Attendees can buy swag like grower’s gear, art, wellness products and more from more than 60 vendors. There’s also a “Munchies Court” for anyone looking for ribs, pizza, chicken and waffles, etc.

Keynote speakers include former Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, Councilmember-at-Large David Grosso (DC) and Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC).

Festival sponsor and Adams Morgan hydroponics shop Wash Hydro will be posted up at the Wash Hydro Growers Corner, where D.C. residents curious about growing their own weed can talk to experts and participate in activities like “Grow Your Own 101.”

Keep in mind, even at a weed festival, it’s still illegal to smoke in public places like stadiums, streets, parks or parking lots.
