Join us for Hawai‘i‘s first ever Endless Summer Cigar Festival. On February 8-10, 2013, some of the top names in the world of cigar manufacturing will be visiting the Islands to help us celebrate the history and tradition of premium cigars in the Aloha State.

Since the early 1800s tobacco farming has had roots in Hawai‘i, and for the first time in nearly two hundred years we will pay tribute to Hawai‘i’s past, present and future cigar industry. On display at the event, and from the archives at Bishop Museum, Kaua‘i Museum, and the Kona Historical Society will be photographs and written excerpts from Hawai‘i’s tobacco and cigar history.

While we take a trip back in time to explore our rich history, guests will enjoy live Hawaiian entertainment, dinner, spirits, and some of the finest cigars known to man. Special guests include Jose Pepin Garcia, his wife Maria, his son Jaime Garcia and his wife Dianelis Bermudez, and daughter Janny Garcia, along with the owners of Ashton Cigar Robert Levin and his wife Suzanne, as well as Pete Johnson, owner of Tatuaje cigars, and Rocky Patel of Rocky Patel Premium Cigars.  This special night will be filled with renown cigar brands like Ashton, My Father, Island Prince, Tatuaje, Partagas, Hawaiian Vintage, La Duena, La Aroma De Cuba, Makaleha, CAO, Macanudo, San Cristobal, Don Pepin, Rocky Patel, and many others.

Retailers like Tobaccos of Hawaii, R.

Torcedors from the Kauai Cigar Company will be hand making their limited edition Made In Hawaii, Grown in Hawaii cigars throughout the night, and local spirit companies will be pairing drinks and smokes. A plentitude of rare cigar treasures will also be sold in a silent auction and benefit those in the military who have been injured defending our Nation.
