Queen City Cigar Fest Announced for May

Queen City Cigar Fest

The second annual Queen City Cigar Fest in Charlotte, North Carolina will take place May 18-22, with lounge-hopping and multiple events across the city.

The fest kicks off with a VIP signature gathering at the Cigar Loft in downtown Concord, followed by a Welcome to Charlotte event at Tailored Smoke Cigar Lounge, as happenings take place through the five days and ending with the daytime Sticks & Sundresses event. 

The Queen City Cigar Fest is hosted by cigar podcaster, event host, model, and social media influencer, Elegant Plume, a.k.a. Drida McGlown. She is producing the event in partnership with Sarah Martin, CEO of Experience Epic Events.

McGlown and Martin met at a cigar festival in South Florida and bonded over the love of cigars and the cigar culture. Their tie helped them together to re-envision cigar festivals, which has resulted in Queen City Cigar Fest. 

The debut Queen City Cigar Fest last year drew 800 people, and they expect over 1,000 attendees this year.

All-Access VIP Packages are on sale now for $225 which includes access to all events during the fest as well as early admission cocktail hour, and skip-the-line access, complimentary lounge membership fees, cigars and cigar swag bag, and commemorative t-shirt.  Saturday-only passes are $185 and socialite tickets are $50. 

North Carolina requires face coverings when not smoking or drinking.
