April 20 is the global day to recognize the world’s cannabis culture. We have been hosting 4/20 in Vancouver since 1995. Come enjoy this unique combination of protest, celebration, and farmers’ market!
The number “420” was first used in reference to marijuana in the 1970s by a group of high school friends in California. They called themselves “The Waldos” and met every day at 4:20pm after school to smoke pot. They were also fans of the Grateful Dead, and popularized the use of “420” as code for smoking pot amongst the Dead subculture.
