Cigar Event: CIGARfest 2016

Cigars International recently released the dates for CIGARFest 2016. The mega-herf is April 27, 2016 through May 1, 2016 and most events take place at Split Rock Resort in the Poconos, PA. This is a spectacular event that Smokey Butts and I have attended three times in the past. You’ll have an opportunity to collect tons of cigars, speak to manufacturers, attend manufacturer-sponsored events, play golf, drink a few beers, etc.

Here’s what the CIGARFest website has to say about the event:

“This fun-filled event is for CIGAR LOVERS ONLY

Why CIGARfest?

You, standing among well over 50 of the world’s biggest cigar-makers and brand owners.
You, burning tasty, premium handmades alongside thousands of your fellow cigar lunatics.
You, with live music, man-sized portions of food, beer samples, spirit samples, models, heaven.
You, within arm’s reach of incredible raffle prizes worth tens of thousands of dollars.
You, going all-in for 5 straight days of cigar-smothered, libation-infused insanity.
You, taking home roughly a hundred premium cigars, plus all your freebies, all for the ticket price.
You, confirming within your core that CIGARfest puts all other cigar events and ‘festivals’ to shame within mere minutes of joining the pandemonium.
You, texting your wife about next year’s event, whilst thinking of ways to never go home again.

Why not CIGARfest?

Seriously. It’s the cigar world’s Tour de Force. If this thought even enters your dome, you’re not ready for The Greatest Show on Herf.

What’s the rub?

No bullshit. No gimmicks. CIGARfest is the event to end all other cigar events. Every year, tickets sell out in two minutes or less. When I say act quickly, I’m not trying to sell you a ticket; I’m trying to ensure you’re a part of the madness.”

To learn more about this event, including the agenda and ticket packages, go here. A warning that in the past, it has been difficult to get tickets so make sure you purchase your tickets on the day they go on sale. This event is well worth the money as you’ll walk away with upwards of 100 premium cigars and a number of accessories.

Smokey Butts and I will be there. If you plan to attend, please let us know so we can meet. We also plan to blog at the event for those who cannot attend. We’ll see you there!



c.gar loves all things cigar-related. He typically falls in love with cigars that are discontinued shortly thereafter. His first cigar was a Swisher Sweet with a wood tip. Sadly, these are still in production.

    Fifth year in a row for me and several buddies for cigarfest. Running out of wall space for the great event posters ever ticket holder receives. You cannot beat this experience.

    Smokey Butts and I are attending as well. We are really looking forward to it. We have not been to CIGARFest in a few years and are curious what changes Cigars International has made.
