I’ll be honest, this one is new to me but CATS Fest 5 has been around for, you guessed it, five years! CATS Fest 5 is scheduled for May 25-29, 2017 near San Antonio, TX. All proceeds from the event go to Cigars for Warriors. For those who don’t know about Cigars for Warriors, they are a nonprofit that collects premium cigars and sends them to troops overseas. They are a great organization dedicated to giving our troops a break from the action. The details for CATS Fest 5 are a little thin but here are the details available as of the date of this post. I’ll add more information as it is available.
Location: Texas Rodeo Company: The , 401 Obst Road, Bulverde, TX. Bulverde is about 30 miles north of San Antonio, TX.
Information from the CATS Fest 5 Website:
“CATS Festival is the greatest gathering of premium cigar lovers from all over the globe! CATS Festival focuses primarily on two major elements. The first is giving back to cigar consumers, second and most importantly is supporting the US fighting men and women serving our country via Operation: Cigars for Warriors. We converge on San Antonio, TX like a swarm of locusts to celebrate our love of fine premium cigars, and to share what it means to be a brother or sister of the leaf. This weekend-long celebration of all things smoky brings out the best sponsors and the greatest BOTLs and SOTLs in the world, making this one-of-a-kind family gathering the can’t-miss destination cigar event of the year. Join us and enjoy the monstrous haul of smokes from the best brands around, live music, incredible food, a variety of entertainment and parties before and after, and much much more! We are very proud of organizing our festival in the CATS tradition of doing things our own way in a big way.”
“This year’s CATS Festival is being held at The Tejas Rodeo Company – a seriously awesome venue that is run by some seriously awesome people! We are so excited to have you all here and show off our wonderful digs. In the meantime, we’d like to tell you a little bit about it. The Tejas Rodeo Company isa one-stop shop, providing all the Texas-sized entertainment you can handle! Things get started with the Steakhouse & Saloon. This is an old-school joint, and as you might guess, steak is the dish of choice here, and they do it incredibly well. If you’re not in the mood for steak they do have some other options, and they also offer a couple salads in case you need to convince your wife to come along with you. The Saloon features a terrific environment and a huge selection of all varieties of spirits. That is just the beginning! Head out back and you’ll find a full-sized Rodeo arena! Every Saturday night from March through November they pack this place in for a whole lotta ropin’ and ridin’. You don’t have to just watch either, for a small fee you can join in the fun and compete for prizes! There are even many events for children to ensure there is fun for the whole family. After the rodeo winds down, the party keeps on going with their Live Music Under The Stars series. Texas Country, traditional country, and dance swing music from the best local and national acts make Saturday nights a can’t miss. There are plenty of concerts on Fridays as well, and on other nights when the scheduling dictates.”
