Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest Postponed Until October

With the Coronavirus outbreak affecting people all over the United States, and President Trump declaring a national emergency, we are postponing Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest, which was scheduled to take place April 3–4. 

The event has been rescheduled for Saturday October 31, and it will be held at the same venue, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. There will be cigar seminars in the morning and a grand tasting of cigars, whiskies and other spirits that evening. 

People who have already purchased tickets for the original event will receive an email with information about ticket options and refunds soon. 

We will also bring you more information about the new date, exhibitors, and other details very soon. Rest assured the event will have an incredible lineup of fine, handmade cigars and a superb array of incredible whiskies and high-end spirits to enjoy while you puff. 

We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time, and urge you all to take precautions to stay safe as all of us deal with this unusual situation. 

If you have questions about the event, contact events@mshanken.com or visit thebigsmokes.com for more information.
