Our good friend White Lady of Rohan sends along this tidbit about ‘A Long Expected Party’ coming in Sept 2008:

A Long Expected Party“Greetings fellow Hobbits and other Middle-earth denizens! Bilbo would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the celebration of his birthday, during the weekend of September 25th-28th, 2008 (( that’s next year folks )) at Shaker Village in Central Kentucky. Shaker Village is as much like the Shire as any place on Earth. We will have games, music, guests and much more! Bilbo is waiting for hear from you. Please check out our site and come join us for the fun and Fellowship!”

TORn met the organizers of this event at DragonCon and are pretty impressed with what they have planned. Check out their official website!
