The weekly community events post will be on hiatus until September 2.  In lieu of weekly posts, I will highlight a few scheduled events coming up this month, list out the weekly and monthly events that are always on the calendar, and share my main information sources so you may keep informed of activities still to come.  If you know of an upcoming event that isn’t on the list or a resource I’ve overlooked, please post in the comments section below.

As always, events are listed at Eastern Daylight Time/server time (-4 GMT) unless otherwise noted.


This month’s featured event:

The 7th Annual Month of the Chicken continues throughout August with multiple activities every weekend on Landroval.  Chicken Camp has started but there’s still time to catch up.  Many more activities are yet to come.  For a full schedule of events and more information please visit the official forums post.

LOTRO Artists: The premiere source of information about concerts and major events around the game

Player events forum: Most major events will be listed in this official forum

Official server forums: Sometimes people will share events just on their own server’s forum or will give additional details that may not be found elsewhere

Happenings on Landroval: A general listing of various activities on the Landroval server generally updated on Thursdays

The Bramblebury Gazette: News and events from the Laurelin server

Laurelin Archives: RP and activities portal for the Laurelin server

Crickhollow Music: Features information on upcoming Crickhollow concerts and other events

Auenländer Wochenblatt: This German language weekly RP newspaper comes out every Sunday with a calendar of upcoming activities and event write-ups for the Belegaer server
