Raise a glass, enjoy a feast and say happy birthday to Frodo and Bilbo Baggins on International Hobbit Day. 

After their inaugural International Hobbit Day in 2017, Hobbiton Movie Set Tours will once again host Hobbit fans on the 12-acre site,  tucked away in the rolling hills of Waikato.

Start your day with a tour of the fantastical movie set, before spending the evening in the special event area created especially for the occasion. Feast on traditional Hobbit fare in the vibrant Marketplace, where you can pick up freshly-made artisan produce included breads, meats and cheeses.

Inside the Green Dragon and Party marquee, gorge on a feast, where second helpings are encouraged.

Finish the day with a moonlit journey back over the rolling hills and past the Hobbit holes, where lanterns glowing against the darkness will guide you home.
