The Poconos has long been renowned for its lush forest, sparkling lakes and incredible views that inspire the outdoor enthusiast to come and discover an endless network of trails. Beautiful and serene, the Poconos is often looked to as a travel destination that provides some much need rest and relaxation. However, every May this area of Pennsylvania takes on an entirely new look and feel with the arrival of CIGARfest. Bringing in cigar lovers by the thousands, this festival kicks up the energy and keeps it all at high volume for five days of fun!

The CIGARfest Expo

CIGARfest is hosted by Cigars International and sees more than 6,000 guests show up annually to celebrate the art and flavor of global cigars. Many come for the samples and opportunity to browse what’s new, but the majority come for the entertainment, excitement and opportunity to meet with some of the biggest names in the industry. The Poconos provides the beautiful backdrop while Split Rock Resort at Lake Harmony provides the expo space generally hosted through the weekend days of the event. Participants are treated to much more than information during CIGARfest. Once a ticket is purchased, guests are privy to raffle tickets, live music, wine and beer samples as well as an impressive line up of events that happen outside of the main expo arena. On average, participants leave the expo with more than 50 premium hand-crafted cigars in their swag bag to take home and enjoy at their leisure.

Five Days of Events

Running Wednesday through Sunday, CIGARfest 2020 is sponsored by several of the most influential brand names in the cigar world including Oliva, Drew Estate, General Cigar Company, Inc. and Xikar Quality Importers. While the exposition is the highlight of the event, sponsors host events of their own that create dual intrigue for guests to this lively annual gathering. Oliva provides an opportunity for cigar enthusiasts who are also good on the green to come and participate in a golf tournament at the Split Rock Country Club. Once guests have conquered the links, each of the nearby Cigars International stores in surrounding towns hosts an array of events including spontaneous sales and samplings. The Keystone Ballroom lets guests end the night in delicious style by hosting CIGARfest dinners that allow participants to wine, dine, mix and mingle after a day of exploring.
