Hatapalooza was an event in January 2013 where Jammers could find three hat caravans, located in Canyons Pathway, Sarepia Forest, and Mt. Shiveer. It brought back hats from previous years, including the Beta Testing period. On every day, except Monday and the first day, a rare hat was for sale. This rare hat was different; it had never been seen in Animal Jam before, and it was not reused from previous years. On July 10, 2014, and then again on May 26, 2016 and May 4, 2017, Hatapalooza returned to Jamaa with not only the hat shops returning, but additionally putting existing hats from all over the shops on sale.
