Faced with the current health concerns impacting our country and the recently announced travel restrictions due to COVID-19 it is with regret and an abundance of caution that we announce that Cigars International has decided to reschedule CIGARfest 2020.

The decision follows Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s administration strongly encouraging the suspension of large gatherings, events, and conferences of 250 individuals or more.

We are all aware of the current health concerns impacting our country and the world – and while this decision comes at a time of uncertainty, we do not want to risk the health and safety of CI Nation, our cigar community partners, and our staff.

Instead of being held on May 1st and 2nd 2020, we are rescheduling the event for October 16th and 17th 2020. The venue remains the same: Split Rock Resort, Poconos PA.

We intend to keep CIGARfest 2020 programming intact and exactly as advertised. Should circumstances require changes, these will be communicated to you in a timely manner.

All purchased tickets for the May dates will be honored for the rescheduled October dates. If you are unable to attend in October, you will be able to request a refund at any time.

We would like to thank our customers and cigar community partners for their continued support and look forward to seeing you in October.

If you have any questions please email us at [email protected] or call 877-244-2790 (toll free hours of operation 9am to 7pm).

 

2020 Ticket Process

CIGARfest 2020 will feature plenty of new items and features that are sure to keep even the most grizzled Cfest vet grinning from ear to ear. New featured cigar manufacturers, new events, new swag, new prizes to win, new releases that you’ll get to try first. But the most important new feature of all: there is a new way to buy tickets for CIGARfest 2020.

Let me repeat that for those who glossed over it.
There is a new process to buy tickets for CIGARfest 2020.

> NEW Way to Buy Tickets for CIGARfest 2020

Tickets for CIGARfest 2020 will be sold through Eventbrite. Before we get into the nitty gritty, here’s an overview of the process.

  1. Register for an account on Eventbrite ASAP. This is 100% free to do. Rest assured, you won’t be bombarded with lots of junk mail in your inbox.
  2. Pre-load your contact information into the Eventbrite system. This is not mandatory, but highly recommended. You will not be able to save your payment information until you purchase tickets through Eventbrite.
  3. On February 1st, select your preferred day and entry time from the links below. Look for tickets to become available at 2pm EST.
  4. Purchase your tickets. Tickets are limited to 4 (four) per person. This is also where you’ll purchase any shirts, hats, and upgrade event tickets you’re interested in.
  5. Your tickets will be digitally delivered to your registered email address within 24 hours of your purchase.
  6. Save these to your Apple Wallet, to your phone, screenshot them, print them out and staple them to your forehead… do whatever you need to do to avoid losing, deleting, or forgetting your tickets because tickets are 100% required at the door for entry.
  7. Stare longingly at your calendar for a few months in anticipation.
  8. Show up to Split Rock, PA and indulge in absolute cigar nirvana.

> More Ticket Info

Here’s a little 411 on some of the new details below.

  • Where to Buy Tickets: You can buy your tickets on February 1st at 2pm EST through Eventbrite. Tickets will also be available at both Pennsylvania Cigars International Super-Store locations (in Bethlehem PA, and Hamburg, PA) on the morning of February 1st. But get there early! Tickets are limited, and there are always lines around the store by the time we open.
  • How to Get Shirts, Hats, or Upgrade Event Tickets: These are also available through Eventbrite. Easy peasy.
  • Why Should I Create an Eventbrite Account: Signing up for an Eventbrite account beforehand will not guarantee you get a ticket, but it’ll make it a helluva lot easier. You’ll be required to create an account before checking out – taking care of this before the day tickets go on sale will save you a step and expedite the process.
  • Returns/Transfers: Stuff happens. We get that. If you need to transfer your tickets to your buddy, or you need to cancel your trip for extenuating circumstances, you can do this through Eventbrite. Returns and transfers will be open until September 14th, 2020 at 11:59pm EST. Once that time comes, no further refunds or transfers will be permitted.
  • Tickets at the Door: You need your tickets at the door. For real. No exceptions. They can be digital or printed, but if we can’t scan them, we can’t let you in. So, make sure you have your phone and make sure it is charged.
