The Laurelin hobbit calendar

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:

  • Servertime
  • London Time

If you are unsure what London time is in your current time zone, you can use this time zone converter.

Colour categories:

  • 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

DST difference EU – US spring 2020
Mar 8 – Mar 28 all-day

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.
