2022 NCS Reuben Weekend Set for September

The National Cartoonists Society has announced the setting for the 2022 Reubens’ Weekend.

Put it in your calendars, folks, because we’re going to try this once more with feeling– our 76th Annual Reuben Awards will take place in Kansas City, MO on Thursday 15th & Friday 16th September* 2022.

We miss you all and can’t wait to get together to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company. We will be sharing more information on our exciting line-up and accommodation information for our first in-person Reubens in 2 years in the coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on your inbox and NCS social media accounts.

Kansas City was the setting for the 2020 Reuben celebration before The Covid rudely interrupted.
Also note that it is not actually a weekend but a Thursday and Friday.

As for why not the traditional May date:

* Why September and not May? Attempting to lock in a time and date that wasn’t already booked out by every conference, wedding, corporate retreat and other in-person events that had been postponed from 2020 & 2021 was incredibly challenging this year. Even now, we are uncomfortably close to SPX, NYCC and CXC, but it could not be helped.


And since they mentioned the Cartoons Crossroads Columbus festivities…
have we noted the 2022 CXC convention?

Details forthcoming on both gatherings.
