This 1st annual event will be held Nov 3 – 4, on Fremont Street, just blocks from the Fremont Street Experience.
The amazing production crew for this years event has lined up some spectacular musical acts, fantastic vendors and will feature a Hemposium stage in true Hempfest fashion with some of the top speaker from all around the country to help educate people on the benefits of cannabis and hemp.
The Seattle HEMPFEST® protestival started out as a humble little gathering of stoners and has grown into one of the most sophisticated cannabis policy reform events in the world. Originally billed in 1991 as the “Washington Hemp Expo”, the first Hempfest started in Volunteer Park where it would stay for three years. With a meager attendance of only 500 people, and a staff that included of 20 members of the Seattle Peace Heathens Community Action Group, there was no way to know that we were sowing the seeds that would someday make Pacific Northwest history.
