The Havano Cigar Festival


Cigar lovers from over 60 nations of the world will meet in Cuba from February 27 to March 2 for the 14th International Habano Cigar festival, which will be dedicated to the famous brands Cohiba, and Romeo and Julet in the context of the 520th Anniversary of the discovery in Cuba of tobacco leaves.
As it is usual in these festivals, participants will enjoy tasting exclusive and new cigar shapes that Habano S.A. Company will take to the market in 2012. Other activities include visits to tobacco leaf plantations, in the famous region of Vuelta Abajo, western Pinar del Rio province; seminars, tasting sessions and the Habano Sommelier contest, as well as a cigar hand-rolling exhibit.
A new feature of the festival this year is the Habanos Images International Contest for audiovisuals related to the tobacco culture and cigar making. The goal of the contest is promoting knowledge about the work of tobacco growers, cigar makers and other workers involved in the making of Habano cigars.
The Opening ceremony, dedicated to the Cohiba brand will include an exclusive music concert at the Havana-based Karl Marx Theater by singer Augusto Enriquez, who will be joined by Phil Manzanera and Jack Bruce.
The ceremony will be followed by a welcoming cocktail at the Cristino Naranjo beach club right by the theater.
The commemoration of the 520 anniversary of the discovery of tobacco leaves in Cuba by the European will take place on February 29 during a supper at the Fine Arts Museum, also in Havana.
The closing ceremony will be held March 2 during a Gala Supper dedicated to the Romeo and Juliet brand, while the auction of humidors to contribute to the Cuban public health system will put an end to the Festival.
