About Us


Not since it's heyday in the 1940's has pipe smoking been as popular as it is today and Raleigh is embracing this with a growing local pipe club: The Triangle Area Pipe Smokers (TAPS), host of the annual Raleigh Pipe and Tobacciana Expo

Pipe Talk

Along with good food and good conversation, we also sometimes have raffles, pipe swaps, and we are always sampling different tobaccos donated by club members or tobacco companies. Another regular part of our meeting is a show-and-tell segment where members show off a cherished pipe, accessories or even their whole collection. 

Join Us!

Our meetings, typically held on the second Sunday of each month, are open for anyone to join us, new pipe smokers, long time smokers, collectors or just someone interested in learning more about pipe smoking.
