Pre Event Party

The main event takes place at The South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Boulevard, West Palm Beach, FL. The event takes place from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm for Base Ticket holders or 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm for VIP Ticket holders. All tickets include more than 40 premium cigars; a variety of wines, spirits, beer, and food; and a commemorative bag. You’ll receive cigars from Ashton, Oliva, Kristoff, Arturo Fuente, Padron, La Flor Dominicana, Drew Estate, Rocky Patel, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, Foundation Cigar, and more!

After Party

The Spearmint Rhino Gentlemen’s Club West Palm Beach hosts an After Party from 6:00 pm until you run out of dollar bills or get kicked out. The After Party is hosted by Scott Weeks of Recluse Cigars. There are free shuttles from the main event to the Spearmint Rhino, as well as $150 bottles of Absolut vodka and two for one whiskey, bourbon, and scotch. There is no indication that you get a free shuttle back to the event but I certainly hope so! This event is free but I suggest you bring a ton of cash for a lap dance, a bottle of Absolut, and money to tip the entertainment.

Big Delicious Brunch

The Big Delicious Brunch takes place at Smoke Inn Boynton Beach from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The Brunch is hosted by Oliva and Colibri, and includes all you can eat food and bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys. After three days of events, you might need a Bloody Mary. The event features four food stations including omelets, Belgian waffles, prime rib, and more. The event costs $35 and includes a free cigar.


VIP Private Dinner

Tickets are $135 and includes a four-course dinner and a gift pack of cigars from Perdomo Cigars.

Base Ticket

The Base Ticket is $150 and includes more than 40 premium cigars; a variety of wines, spirits, beer, and food; and a commemorative bag. You can also purchase a Base Ticket for yourself and a non-cigar smoking significant other for $220. So, if you have a loser buddy at the office who eats but doesn’t smoke, bring him!

VIP Ticket

The VIP ticket includes the Base Ticket goodies, entrance to the event one hour before the main event, preferred parking, access to a VIP lounge, private beverage area, and full wait staff. You can also purchase a VIP Ticket for yourself and a non-cigar smoking friend or lover for $220. Actually, there is no requirement that your companion be either a friend or a lover, so pick up a homeless person on your way to the event so you can write the whole thing off as a charitable contribution.

Big Delicious Brunch

Tickets for the Big Delicious Brunch cost $45.
