Oxonmoot is the special event of the Tolkien Society year held on a weekend close to Bilbo & Frodo's birthdays in an Oxford college. There is a range of activities such as academic talks & papers, workshops (see the Call for Papers below if you wish to offer something), new/second-hand and rare book dealers, an art show (with professional and amateur works), plus a quiet area where you can drink tea, fill up the corners and chat with old or new friends. Of course there is also a party including a masquerade (costume is optional) and entertainments. It is a great time for making new friends in the Society. On Sunday there is a wreath laying and short act of remembrance, Enyalië, at Tolkien's grave.
