Texas Cigar Festival 2020 Postponed Until August


The 2020 edition of the Texas Cigar Festival is the latest event to be postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, as Casa de Montecristo has announced that the event is being postponed until Aug. 8. The retailer cited a directive by the city of Houston advising people to avoid large groups, particularly where people will be in close contact in others.

“As always, we believe it is our role and responsibility to prioritize the well-being of our guests, our associates and our communities,” the company said in an email. “Following the guidance of public health officials and government agencies, including the city of Houston, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, we are taking this precautionary step.”


The event has been rescheduled to Aug. 8, and tickets will automatically transfer over to that new date with no action required. For ticket holders who will be unable to attend on the new date, they are directed to submit a refund request through Eventbrite or to email [email protected] by May 30, 2020.

The Texas Cigar Festival joins Cigarfest 2020 and Big Smoke Meets Whiskyfest as major consumer cigar events that have been forced to reschedule in recent days.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
