The dates for the 22nd Habanos Festival, or Festival del Habano as it is also known, have been announced: Feb. 24-28, 2020.
The festival celebrates all things Habanos S.A., with visits to Cuban cigar factories, tobacco farms, educational seminars, a trade show, cigar rolling class, the International Habanos World Challenge contest, and several lavish dinners capped off by the final night’s activities which includes an auction of elaborate humidors.
What has not yet been announced is what cigars will be featured during the event. In past years, a brand has been chosen to be the primary focus due to an anniversary or other milestone, while in other years things like the La Casa del Habano franchise have been celebrated with special releases.
Unlike last year, the event will not be held the same week as the Dominican Republic’s cigar festival, Procigar, which takes place Feb. 16-21, 2020.
Registration for the event is expected to open in October via the Habanos S.A. website.
