| "The three of you are hereby banished from Edoras." - Gríma Wormtongue
Due to Update 27.3 - August 19, 2020 this festival has been merged into the Farmers Faire, this page is now obsolete.
The Summer Festival is a special event to celebrate the season of Summer in Middle-earth. There are various events to participate in that award Summer Festival Tokens which players can exchange for cosmetic items, decorations, steeds and more.
In addition to the events and rewards of previous Summer Festivals, this year introduces a new Steed of Summer's Night cosmetics.
Note: Due to the introduction of the Midsummer Festival in 2020, the Summer Festival and Farmer's Faire have been merged into the one event, as the Farmer's Faire. All of the Summer Festival content has been retained. Summer Festival Tokens have been converted to Farmer's Faire Tokens.

Inn League and Ale Association
The Inn League and the Ale Association are running their activities during the faire.
- Main article: Dance of the Races
During all seasonal Festivals, Dance Leaders will teach characters up to eight special racial dances (two from each Race) by completing dance lessons. There is one Dance Leader located in each of the festival grounds of Thorin's Hall Inn and The Festival Garden in Ered Luin, The Party Tree in The Shire, and the Festival Grounds in Bree-land.
Dance lessons take place approximately every 20 minutes, and the quests are available for about 5 minutes before the dance begins. As of U20, the quest start times are random.
When the Dance Leader starts, target the leader and follow their instructions using the commands /dance1, /dance2, or /dance3 as they instruct you. The time to perform each step decreases with the quest's progression.
At the end of the lesson, the Dance Leader returns to their original position and you are able to select your reward: either the first or second dance emote from that race. Complete the lessons again to learn all the dances!
- Main article: Festival Horse Races
Each festival brings exciting horse races to The Shire Race-track and the Bree-land Festival Grounds. By completing a race in time, players can win festival tokens which can be exchanged for festival rewards.
