Registration for the Habanos Festival is now open. The festival will have its 22nd Edition in Havana, Cuba, from 24th to 28th February 2020. And you can register for the festival now. 

This year, the Habanos Festival will dedicate the opening night to the Bolivar brand. But there are also parties planned for the 30th anniversary of the La Casa del Habano franchise. And for the 85th anniversary of the legendary Montecristo brand. The gala-night will feature Romeo y Julieta, one of the most admired brands within the Habanos portfolio. Romeo y Julieta is celebrating its 175th Anniversary.

Habanos novelties and tours

The festival offers all in attendance the opportunity to learn the new Habanos novelties for 2020 first hand. And there are tours to tobacco fields and factories. The festival also offers international seminars, lectures, and practical sessions. There are tastings with wines, and of course the annual Habanos Sommelier competition.

On the closing night, the annual humidor auction for charity will take place. Some rare and unique humidors, handcrafted by skilled Cuban artists, will be up for auction. And the proceeds for the 2020 auction will be donated to the Cuban Public Health System. An internationally recognized band will close the night, but the name of the band has not been disclosed yet.
