Top 4/20 Celebrations Across the United States

If you’ve never been to a 4/20 festival or celebration, then you’re missing out!

While Google won’t give you a straightforward answer as to why the number 4/20 is associated with cannabis–and unfortunately, it may just be cannabis lore lost to history–it’s the favorite number of millions across the world due to its weed-related connotation.

Lucky for us, the number also gives us an annual holiday–April 20th.

Check out these top 4/20 festivals across the country if you want to spend the iconic holiday celebrating your favorite substance!

The Mile High 420 Festival is a celebration of Colorado being the first state to legalize cannabis. Cannabis activists from all over the world congregate here to celebrate, fight weed stigma, and honor the past and future of cannabis.

This chill 4/20 festival has a killer lineup, including:

  • Gucci Mane
  • Ohgeesy
  • Afroman
  • Big Boss Vette

National Cannabis Festival in Washington, DC

The National Cannabis Festival was dreamt up in 2015 when a group of cannabis enthusiasts banded together to organize a celebration of the progressing cannabis laws in DC and throughout the country. They wanted to highlight both cannabis culture and the nonprofits paving the way for all of the incredible work being done.

This festival includes both amazing music and a Policy Summit featuring “the voices of activists and advocacy partners, cannabis experts, community leaders, lawmakers, and veterans’ groups.”

Headliners this year include Wu-Tang Clan with Redman and Thundercat.

Experiences include:

  • The concert
  • VIP memberships

Final Thoughts

April 20th is about a lot more than just partying. It’s a day to celebrate the successes of cannabis advocacy across the country and give back to the community, come together with a common cause, look back on where we’ve been, and dream of where we can one day be.

Remember, cannabis prohibition isn’t over for everybody. Let’s fight for our community with as much enthusiasm as we have for our favorite plant!
