Tolkien events around the globe, or how to meet Bilbo and Gandalf in contemporary Middle-earth
See international calendar of Tolkien events 2019 to help you meet Bilbo and Gandalf in our Middle-earth.
Festival of the memory of Numenor at the Prancing Dreadnote bar, Moscow, Russia
Magic boat in Neskuchny garden near Eglador, Moscow, Russia
Finrod rock opera by Eterius theatre, Moscow, Russia

J. R. R. Tolkien's birthday, St. Petersburg, Russia
It is not easy finding an event nearby or somewhere at a distant spot of our planet where one can meet friends or those who think of the Tolkien's legendarium in the same vein.
I myself have encountered a lot of websites and communities that provide extensive material, yet my wish and search mostly concentrated on finding something really interesting, in line of an adventure that Bilbo would love to have (looks like a role-playing game or a tournament now) or an event for lady Eowyn and Arwen (seemingly a ball). Hopefully the organizers of the great and powerful events in Middle-earth around us will soon come up with something that has a little of both for all Tolkien lovers alike.
Meanwhile here are some of the findings over the net that now encircles our world:
