After being delayed a week, the brand new festival, the Farmer’s Faire, is live as promised today on all servers! The festival will run from July 26th – August 13th (I believe – the calendar hasn’t been updated on the LOTRO site.).
After speaking to some players I think there is some confusion that this is the new summer festival. Not so. This is a brand new additional festival. Summer festival is still on and is scheduled to run next month. Not sure if the dates will change since the Farmer’s Faire is going to last an extra week due to it’s delay.
We will be compiling a complete guide for this new festival but since this is a brand new festival, it’s going to take us some time to collect all the data and type up the post. We will work hard to get it out to you as soon as possible but don’t let that stop you from heading out to Bywater to join in the festivities!
Update 7/27/12: The guide is now available!
We have some new official screenshots released today from Turbine to share as well!
