Today Drew Estate announced the cancellation of 2021 in-person events including the 2021 Barn Smoker season due to increasing health and safety concerns resulting from the rise of the COVID-19 Delta Variant as it spreads throughout the country at very rapid rates.
We have made this painful decision after significant consideration to ensure the safety of our team members, our vendors, and, of course, the tens of thousands of consumers who attend our events nationwide. All Barn Smoker attendees (ticket holders) will receive a full refund of their ticket price within 3-5 business days of this announcement and will have the first opportunity to purchase Barn Smoker tickets next season.
Drew Estate’s President and Founder Jonathan Drew personally adds, “Barn Smoker season has always been one of the foundational cornerstones behind our philosophy of fellowship. This contribution to modern day Cigar Culture is something that Drew Estate is incredibly proud of … and it simply breaks our hearts to have to push the Barn Smoker season back to 2022. We send our deepest gratitude and regrets to the farmers, suppliers, food service providers, trade partners, retailers, media family, and the core Barn Smoker team who both work for Drew Estate as well as travel with us to spread the DE culture and love. Above all, much love to our faithful consumers and fans who inspire us to reach new heights and live our dreams every day. See you soon.”
