Saturday, 8 October 2005
7pm – Midnight
Sequoia Lodge, Oakland Hills

Elves, hobbits, dwarves, men, ents, wizards — and yes, even orcs — are invited to join us for an evening of feasting, music, dancing, and the magical words of Tolkien. Our location is a beautiful redwood hall surrounded by trees in the hills of Oakland (Rivendell for our purposes).

Costumes inspired by the books, the films or the Medieval era are appropriate for this event.

Detailed information about the event, including the menu, schedule of activities, and costume suggestions, is available on our website:


Advance tickets are required:
GBACG members $39.50
Non-members $44.50

You must be 13 years or older to attend The Lord of the Rings Feast.

From Aug. 13-31 only GBACG members may purchase tickets (up to four). Space is limited. We expect to sell out this event. You may join GBACG now and buy your tickets to The Lord of the Rings Feast during the members-only presale.

On Sept. 1, tickets go on sale to the general public. After Sept. 1, you may purchase as many tickets as you wish.
