About the National Cannabis Festival
In early 2015 a group of cannabis policy advocates, business leaders and enthusiasts joined together around the idea to host the National Cannabis Festival (NCF), an event celebrating progress on legalization in DC and across the nation. We envisioned creating an event recognizing the spirit of the cannabis movement and the non-profit groups that have worked to influence state and federal legislators, paving the way for growth of both industry and repeal of prohibition policies. In 2017, 7,300 people from 31 states and Washington, DC attended the festival. The 2018 National Cannabis Festival takes place on April 21, 2018 at RFK Stadium.
