International Pipe Smoking Day - February 20th 2019
On this day we will celebrate the noble art of pipe-smoking and the spirit which pervades the brotherhood and sisterhood of the briar. We will put into practice the time-honored and ancestral traditions of raising our pipes in unison to toast each other and share a bowl together.
Many of our UPCA club have special meetings to celebrate this event. Check our Clubs section for find one near you.
