This years celebration – InnFest 2019 and Lovecraft’s 129th Birthday are coming up soon. We would also like to announce the introduction of a new website with our own domain name as well: http://slovecraft.com
Visit Innsmouth, HP Lovecraft Tribute – early 1930s Massachusetts @ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/17/34/1201
Just a short history of how it all came together!
The Innsmouth region was inspired by the writings of the horror fiction writer Howard Phillips (H.P.) Lovecraft. He is considered the “Grandfather of Cosmic Horror and Weird Fiction”, inspiring literally all horror, as well as many fantasy and science, fiction authors during and since his time. The Shadows over Innsmouth, written in 1931, is what this great recion was modeled after. A work of the heart, Innsmouth in Second Life was originally founded and created by Darmin Darkes and her team. The region was actually “born” in Second Life on August 20th, 2009, HP Lovecraft’s birthday, making this Innsmouth’s 10th Anniversary in Second Life. This year there is going to be a huge celebration.
The sim’s current owner, Arik Metzger (AriktheRed), had founded the Lovecraft Festivals of Second Life (LoveFest) in 2012. Upon hearing of that Innsmouth;s founder/owner was facing giving up the region in 2015, Arik launched the “Save Innsmouth!” fundraiser campaign.

New to the Lovecraft Country regions, the Miskatonic University and “Arkham” area will be the landing point for the event! During the event we may see the Miskatonic Cheer Squad giving us greeting and cheers through the week!
Since 2012, “LoveFest” has brought Second Life a large and exciting celebration of H.P. Lovecraft’s birthday. Since this is the 10th Anniversary of Innsmouth, we are celebrating “InnFest”! Some of the grid’s best DJs participating, including Archangelo Hellmann, AngelKitty Skizm, Bloodwain Arun and more. Live entertainers will also grace the party with such names including, but not limited to, the wonderful sounds of Rosedrop Rust, Larree Quixote, Wald Schridde and Vampink Cuddihy. There will be movies you won’t want to miss, shown at Innsmouth’s famous “Arkham Theater”, managed by and courtesy of Thisbe Blackadder (also known for her work with the renowned MST3K Theater in SL). There will also be a Burlesque Show produced and directed by TerpsiCorps ARTWerks.
All of these great festivities will begin with an opening ceremony conducted by Arik Metzger, himself, on August 20th at 5:00 pm SLT, and ending with a Masquerade Ball on August 27th at 9:00 pm SLT.
