Due to state restrictions regarding COVID19 the 2020 Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival has been cancelled. There will be a. virtual version of the festival hosted by the Cigar Dojo on August 29th. Smoker Friendly who puts on the event released the following statement today:
We are sad to announce that the 2020 Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival scheduled for August 29th at the Omni Interlocken in Broomfield, Colorado is cancelled due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All patrons that have already purchased a ticket for the RMCF will be issued a complete refund. A separate email will be sent to ticketholders regarding the refund process.
In lieu of the traditional festival we have all come to love, we will be offering a “Virtual Festival Cigar Package” that will include 35 great cigars and an RMCF cutter. Additionally, there will be deals offered on select cigars through Smoker Friendly stores and paylesscigarsandpipes.com. In partnership with Cigar Dojo, there will also be a “virtual show” on August 29, 2020 featuring many of the industry personalities speaking about their companies and cigars. The cost of the package is $120 which includes shipping direct to customers within the US. Full details are available on rmcigarfestival.com and to purchase tickets use the “Get Your Tickets” link that will direct you to Eventbrite.
Tickets for the Virtual Festival Cigar Package will be available first come, first served to attendees that already purchased a ticket to the 2020 RMCF with any remaining tickets going on sale to the public on June 29th. While we are disappointed we will not be able to hold the traditional RMCF this year, it became very apparent gatherings like the RMCF are not likely to resume in 2020, and more importantly we felt the safety and health of our consumers, vendor partners, and team members necessitated this change.
We are very appreciative for the support of the RMCF from our customers and the cigar industry through the years, and we are very excited to be back better than ever in 2021!
