Community Events: July 14th-20th


Community Calendar:

We have a relatively quiet week between the mass of events of last week and next Saturday’s Weatherstock, but there are still many weekly concerts, RP gatherings, and other group activities throughout the game.  There will be one very special concert Sunday on Belegaer with Die Fäuste Durins. Breemarsch der Durins Faust der Gerechten and Verbunds für hobbitisches Brauchtum will both be taking the week off so everyone may attend the concert.

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, Gwaihir, and Sirannon 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!

Looking back:

Zedrock recorded last weekend’s Weatherstock Concert Series and all videos are on his Twitch feed.  Beuno Willowtree posted a gallery of pictures from the first day of the Summer of Love on the Auenländer Wochenblatt.

Festival time:

The scavenger hunt is now over.  The summer festival finishes up on July 17th at 3am EDT/server time.  Fibro Jedi has a wonderful overview of all of the quests.  Wandering Around Arda previewed the new cosmetics and mount.  Elisapee has a gif of the new bubble pipe fish emote and revealed that it comes with sound.

The good news (for official event lovers) is that there we won’t have much downtime between festivals.  The Farmer’s Faire will return on August 23rd.
