Howard Days Happens Next Month!

Howard Days will be happening in a little over five weeks! We hope you can join us at the Robert E. Howard Museum in Cross Plains, Texas on June 10th & 11th for The Best Two Days in Howard Fandom! It will be here before we know it!

Here are several announcements and comments for all attendees


It has just been announced that on Friday night at dark, the City of Cross Plains will present an open-air showing of the movie THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD at Treadway Park, which is just west of the Howard Museum. This ties in nicely with the Celebration Banquet as a dinner and a movie date! Come and see this award-winning film about Robert E. Howard and Novalyne Price. Details will follow.


The final details are still being worked out, but REH gaming will take place at HD 2022. The Cross Plains Public Library will host table-top REH games on Friday and Saturday and there will be CONAN role-playing games in the meeting room at the Methodist Church on Friday. We'll get you the specifics as we get closer to the event.


The official Howard Days Postal Cancellation is available only on Friday, June 10th and we've been reminded to inform you that while the Cross Plains Post Office is open from 9 am to 4 pm, they will be closed for lunch from 11:30 to 12:30. Here is the 2022 stamp.


One of the very best events that happens during Howard Days is the Silent Auction of Howard & related items, held in conjunction with the Celebration Banquet on Friday night. 100% of the proceeds from this auction goes to Project Pride and the year-round maintenance of the REH Museum and it can only happen with your generous donations!
So now is the time for you to go through your Howard collection, decide what items: books, paperbacks, magazines, comics, fanzines, artwork - all kinds of Howard and Howard related stuff that we all have - and donate to the Silent Auction.
You can send your donation to REH Silent Auction, c/o Project Pride, POB 534, Cross Plains, TX 76443 or bring your items to the Gift Shop at the House during the day on Friday (or Thursday).
You'll be helping out Project Pride with ensuring the Legacy of Ol' Two-Gun Bob Howard, plus you'll be making room in your collection for the items you win in the Auction! WIN WIN!

As we've mentioned before, the only real cost at Howard Days is the $25.00 fee for a seat at the Celebration Banquet. Every other activity is presented for you AT NO COST! As in: FREE!
Your 25 bucks also helps pays for coffee & donuts Friday morning, the Hot Dog Lunch at noon on Friday, all the water & pop in the giant cooler at the Pavilion and also the Saturday BBQ.
As tickets usually go fast for the Banquet, make sure you get your reservation early by sending your $25 per person to the address listed above or you may Pay Pal to Projpride@yahoo.com. Seating is limited to 150 and is always sold out, so make your reservation right away!

More announcements are forthcoming as we get closer to Howard Days.
