The Cannasseur's 2014 4/20 Event Guide

By Kayla Williams — 4/14/2014

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: This 4/20 weekend Leafly will have a team on the ground in Denver, Colorado; Seattle, Washington; Vancouver, British Columbia; and Phoenix, Arizona. We'll be releasing our second round of exclusive Strain Connoisseur t-shirts -- be sure to look for the Leafly team and download the app to grab your free shirt! We can't wait to celebrate the movement with you all #MyLeaf



4/20 is a well-known reference to cannabis with origins dating back to a clandestine search for an abandoned cannabis crop in 1971. This year's calendar 4/20, April 20th, is right around the corner, and the excitement amongst cannabis enthusiasts is palpable. Not only does 4/20 fall on a Sunday this year, interestingly coinciding with the Easter holiday, but is also in the midst of legislative activity and progress representative of a culture on the move.

Below you will find a list of 420-focused events organized geographically for your convenience. Skip the lonely bowls on your couch this year and join your friends and family in celebrating a plant that has brought relief to sick patients, forged friendships among the industry, and started one of the greatest movements in the 21st century.

Note: These events are adults-only and some require a ticket or entry fee, so check each event's details to make sure you're both old enough and have enough money to attend. And, as always, be safe and respectful to your peers!
