This is a calendar of hobbit events on the LOTRO Laurelin server, typically events in the Shire and hosted by hobbits. If you have events you want added to the calendar, send me a letter!
Finding the correct time for your location
All times in the calendar are given in current London/UK time. The LOTRO servertime (Boston/US East Coast time) is usually 5 hours behind London time. To see the servertime while in-game, just type /servertime.
Current times are:
- London Time
If you are unsure what London time is in your current time zone, you can use this time zone converter.
- Blue: General announcements of special interest dates (hobbit months, festival periods etc.)
- Green: Public events, open for all hobbits
- Red: Kin events for hobbits in the Grand Order of the Lost Mathom
Bilbo has his birthday on September 22nd, and there is a mini-event to celebrate this!

The US and the EU moves off Daylight Saving Time (DST) at different dates.
- The EU moves the clocks back one hour on the morning (2AM) of the last Sunday in October. In 2020, this is October 25th.
- The US moves the clocks back one hour on the morning (2AM) of the first Sunday in November. In 2020, this is November 1st.
In this period, the time difference between the EU and the US is one hour LESS than it usually is. One example: While the difference between UK/London time and US/Boston time is usually 5 hours, this week it will only be 4 hours. This has a lot of impact on event planning in LOTRO, so make sure you know which times you use.
Here is more information on DST and event planning in LOTRO.
