Northern California Cannabis Cup Heads To The Sonoma County Fairgrounds

May 1st, 2017 (Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY): In just over a month Santa Rosa, California will be hosting one of this year’s biggest cannabis celebrations. As a part of the 2017 HIGH TIMES Live & Legal Cannabis Experience Tour, the NorCal Cannabis Cup will take place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa on June 3rd and 4th 2017.

Celebrating California’s legalization of recreational cannabis, this event offers a live cannabis experience for all. NorCal cup will feature seminars entitled “Teaching the World to Grow,” as well as Live Grow rooms attendees can tour. The NorCal Cannabis Cup will highlight the versatility of marijuana. Even if you choose not to smoke or vape, you can still benefit from cannabis’ healing properties. The Cup has always held select infusions in high regard as different tastemakers find different ways to innovatively change how we consume and create. Attendees can see all of this in action during the Taste of Cannabis Chef Competition where culinary cannabis geniuses will face off in head-to-head battle to show off the freshest techniques and push our idea of edibles to the next level.
The musical highlights differ from our last installation featuring another diverse lineup of talent for two days. The bill hosts two musical giants, 311 and The Wailers, as well as Fortunate Youth, Arden Park Roots, and The Tahoes.
The Cannabis Cup is the original and highest honor of independently lab tested and judged cannabis products, and winners represent the best in California and the United States. Since 1987, HIGH TIMES has hosted Cannabis Cups around the world to celebrate cannabis with music, speakers, vendors, and interactive cannabis “experiences”.
