ProCigar Festival 2013 Registration is Open
Posted: October 2, 2012
Devotees of Dominican cigars, rum and golf in exotic locales take note: Registration for the annual ProCigar Festival has begun.
Now in its sixth year, the 2013 ProCigar Festival will take place in the Dominican Republic on February 17 through 22. Billed as the ultimate experience for lovers of Dominican cigars, the festival offers attendees numerous cigar-related activities, including tours of some of the world’s best cigar factories, hikes through tobacco fields and the chance to eat, drink and smoke with some of the Dominican cigar industry’s most recognizable cigarmakers.
Festival-goers can stay at Casa de Campo, the island’s marquee vacation resort, and have the chance to tee it up at the hotel’s legendary Teeth of the Dog golf course. The docket also includes a Brugal rum factory tour, a catamaran cruise (plus snorkeling), and a charity poker tournament.
ProCigar was formed in 1992 and consists of eight companies in the Dominican Republic that make cigars, and all of the member companies take part in the festival. There is General Cigar Dominicana, the factory that produces such cigars as Macanudo, La Gloria Cubana and Partagas; Tabacalera de Garcia Ltd., the makers of Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta and H. Upmann; Tabadom Holding Inc., the company that produces Davidoff and Avo cigars; Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia., maker of Fuente cigars; Manufactura de Tabacos S.A. (MATASA), which makes the Quesada and Fonseca brands; La Aurora S.A., maker of Guillermo León and Aurora cigars; Tabaquisa S.A., where Juan Clemente cigars are made and Corporacion Cigar Export, the maker of Augusto Reyes and other cigars.
