Bilbo's Farewell Party was a grand celebration held by Bilbo Baggins on his 111st birthday in the Party Field, on September 22, T.A. 3001. It was coincidentally also the 33rd birthday of his nephew Frodo Baggins.

History

Bilbo Baggins had been planning to abandon the Shire and eventually return to the Rivendell and spend the rest of his life with Elrond and the Elves. He scheduled his appeareance as an abrupt event to concur during his birthday speech.

The party was double and also was celebrating Frodo's coming-of-age in his 33 years. Another significance was that Bilbo's and Frodo's years on that day summed up 144 - a gross, and for that reason a portion of the party was "invitation only" with 144 guests.

It was a huge and expensive celebration attended by most hobbits in the area. The party included copious amounts of food and drink, and Gandalf the Grey provided fireworks for entertainment.

The occasion was notable in Hobbiton for Bilbo's abrupt disappearance (he used the Ring to disappear at the end of his speech). Bilbo then passed behind the surprised guests and returned to Bag End where Gandalf was waiting for him, and persuaded Bilbo to leave the Ring in Frodo's keeping when he departed.
