Drew Estate has announced that it has postponed its upcoming Florida Barn Smoker 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, originally scheduled for May 16 in Clermont, Fla., has been rescheduled to Nov. 14, with the VIP Dinner Experience happening on Nov. 13.
The company says it made the decision “solely as an extreme precaution to ensure the safety of our staff, the staff of the Florida Sun Grown farm and most importantly the 700 Barn Smoker attendees who travel across the country for this extraordinary American Tobacco Experience.”
Tickets for the event will be honored for the new dates, and the company says that any ticket holder who can no longer attend will be eligible to receive a refund, either through Eventbrite or by emailing [email protected]
The company added that it is monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, and will announce updates to its other Barn Smoker Events currently scheduled for Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Kentucky and Louisiana.
The Drew Estate Barn Smoker events are held on tobacco farm in one of five states that supply tobacco to Drew Estate. The event features a tour of the tobacco facilities, exclusive cigars, lunch and a raffle that benefits Cigars for Warriors.
