Cuba’s cigar festival up in smoke - again

Regional 24 Jan, 2022 Follow News

Cuba’s cigar festival is a highlight of the island’s calendar

Cuba’s annual Habano cigar festival has been cancelled for the second year running. Held in Havana for cigar aficionados, attracting thousands domestically and from abroad, it is a vital source of national revenue to promote a commodity Cuba is world renowned for.

The XXIII Habano Festival, scheduled for next month, was cancelled over concerns of the spread of COVID-19. Cigar enthusiasts will have to wait a while longer to learn about new, premium cigars coming to the market for a second consecutive year.

Hundreds of cigar lovers will also be missing out on the gala dinner and live Cuban music, parts of Cuban culture that cannot be fully experienced through a virtual presentation. The factory visits, tours of tobacco plantations and occasions to share with manufacturers, suppliers, artisans and collectors will also be missed opportunities.
