Tickets for the 2019 Festival del Habano are now on sale.

Today, Habanos S.A. announced that registration for the annual Cuban cigar festival is now open. In doing so, the company also announced which brands will be of focus: Hoyo de Monterrey, San Cristóbal de la Habana and Trinidad.

The event is largely the same as in years past, though it will take place one week earlier—Feb. 18-22—meaning it is the same week as the Dominican Republic’s cigar festival, Procigar.

Pricing for the full week of activities remains at 2,075 CUC, or roughly $2,385 given the conversation rate.

The specific breakdown of costs is:

  • Welcome Evening (350 CUC)
  • Visit to Plantations (85 CUC)
  • International Seminar (400 CUC)
  • Visit to Habanos Factories (40 CUC)
  • Hoyo de Monterrey Evening (500 CUC)
  • Gala Evening (700 CUC)

As with last year, distributors will be able to purchase tickets first. That period opened today and concludes Dec. 17. Habanos S.A. has not announced when individual registration will go on sale.
