May 23- 26, 2019
Lake Granbury Conference Center
Granbury, TX

The 2019 C.A.T.S. (Cigar Aficionados Trades & Sales) Festival (aka CATSFEST 6) will be the first Craft Beer AND Cigar Festival in the United States. CATSFEST is so much more than a Craft Beer and Cigar Festival; it is a great community coming together to support our deployed men and women in the Armed Services and having an exceptional time while doing it.
