Keep us Going Strong

Hempfest Fundraising

For the last 29 years, Seattle Hempfest has been community-powered, providing a platform for change by presenting the leading voices of the cannabis community to the world and defining what a "protestival" can accomplish. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, along with thousands of other public events, Hempfest is in a struggle for its very existence, unable to produce our event in its historic venue. Certainly, these decades of work by thousands of Hempfest volunteers paved the way for Washington State to be one of the first two states to legalize. Now we must turn to our community for support so that Hempfest can continue its mission, and get through this unprecedented year as we transition online for our 2020 flagship event.
