Lore

This enormous tree has long been known as a place where festive occasions can be celebrated by the Hobbits of the Shire. Standing on the outskirts of Hobbiton proper it can be seen for quite some ways, and during festivities it is often hung with dozens of bright streamers and lanterns providing a cheery atmosphere for most any events. — Deed text


On 22 September, III 3001, the famous Birthday Party for Bilbo Baggins' 111st and Frodo Baggins' 33rd birthdays was held at the Party Field. Bilbo's farewell speech was delivered under the Party Tree. — tuckborough.net


After the current Lotro era, on SR 3 November 1419, Samwise Gamgee returns to the Shire:
'As they crossed the bridge and looked up the Hill they gasped. Even Sam's vision in the Mirror had not prepared him for what they saw. ... "They've cut it down!" cried Sam. "They've cut down the Party Tree!" He pointed to where the tree had stood under which Bilbo had made his Farewell Speech. It was lying lopped and dead in the field. As if this was the last straw Sam burst into tears. ...
'The little silver nut he planted in the Party Field where the tree had once been; and he wondered what would come of it. ... Spring surpassed his wildest hopes. ... In the Party Field a beautiful young sapling leaped up: it had silver bark and long leaves and burst into golden flowers in April. It was indeed a mallorn, and it was the wonder of the neighbourhood.' — The Return of the King, by Tolkien
