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!
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. If you are unsure what London time is in your current time zone, you can use this time zone converter.
Current times are:
- London Time
- 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
Winterstock is on this weekend. Them even say that the Brandy Badgers have woken up from their winter snooze to go visit there. Who will herd them rascally berry-eaters over there, though? Come see on Sunday!
Date: Sunday January 20
Time: 7PM UK time (2PM servertime)
Location: Landroval server, Thorin’s Gate, small lake just pond of Frerin’s Court (near Silver Deep Mine)
The annual Winterstock Music Festival, presented by the Lonely Mountain Band. All shows will be held at the frozen pond next to the lower-entrance to the Silver Deep Mine in Thorin’s Gate ((Ered Luin region: 14.6S, 102.2W)). There will also be pie, ale, and pipeweed, but do dress warmly! Lots of bands will play over the weekend, including several from Laurelin.
The Songburrow Strollers played at Winterstock in 2014, while the Strollers herded the Badgers there in 2015. The Badgers played on their own in 2017 and 2018, and they will do so this time too. Would some kind hobbit put out a trail of berries for them, hm? Or perhaps we need to hire us some herders…
Come along, bounce and dance, and bring berries to feed the Badgers!
To attend the event, you will have to roll up a character on the Landroval server. The event is held in a safe, low-level zone, so you won’t have to level up much to attend. Just get out of the starter zone, and you can hitch a ride to Thorin’s Gate and follow the stream of folks towards the pond.
Please note: While us Grand Order hobbits on occasion visit other servers, our home is, has always been and will be on Laurelin. So this is a rare visit for most of us to furrin lands!
Sunday’s schedule is below. For the full schedule, see the Winterstock site
Hobnanigans, AKA. chicken ball, is available this weekend!
All times servertime

The US and the EU moves to Daylight Saving Time (DST) at different dates.
- The US moves the clocks forward one hour on the morning (2AM) of the second Sunday in March. In 2020, this is March 8th
- The EU moves the clocks forward one hour on the morning (1AM) of the last Sunday in March. In 2016, this is March 29th
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 servertime (US/Boston time) is usually 5 hours, it will only be 4 hours until the EU clocks move. 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.
