CIGARfest 2020 has been canceled because of national and local restrictions due to COVID-19. The event by Cigars International was first moved from its original May dates to October 16-17.
However, current Pennsylvania state policies make the 2020 event no longer viable.
“After much deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel CIGARfest this year,” Sarah Santos, president of Cigars International said in a statement. “We look forward to resuming the event next year, better than ever.”
The annual event began in 2003 and over the years has raised money for various charities, including Cigars for Warriors, which provides cigars to actively-deployed military personnel and veterans.
Ticket holders for CIGARfest 2020 have been contacted by Cigars International’s customer service team, and have been offered a refund or the option of transferring their tickets to CIGARfest 2021.
