Now that cannabis is a legal industry in Canada, there are plenty of new and exciting festivals, conferences, and expos happening right across the country. So many, in fact, that it’s not hard to find a new one or two halls that are hosting a marijuana-focused gathering at least twice a month. The trouble for many is how expensive travel can be. Luckily, if you are in southern Ontario during the month of June, there is a Hempfest coming soon to you. Hamilton will be the next host for Hempfest, with hundreds of tickets available to the public at a cost that won’t break the bank, but is it worth it to attend? Well, we will let you decide that for yourself, but we have a feeling it’s the place you’ll want to be if you have any interest in marijuana use or education.

Despite the event using the title Hempfest, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that this is mainly a consumer-focused event that features very little to do with the hemp plant itself. The majority of the entertainment, speakers, and vendors lined up for the two-day expo are all established in the marijuana industry. Whether you are a consumer who is interested in checking out the hottest product lineups that will be hitting the Canadian market in October 2019, a dispensary owner who is seeking inspiration and connections for contracts, a vendor who would like to show off some of your ideas and or products, or an investor who wants in on the brand new bustling Canadian cannabis industry. This is precisely where you will want to be.

What you can expect

If you do decide to attend this year’s hottest and most talked about Hempfest Cannabis Expo, you will not be disappointed. With everything from live and in action glass blowing artists, a safe outdoor space to enjoy a little green with fellow marijuana enthusiasts, education about the medicinal aspects of cannabinoids, tool demonstrations, over 36 exhibitors to browse, and so much more. It’s no wonder that ticket spaces are limited and selling out fast!
