Nicaraguan Cigar Festival Canceled For 2022

For the second year in a row, the Nicaraguan cigar festival has been canceled due to pandemic precautions. Officially known as Puro Sabor, the festival is a celebration of Nicaraguan cigar culture that includes field trips to tobacco farms, tours of cigar factories and face time with the biggest producers of Nicaragua’s cigars. 

“We certainly miss the direct contact with the premium Nicaraguan tobacco lovers who used to visit us every year, but we decided that the health of our collaborators and visitors is more important,” said Claudio Sgroi, president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Tobacco. 

Traditionally, the festival starts in the capital city of Managua and continues to Estelí, the center of Nicaragua’s tobacco-growing and cigarmaking industry.
