This area doesn’t see a lot of big multi-vendor cigar events, so smokers come out in droves for this exceptional event. The 2-day festival was hosted by Legends of Fire Cigar Lounge at the Northern Quest Resort & Casino.
Blake Crossley, who’s taken the lead in putting this together, has done an incredible job of getting cigar stars from all over to make the trek to Spokane. Rocky and Nish Patel, Michael Giannini, Bill Paley, and Matt Booth (who’s originally from Spokane) were among the cigar stars representing 19 brands in the 2014 installment. Former NBA star and known cigar lover John Salley emceed the VIP dinner.
