HOUSTON, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the sixth year in a row, Serious Cigars, a Houston-based national provider of premium cigar blends and accessories, will host the Texas Cigar Festival at their location on Cypress Creek Parkway on Saturday, April 25th. This annual event has sold out each year and this year is no different. Approximately 750 tickets were sold on the company's website in a matter of 90 seconds.

Serious Cigars has provided tobacco enthusiasts from around the world with top blends from well-known manufacturers. With this festival, they are giving attendees an opportunity to meet with some of their favorite manufacturers and sample their blends. Serious Cigars is also one of the few online retailers that offer real-time inventory for their products. The company has two brick and mortar locations in Houston, one of which sports the largest walk-in humidor in the city.

The event is held in a huge tent behind the Serious Cigar store and allows tobacco enthusiasts an opportunity to be exposed to dozens of the world's top cigar blends. Guests will stroll through "cigar alley" and mingle with 30 of the top manufacturers and vendors while enjoying food, drinks and even a mechanical bull.

Each guest receives a gift bag that includes samples of premium cigars from each exhibitor, shirts, caps and a cutter, along with informative literature from some of the other vendors."It's no wonder that this event sells out each year in a matter of minutes," states Serious Cigar owner Ron Lesseraux. "For tobacco enthusiasts, this is the Super Bowl of Cigars."

Early check-in starts at noon on the day of the event. Attendees are encouraged to carpool, as parking is somewhat limited. This year, the Festival has also partnered with UBER to provide rides to the Festival. By using the promo code TCF2015, first time riders can get $20 off their ride.
