Hobbits are a merry people. They love to eat, preferably multiple times a day and they love everything that has to do with food and drink. Since July 26th, 2012 (Earth Reckoning) The Shire knows a new festival: The Farmer’s Faire. Although it takes place in the Shire, all Peoples are welcome. Once you get the invitation in the mail, be sure to go to Festival Announcer in Bywater and you can participate in all the events during the festival!
