Summer Festival 2017 – Sunflower


Summer Festival is here again this year from Wednesday, June 28 to Monday, July 17! This year’s theme is the Sunflower.

Upon logging in, you will be invited to accept a map, which will take you directly to the Party Tree in the Shire, where most of the quests are located. However, the festival takes place in all of the following locations:

Shire: the Party Tree, Bywater (Mudbottom) Lake, Delving Fields, Michel Delving Stable-Master (access to remote location for Quest: To the Taste of Hobbiton)
Bree: Festival Grounds, Chetwood Pond
Thorin’s Hall: Thorin’s Hall Inn, River in Thorin’s Hall, Thorin’s Hall Stable-Master (access to remote location for Quest: To the Keg-Races)
Ered Luin: Duillond Festival Garden, Celondim docks

If you want to see all the available Summer Festival NPCs per each location, click here.

Each of the four starter-areas have a corresponding fishing area, where you can accept fishing quests and barter for area-specific rewards. At the Bree Festival Grounds and Celondim Festival Garden, you can barter for general Summerfest rewards.

NPCs at the Shire Party Tree, Bywater Lake, Thorin’s Hall Inn, and Duillond Festival Garden have quests where you can search for 5 missing items per quest.

Special horses at the Michel Delving and Thorin’s Hall Stable-Masters will take you to remote locations where you can complete the Taste of Hobbiton and Keg Races, respectively.
