Portland, Oregon, 26th June 2024, ZEX PR WIRE, renowned for its vibrant arts scene and eclectic culture, is now the proud home of a sophisticated and culturally enriching event: the Inaugural Rose City Cigar & Soul Festival. Founded by Ericka Warren, a respected community leader with deep roots in Portland, this festival is set to transform the city’s social landscape by offering an unparalleled elevated experience, community engagement, and rich cultural heritage.

The culture of cigars is rich with history and tradition and is one of connectivity. A conversation over a cigar is an equalizer between complete strangers from different races, genders, and walks of life. A unique combination of art and pleasure, cigar smoking has been associated with some of the most powerful and influential people in the world and seen as a symbol of status and luxury. The Inaugural Rose City Cigar & Soul Festival will bring together multiple cigar groups, cigar enthusiasts, and music lovers from the Pacific NW and across the United States. Business professionals, influencers, entrepreneurs, and music lovers will visit the Rose City to coalesce and share insights and experiences all brought together by the lighting of a fine cigar.

The Rose City Cigar & Soul Festival is the signature event presented by Warren’s company The Onyx Experience. The Onyx mission is to provide opportunities for like-minded individuals to forge connections, grow personally, and explore collectively. This pioneering gathering is designed to unite people through the love of cigars, music, and vibrant networking opportunities. Set in the scenic Portland Metro Area, the festival aims to elevate the cigar culture while offering an immersive experience featuring cigar makers, distillers, musical talents, and local brands.

Taking place from June 28-30, 2024, the festival promises an elevated experience for all attendees. The event boasts an impressive lineup of sponsors and donors, including renowned brand names as well as award-winning, local Black-owned spirit makers. These partnerships reflect the festival’s commitment to supporting and highlighting Black excellence in the spirits industry.

Live Music

One of the cornerstones of Rose City Cigar & Soul’s event series is its live music performances. These events feature local jazz, blues, and soul artists, paying homage to the genres that have significantly shaped American music. The smooth sounds of live performances provide an ambiance that is both sophisticated and welcoming, making each event a memorable experience.

Ericka’s vision for the Rose City Cigar & Soul Festival extends far beyond an elevated party. With a deep passion for community and culture, Warren has curated a series of events that celebrate the local Black Community and the arts. The festival will feature three days of activities designed to foster connection, relaxation, and appreciation for the rich contributions of Black Business to the local economy.

Cigars & Spirits

For cigar enthusiasts and novices alike, Rose City Cigar & Soul offers cigar tastings and spirit pairings. These events provide an opportunity to explore a curated selection of premium cigars paired with fine whiskeys and craft cocktails.

“Rose City Cigar & Soul is about more than cigars and music; it’s about bringing people together to celebrate our shared culture and heritage,” said Ericka Warren. “We’re creating a space where elegance meets community, where people can come together to enjoy high-quality products and experiences while connecting with each other in meaningful ways.”

Portland’s eclectic cultural backdrop provides the perfect setting for this inaugural festival, promising a unique and unforgettable experience for all who attend.
