Fans in the J.R.R. Tolkien community are very warm and very friendly people. We really want to encourage festival attendees, performers and exhibitors alike to to get out there and mingle with everyone on site at Festival in the Shire. No matter what age, status, culture or level of Tolkien fan you are, we want you to get out and meet other like minded fans and make life long friendships that will continue for years to come. Whether you come alone or in a group you will be with friends. We feel that a successful Festival in the Shire will be one where a supportive and caring atmosphere is fostered for all involved.

Note: FitS will not under any circumstances tolerate any bullying, antagonistic or threatening behavior to any of our attendees, staff or anyone on site. We will have professional security staff 24 hours throughout the event. Offenders will be ejected from the site with no refund and banned from future FitS events. We want to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere on site so we would encourage other festival attendees to report any anti social or hostile behavior to our staff who will promptly deal with it.
