ROBERT E. HOWARD DAYS 2021 will take place on June 11th & 12th at The Robert E. Howard Museum in Cross Plains, Texas!

Project Pride of Cross Plains and the City of Cross Plains, in conjunction with The Robert E. Howard Foundation, have determined conditions have improved enough to host the event this year.

And Roy Thomas has agreed to return as our Guest of Honor as we celebrate 50 - uh, 51 Years of REH in Comics!

Over the next week we will be firming up our events, activities and programming, so stay tuned for those via the various social media sites. Look for all of the "regular" happenings to occur.

As we move forward with programming, we need to inform you that all these announcements, plans and schedules are subject to change. With the pandemic news and health procedures changing week to week, please be aware that Howard Days could be altered. But we are proceeding with our plans for this year, based on currently available information. These decisions are being closely monitored and we will keep everyone posted via various social media. Please note that we will abide by whatever regulations are set forth by the City of Cross Plains at the time of Howard Days.

As of today, however, (and this is NOT an April Fools Day prank!) Howard Days is happening on June 11th & 12th. We hope to see you in Cross Plains and we're looking forward to The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom!

Y'all come!

 Today would have been Robert E. Howard's 115th birthday.

Let's all brandish our Bowies and blaze our pistolas in his honor. In the absence of a big knife or a nice gun, let's raise a glass and read a favorite Howard story in his honor.

Thanks, Ol' Two-Gun for all the great words!

With the Covid-19 pandemic still raging across the world, we want you to know that the Robert E. Howard Foundation, Project Pride of Cross Plains and the City of Cross Plains, Texas, have decided to delay any announcements about Howard Days 2021 until the end of March.

While Howard Days still could happen on the scheduled dates of June 11th and 12th, we will need to monitor the up-to-date information about the easing of the pandemic to make an educated decision.

Above all, the health and safety of the City of Cross Plains and its residents, along with the hundreds of REH fans coming to Howard Days from literally all over the world is of utmost concern. So our decision will be guided first by Cross Plains and come on or before the end of March.

Check again on this page or on the Robert E. Howard Facebook page for updated info.

We appreciate your understanding at this time.

June 11 - 1936 and 2020

We are doubly sad this year that June 11th not only represents the anniversary of Bob Howard's death but also the Howard Days that just won't be.

When Bob decided to end his time, he had no idea at the Legacy that would remain. We can be sad that he left us, but happy that he left us so much.

Howard Days in 2021 will happen on Friday and Saturday, June 11th and 12th. The Thursday before is always an "unofficial" day of celebration, so maybe because we're missing out this year, we could make Thursday an Official Howard Day?!

Something to think about while we plan ahead for next year. Hope y'all stay healthy and we'll see you in Cross Plains before you know it!

Howard Days Help!

Well, this should have been the week we were all gathering in Cross Plains, Texas, to celebrate the Life and Work of Robert E. Howard. But 2020 is certainly not your typical year.

While the Robert E. Howard fan community is pretty bummed that Howard Days 2020 has been cancelled, let's not forget that Project Pride of Cross Plains still needs our help.

Howard Days is not only The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom, but is also the big yearly fund-raiser for Project Pride to maintain the house and grounds of the Robert E. Howard Museum.
No HD this year means zero donations for upkeep on the Museum, which is a year-long endeavor.

So, we're hoping you can find a few pazoors in your purse to send along to the fine folks at Project Pride to make up for not having our "Howard Family Reunion" this year. Please donate what you can to their Pay Pal account at or send a check to Project Pride, POB 534, Cross Plains, TX 76443.

Anything you can give will be sincerely appreciated and you will know that you are involved with continuing the Legacy of Robert E. Howard.

We hope to see y'all in 2021 on June 11 and 12. Roy Thomas has agreed to come back as GOH and we'll have our full slate of REH activities for all to enjoy.

And thanks goes to Dennis McHaney for putting this bee in our bonnet!
