Lake Worth, FL - The Great Smoke
"For the 11th edition of our growing, annual cigar festival, we’ve expanded on the fan-favorite platform that’s made The Great Smoke the most exciting single day in the world of premium cigars to become a full-fledged weekend getaway!
That’s right, for the die-hard enthusiast, The Great Smoke is now a 3-day, smoke-filled extravaganza! Kick off the festivities on Friday night with Quesada Cigars and brand-runner Terence Reilly, as they’ll be hosting our pre-event dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse (complete with special, event-exclusive commemorative cigars included in the price). The Great Smoke event itself will be followed with a special after-party event at Spearmint Rhino, hosted by cigar personality Erik Espinosa and Espinosa Premium Cigars. And if that ain’t enough, cap the weekend off with a much-needed Sunday brunch, hosted by Recluse Cigars—featuring all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-eat-and-drink Bloody Marys and Mimosas.
The Great Smoke event itself is still the most star-studded collection of cigar personalities in the country! If the event add-ons aren’t your style, grab a single-day ticket and cut to the chase—i.e. load up on premium stogies like you’re trick or treating on Halloween! We’ve secured 45 of the industry’s most sought-after brands and cigar celebrities, all in attendance for a cigar HERF like you’ve never seen! Live music, food, drink vendors from craft breweries and distilleries, and much more… make for a truly unforgettable smoking experience. And of course, as with year’s past, a portion of proceeds will be donated to one of our favorite charitable organizations, The Kid’s Cancer Foundation.
We’ll see you there!"
