2011 ProCigar Festival

2011 ProCigar Festival

It is that time once again for the Annual ProCigar Festival in Dominican Republic.  Cigar enthusiasts from around the world gather in Cigar Country once a year for a celebration of this wonderful country and the cigars that are produced there.

This is the Fourth annual festival, and we are very proud to once again host a group to attend.  The "Davidoff New York" group is special.  It consists of friends and customers from ALL over, some who have been attending the festival since its inception, and others for the first time.  This year there will be some special guests staying with us as well.

We will stay as a group at "Camp David", a wonderful hotel on the northern mountain range just outside the city of Santiago, with beautiful views of Santiago and the entire Cibao Valley.  http://www.campdavidranch.com/

The Festival Begins in La Romana On February 6, 2011.  This portion of the festival will be organized for you and is quite an experience, however it is not part of the Davidoff NY Group.

The "Davidoff NY" Group will meet in Santiago on Tuesday, February 8, 2011.  Transportation will be provided to "Camp David" from Santiago Airport where we will spend the day relaxing and enjoying the view as our guests arrive throughout the day.  On Tuesday Evening there will be an exclusive welcome reception just for the Davidoff group, with cigars, great food, drinks and special guests.

Wednesday through Friday will consist of daily activities including tours of factories, fields and other Dominican "must see's".  The evenings will be amazing fiestas concluding with a gala dinner and auction on Friday night.  Transportation and meals are provided throughout.  We will depart Santiago on February 12, 2010.
