There’s a growing list of cigar-related events that have gone from postponed to outright cancelled as COVID-19 continues to evolve and threaten lives across the globe. The latest events to cancel due to the pandemic now include Texas Cigar Festival and Smokin’ in the Carolinas, two events that were first postponed until later in 2020 and now will not happen at all.
Here’s what the event organizers had to say about this latest development:
“Our team has been closely monitoring guidance of public health officials, and government agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization. After careful and thoughtful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s 2020 Texas Cigar Festival and Smokin’ In The Carolina’s Events.
“While the team has been hard at work preparing amazing festivals for you, we put the health and safety of our guests, associates, and community first. Given the information and guidance provided surrounding large gatherings we have had to make this difficult decision to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests.
“Our team will be working even harder to make next year’s events bigger and better. We thank you for being a loyal customer, we are privileged to serve you and look forward to hosting you at next year’s Texas Cigar Festival and Smokin’ In The Carolina’s Events.”
