5th Annual Celebration Set For New Highs This Year
The 2020 event takes place April 18 in Washington, D.C. It goes from “high noon” until 8 p.m..
The festival features live music (bands are to be announced later), an exhibitor fair, a munchies zone, CannaTank for aspiring canna-business owners, panel sessions and the Ultimate Weed Wedding.
There are also four educational pavilions with a focus on health and wellness, agriculture, cannabis policy, and technology.
The location is the The RFK Stadium Festival Grounds, which are located in Lot 6, the field adjacent to Oklahoma Ave NE. Parking is available for $20 (cash only) in Lot 3, 5, 8 and 8A.
The National Cannabis Festival is the largest festival of its kind in the United States. Costumes are encouraged as well as hula-hoops and inflatable flotation devices (yes, it’s it’s in a park and not on a lake).
DC law permits you to possess marijuana-related drug paraphernalia in public. However, glass apparatuses, flame torches, or other large smoking devices are not permitted.
No medical marijuana dispensaries will be on site but there will be dispensary representatives and medical professionals available to answer questions.
You must be 21 and provide a government-approved ID to attend.
