I've never been to a Cigarfest, or even a real B&M for that matter living in an area that has very limited cigar ability, but I'm really considering saving my pennies to go to Cigarfest 2010!

What would I need to know about going to one?

The email and website don't list a location yet. I would assume it will be held in PA perhaps on location at CI.

It should be held where they've been holding it for the past few yrs at the Split Rock resort in Lake Harmony PA. I guess we'll get more details about the event soon.

I've attended the past 3 yrs and always have a great time. Tickets sell out within a couple hrs. I was lucky to get mine last yr.

Thats me in the striped shirt with some friends, Don Pepin and his son Jaimie in 07.

I am seriously considering making this a long weekend getaway! For those that have gone, do the prices include a room at the resort? If not, how much does that run?

I went last year and spent $800.00 for airfare, room, rental car etc. The rooms were big and clean. I'm going back this year it was a great time, met a bunch of great people and smoked cigars like there was no tomorrow!

Something strange is going on this year. We are less than 2 weeks away from the tickets going on sale and not one detail has come out yet about Location, Ticket Pricing, Events, What Cigar Companies will be there Etc. This stuff was always laid out for us a few weeks before.

There was a rumor about the event being held outside of PA, so I got in touch with Split Rock Resort via Twitter and confirmed that Cigars International is booked there in May. With that said, location is Split Rock Resort in the Poconos like usual. I believe the event is always held on the first weekend in May. That can probably be confirmed by calling the super-store.

Haven't heard anything on ticket pricing and what-not.

I hope so - Split Rock is 30 minutes away for me.

Sorry in advance for any slips in etiquette, I'm a newbie here.

I became acquainted with CI in June of this year, so I just missed CigarFest 2010. Since then, I've been looking forward to the opportunity to participate in 2011. I'm learning that it's difficult to find much info on this event other than the 2010 reviews that people have posted in various forums.

One thing that's becoming apparent to me is that tix for the event are gone in a matter of "minutes". I assume that since I'm a CI customer, I should at least be notified when the 2011 event is announced, but I have no idea how far in advance of actual ticket sales that usually is. Anyone know how much notice is actually given?

Can anyone share the details on the difference between regular and VIP tix, including the 2010 price?

Any tips on improving my odds of getting tix?

Any info will be appreciated. Thanks in advance CMR

I'm hoping that announcement for CigarFest 2011 will come out this month. Last year was my first one and it was a blast. I believe that 2011 will be around the last weekend in April. Tickets should go on sale in Feb (if it is like last year). Best tips:
1. Get up early with your computer ready to go. Last year the site locked up so here is tip number 2....

2. Have both your cell phone and line at the ready.....and keep redialing. I took me 45 min to get through and get my VIP ticket ($125).

3. Be persistent and patient.....you'll need both.

If you are successful in getting a ticket it will be sent to you about a month before the event. It will also be announced when rooms will be available for reservation at Split Rock.....you have to have a ticket to reserve a room at the resort. There are a couple of hotels about 15 min away from the resort as well.

I'll be trying to get mine as well........hope this helps. Good luck!
