The culture of the Imladhrim or People of Imladris is that of the Elves who dwell in that vale under the lordship of Elrond Half-elven. (In Sindarin, the most common Elvish language spoken in the Third Age, the -rim suffix turns a word into the adjective portion of a class plural form.)

Imladris itself was founded as a refuge for those fleeing the fall of Eregion during the War of the Elves and Sauron in the Second Age. There, located beside the Loudwater is Elrond's House, the Last Homely House West of the Mountains, beyond the Edge of the Wild. It is where Thorin and Company and one Bilbo Baggins were supplied and their map read by Elrond. It is where Gandalf sent Frodo and the Ring for safekeeping and from where the Fellowship of the Ring set off on its quest to the Cracks of Doom after the Council of Elrond met. It is the home of Elrond Half-elven, mighty among Elves and Men. The inhabitants of the Valley come from a variety of backgrounds. Some are old and wise like the advisers of Elrond at the council, others are joyous and mischievous like those who welcomed the dwarves and Bilbo upon their arrival.
The Imladhrim culture in Elendor is one of four Elven cultures. Geographically it is the smallest, but it is probably one of the most 'worldly' as Elrond often hosts visitors from afar and often sends out messengers of his own to other cultures.
The people of Imladris are made up of all three clans of Elves still found in Middle-earth: Noldor, Sindar, and Silvan. The latter two are the most numerous. The people are grouped into four houses, the lords and ladies of those houses having directly pledged themselves and their folk to Elrond. In addition, there are many smaller houses led by lords and ladies, mostly Noldor, who stay on in Imladris due to their friendships with Elrond and his kin.
