Top Cigar Events in the United States

By Gary Manelski

There are a number of annual cigar events that attract thousands of cigar smokers from across the United States. The biggest cigar event of the year is the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Convention and Trade Show. Although this event is not open to the general public, many amateur cigar bloggers have been able to gain access during prior years as members of the media. However, the IPCPR now requires all online media to join the organization as Internet Media Members before admittance will be granted. Contact the IPCPR in advance to see if you qualify.

Here are a few of the major cigar events held every year in the U.S.

  • The Great Smoke. Smoke Inn of South Florida hosts an annual The Great Smoke cigar event during the month of February.

  • Cigar Fest. Cigars International hosts an annual Cigar Fest in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania during the month of May.

  • Cigar Expo. Also known as Cigarnival. Famous Smoke Shop used to host this annual cigar event in Easton, Pennsylvania during the month of June. We're sorry to say that this event will no longer be held.

  • Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival. The Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival is held at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado during the month of August.

  • The Big Smoke. Cigar Aficionado Magazine usually hosts a couple of annual Big Smoke events, the "biggest" of which is the Big Smoke Weekend in Las Vegas, which is typically held during the month of November. In addition, there is now a Big Smoke in Miami, which is held during the month of April.

Other than the major national cigar festivals, cigar makers are always traveling to local tobacco shops across the U.S. to host smaller cigar events. If you do not want to travel out of town to attend a major cigar festival, chances are that a smaller cigar event is coming to a tobacconist near you.
