Community Calendar:

Next weekend will be huge.  We’ve got the Weatherstock Concert Series, the Festival of the White Lady, and the Summer of Love Festival.  We have more information on each of these events in the coming soon section.  But there’s still plenty to see this week, from the regular weekly concerts and gatherings to several special events on Belegaer.  Today we’ll focus on some of the great events on the German language servers.

This listing of featured events is only published on Fridays, but our Google calendar is kept up to date throughout the week and includes details on many more activities.  We always aim to have the most complete events calendar in the game and accept events of all types on all servers.  Take a look at this week’s agenda for upcoming events around LOTRO and copy some or all events to your personal calendar.  You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page and on the calendar is to submit a form.
