District Set to Host National Cannabis Festival This Weekend

-

Marijuana enthusiasts are preparing for the National Cannabis Festival scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 23 at the RFK Festival Grounds in Southeast DC.

The sixth edition of the event will feature music performances by Wiz Khalifa, Ghostface Killah, Slick Rick, Lettuce, Backyard Band, Dupont Brass, and more. 

Other attractions at the festival include Exhibitor Fair, Munchies Zone, Education Pavilion, and Advocacy Village.

On Sunday, April 24, the National Cannabis Championship will be presented by Gentleman Toker. 

Festival-goers are not required to wear face masks, provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or show negative test results, in accordance with up-to-date local health and safety guidelines. 

General admission tickets were still available for $85 at the time of our publishing, while two-day passes are currently sold out.

The National Cannabis Festival was called off in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The festival was first held on April 23, 2016, with activists and enthusiasts representing 30 states and the District coming together at the Festival Grounds at RFK Stadium to celebrate progress on marijuana legalization in DC and around the country.
