The Procigar Festival is a truly unique and memorable experience unmatched in the cigar industry that beautifully combines educational opportunities, entertainment, leisure activities, loads of premium cigar smoking and a lifetime of memories. One of the Festival’s most compelling attractions is that it allows guests to have one-on-one dialogues with the industry’s biggest cigar makers all the while smoking their cigars and fraternizing with an international community of like-minded enthusiasts in an unprecedented way – cigar manufacturers, retailers and consumers.

The Procigar Festival takes place in the Dominican Republic, it starts in the east coast, were our guests will be able relax at the beach under the tropical sunshine, compete in fun beach activities, practice snorkelling and take horse rides by the ocean. Our participants will also have the opportunity to visit Tabacalera de García in La Romana.
