Emerald-Cup

Experience the Return of The Emerald Cup [Sponsored]

In 2013, Tim Blake was inspired by his love of cannabis, county fairs and carnivals, and put together what he believed would be a small competition for growers. Fast forward 15 years later and The Emerald Cup is now Northern California’s premier cannabis destination. Dec. 15-16 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, enthusiasts travel from all over the world, to celebrate the annual harvest and crown one crop “Best In Show Flower.”

What makes this year so special is the Emerald Cup’s ability to secure a permit from local law officials to sell cannabis on festival grounds. That’s right! Medical patients and adult recreational users 21 years or older can purchase and consume cannabis at the event!

And what’s a festival without entertainment? Musical acts Big Gigantic, Protoje, Margo Price, Gogol Bordello and more are set to headline, and the festival will be filled with psychedelic art exhibits, world-renowned glass pieces, performance artists, the latest cannabis products on the market and an all-organic food market.

It’s not just the competition that makes the event so unique, it’s the community ethos that brings together top cannabis experts, lawmakers, local farmers, businesses and patrons to discuss and embrace the concept of sustainable outdoor farming and the advancement of cannabis culture.

There’s a reason why The Emerald Cup has been heralded as the “Academy Awards of cannabis” and patrons continue to return year after year. Join us Dec. 15-16, 2018 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa and experience for yourself the magic of The Emerald Cup. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit www.theemeraldcup.com.
