomorrow is another day, so there is no need to do that (until you don’t have to do something on this specific day).
This amount of time could be also much longer. When you’re pausing the game or doing some things on the GUI (e.g. checking the map etc.) time usually stops.
Each day in Stardew Valley takes 20 hours. It starts at 6 am and ends at 2 am the next day.
The virtual clock is running every 10 in-game minutes.
There are 7 days per week. Same as in the real world, it’s obviously: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in that order.
Technically, there are no months in Stardew Valley. Instead of them, there are four seasons. Each of them is 28-days long.

Fortunately, Stardew Valley has no official end, so there is no time limit for the overall game. That means you can keep playing as long as you want. There are only length limits per days, weeks, seasons etc. You can easily check more details at the beginning of this post.
Some of you may be asking if there are some tricks to stop the time or make it slower.
You can stop the time by clicking ESC or opening GUI elements. If you want to do that while playing, then you should start looking for some modifications.
By default, it’s also not possible to make the time slower. But if you want to, you can also get some modifications.
