Cigar Heritage Festival
December 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
In 2015 Cigar City Magazine brought back the Cigar Heritage Festival with a bang! With crowds of close to 10,000 people from around the world attending, the Cigar Heritage Festival is considered to be the largest of its kind in the world; fitting since Tampa was once known as the Cigar Capital of the World and Ybor City is where it all started.
With the leading cigar industry families in attendance like Arturo Fuente Cigar Company, J.C. Newman Cigar Company, and others, they have helped drive in cigar aficionados, Ybor supporters, local families, history enthusiasts, and out-of-town visitors from all around the world! The Cigar Heritage Festival has the “BEST” cigars from around the world, and cigar aficionados can find the most famous and the rarest cigars along with some Tampa Hand Made “Boutique” cigars that they may have never experienced!
A free family-friendly event, but please remember there will be cigar smoking throughout the park. Dogs are welcome in the park as long as on a tight leash at all times. Please do not allow your dog to urinate on the street, tents or inside the brick/cemented park area. Please use the back of the parks tree and dirt area along 8th Avenue. Don’t forget to bring your doggie poop bags!
