With the continuing uncertainty of the current emergency related to Coronavirus /COVID-19, we have decided to postpone Holmes in the Heartland until summer 2021.  Even though the restrictions seem to be easing, St. Louis city and county have given no timeline for when restrictions will be lifted to allow our events to take place.  

We will announce the 2021 date as soon as it is set.  Thank you so much for being patient with us while we worked out what to do with our convention. As much as we would have loved to host you all this year, everyone’s health and safety takes precedence.  As Arthur Conan Doyle wrote: “It’s all been done before and will be again.”  Thank you and we’ll see you in 2021!
