Richfest is the third of the Greyhawk Calendar's four festival weeks. Celene is full once again and high summer officially begins. Midsummer Night (Richfest 4) is the one night of the year when both moons, Celene and Luna, are full; all lycanthropes are active during this time, and things of great portent are likely to occur (depending on the positions of the wandering stars in the lairs of the Zodiac). Richfest is a weeklong holiday among the halflings of Elmshire. Followers of the Old Faith and Sotillion consider Richfest an important time of year.
