Community Events: July 7th-13th


Community Calendar:

This is going to be a great weekend in LOTRO: we’ve got the Weatherstock Concert Series and the Festival of the White Lady on Landroval while the Summer of Love Festival comes to Belegaer.   We posted a preview of the WCS yesterday with information on all performers, but the lineup for the Summer of Love is also very impressive.  Unfortunately, I do not have as much information about all of the German bands so I will not be doing a full write-up for that event.  However, the full schedule for these two events may be found below.  Please note that some regular events on these two servers will be canceled because of these special occasions.

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.

Server calendars: Arkenstone CalendarBelegaer CalendarBrandywine CalendarCrickhollow CalendarEvernight Calendar, Gladden CalendarGwaihir CalendarLandroval CalendarLaurelin Calendar, and Sirannon Calendar

All events listed in Eastern Daylight Time (-4 GMT)/server time.  Most Laurelin events will also be listed at British time, BST (+1 GMT), and all events on Belegaer and Sirannon are listed with CEST (+2 GMT).  You may add events or post corrections in the comments section, but the fastest and best way to get it on this page is to submit a form.  I’m always open to feedback and suggestions, both here and through the submissions form, so let me know if there’s something we should feature.  Thanks for reading!
