Drew Estate announced yesterday that it will be officially cancelling its 2020 Barn Smoker events as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. In lieu of the event, Drew Estate will be immediately refunding all ticketholders and sending the complete 2020 Barn Smoker Swag Set to each individual free of charge and shipping. This and more are apart of their “Barn Smoker Goodwill Act of 2020.”
 
The Barn Smoker events were originally scheduled to take place in Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisiana and Florida throughout the summer and into the fall, but were indefinitely postponed on March 18 due to Covid-19. In order to bring cigar smokers together from all over the country as Barn Smokers do, Drew Estate will be hosting separate virtual smoking events for each state. The virtual celebrations will take place on Facebook Live as two-hour “Virtual Barn Smoker Herfs” and will include the Drew Estate ambassadors and farmer partners.
 
The dates for each event are as follows with exact times to come:
  • Pennsylvania: July 25
  • Connecticut: August 8
  • Kentucky: September 26
  • Louisiana: October 4
  • Florida: November 14
Jonathan Drew, founder and president of Drew Estate, commented, “It is with great sadness that we’ve come to this decision. Barn Smoker, alongside Cigar Safari, are the experiential programs that we are most deeply connected to here at Drew Estate."
 
Ticketholders should submit their address for complementary care packages here. Note: the package does not include cigars and will be shipped out by August 1. Additionally, Drew Estate will be donating $10,000 per Barn Smoker, for a total of $50,000, to Cigars for Warriors.
