Howard Days is 3 Months Away!


Judging by the chill in the air across most of America (and the Northern Hemisphere, for that matter!), it's time to be thinking about Howard Days in the warmer environs of Cross Plains, Texas.

Howard Days 2023 will happen on April 28 & 29, centered around the Robert E. Howard Museum in Cross Plains. Sponsored by Project Pride and The REH Foundation and with support from the members of REHupa, the annual event to honor the life and legacy of Bob Howard is underway with planning and scheduling.

While the "generic" schedule usually remains the same year to year, we're always adding additional bits of fun activity and happenings for attendees to enjoy. All the tours (House, Bus, Walking and Grounds) are in place, as is the Friday Celebration Banquet and Silent Auction; we'll have a new Postal Cancellation Stamp souvenir (and new postcards!), the Cross Plains Library will have original Howard typescripts and Weird Tales magazines on display, the REH Foundation Press will be set up near the Pavilion,' Friday's Hot Dog Lunch and Saturday's Bar-B-Que will be feeding us well, there will be dealers in the yard, poetry readings and surprise happenings - and all the Howard Fellowship under the Pavilion will be just as satisfying as ever.

Please look to the EVENTS header on this page for this schedule. We will be updating it with detailed information about our panels and with other info as it becomes available.

Howard Days 2023 is themed to "100 Years of Weird Tales". We couldn't let this Century Anniversary go by without acknowledging its importance to Robert E. Howard and his writing. Our panels will be slanted to this theme, as well as a special REH Poetry in Weird Tales book. Announcements for these will be upcoming.

The Weird Tales theme gives us additional reason to welcome our Guest of Honor, John Betancourt. As a former Editor of a later incarnation of Weird Tales, author and publisher John Betancourt will be a great guest to make Howard Days even more special.

It's never too early to plan your trip to Howard Days. We have helpful information here that (hopefully) gives you what you need to have a great trip and a memorable Howard Days. 

Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page for updates and info. Hope to see you in Texas!
