Roswell Towel Day

Thank you to our special guests, sponsors, local vendors, award-winning cosplayers, poetry readers and all our friends who took a chance for making Roswell Towel Day the most harmless fan-led holiday under the sun.

Don’t Panic! We are seeking sponsors now, to ensure that Roswell Towel Day lands again bigger and better at the Roswell Convention & Civic Center,
Sunday May 25, 2025


Calling all my hoopy froods!
Roswell is THE* PLACE to celebrate Towel Day!

Just what even IS a Towel Day? Check out this fabulous Roswell Daily Record newspaper pre-coverage

That said, Roswell Towel Day is the hoopiest weekend probable, this Saturday May 25, 2024, 10am-6pm at the Roswell Convention & Civic Center! Come for workshops, cosplay and exhibitors, AND you’ll learn why the universe is a much safer place if you carry a towel!

Then we switch over to Roswell Community Little Theatre for 7:30pm “Dinner Theatre At The End Of The Universe!”
          D I  N N E R  is  S O L D   O U T
+ EVEN MORE special events Friday @ Roswell Public Library AND Sunday @ Roswell UFO Museum!

*NOTE: Roswell is not the ONLY place to celebrate this internationally-observed sci-fi holiday: See to learn much more about our beloved, departed author Douglas Adams, his multi-million selling “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” book series (available in over 30 languages), the radio drama, television show, movie, AND ESPECIALLY the most harmless fandom-led holiday in the universe, aka Douglas Adams’ birthday (don’t look now, but here’s a 55-minute documentary.)

Your trip to Roswell also offers indoor laser tag, spacewalk, virtual reality experiences, and so much more! Don’t Panic! There’s Lots To Do in Roswell!

Can’t Make It? Just GET THE T-SHIRT and wear it anywhere hoopiness is encouraged. We won’t tell anyone what a lame strag you really are.

Roswell Towel Day Lands Saturday, May 25, 2024

Our Roswell Convention Center is big. “You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is.” A wedding is also happening there Saturday. Advance ticket purchases now requested to help us estimate attendance and determine whether to upgrade to a larger hall in time – in case this thing catches on.

Disclaimer: “The fabulously beautiful planet Roswell is now so worried about the cumulative erosion by ten billion visiting tourists a year that any net imbalance between the amount you eat and the amount you excrete while on the planet is surgically removed from your body weight when you leave: so every time you go to the lavatory there it is vitally important to get a receipt.”

Like all that? Get caught up! Buy the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” from Amazon: “In one complete volume, here are the five classic novels from Douglas Adams’s beloved Hitchhiker series.”

Email for notifications! But don’t wait on those hotel reservations; Roswell hotels often sell out early! Our host hotel is Clarion Inn & Suites 2000 N Main St, Roswell, NM 88201 (aka “The Sally Port” as locals still say – $79 night; call (855) 488-0481)).
