2017 HIGH TIMES US Cannabis Cup NOR-Cal
Join us June 3rd and 4th, 2017 for the first-ever recreational HIGH TIMES US Cannabis Cup, NorCal. Taking place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Rd, Santa Rosa, CA—we're celebrating California's recent legalization of recreational cannabis!
HIGH TIMES taught the world to grow, and now we're giving you a live cannabis experience, featuring a live grow room, a cannabis career fair, edibles village, topical massage spa, vape lounge and so much more!
Tickets are on sale NOW with special Early Bird prices. Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable.
The US Cannabis Cup will feature a one-of-a-kind, onsite HIGH TIMES living grow room! Stop to smell the flowers—live and real—and see what most have only seen in the pages of HIGH TIMES. Like stepping into a HT photo shoot, experience the set-up, lights and plants, as HIGH TIMES' favorite grow experts Danny Danko and Nico Escondido lead you on a tour of the garden, including time for discussions, questions and answers. Top growers will give demonstrations on nutrients, lighting, room conditions, harvesting and more!
The NorCal Cannabis Cup will highlight the versatility of marijuana. Even if you choose not to smoke or vape, you can still benefit from our favorite herb’s healing properties. Get relaxed at our topical massage spa and chow down with curated edible cuisine pairings in our Edibles Village. Looking to learn? Attend kitchen demos with HIGH TIMES’ edibles editor Elise McDonough and see the pros in action during our "Taste of Cannabis" Chef Competition, in which we challenge top cannabis chefs to create their best dishes in a fast-paced, head-to-head battle to determine whose flavors are the freshest and whose techniques are the most refined and innovative.
With huge wins across the country for marijuana during the 2016 election, the 2017 US Cannabis Cup NorCal will host the HIGH TIMES Legalization Celebration Pavilion. Here, you’ll find a rally stage for activists (there's still much more work to be done!), panels on legal and veterans issues, non-profit exhibitors and the opportunity to hear from government representatives. Learn everything you need to know about the new marijuana business markets popping up around the country, and join us for our job fairs each day.
The marijuana movement is continually evolving, and the NorCal Cannabis Cup will put you at the forefront of the latest studies, technology and industry trends. Learn about the healing properties of CBD and THC at a medical research seminar; get behind-the-scenes scoop on the science of lab testing; and explore new technology at our vape pen clinic.
More interested in the expanding economic opportunities? A cannabis job fair will be offered, along with jobs panels and a bud tender workshop.
Shatter, wax, oil, crumble, sap, budder—concentrates. Call them what you want (consistency aside), dabbing is one of our favorite ways to get high, and we want to spread that love. The US Cannabis Cup will feature rosin press demonstrations, a dab rig exposition and even glass blowing! Not to mention, 710-inspired panels and seminars will offer grow tips for extract artists, touching on all types of concentrates.
