LOS ANGELES, CA – The inaugural Green Street Festival, an event organizers are calling a “cannabis-infused South by Southwest,” is set to kick off next weekend in historic downtown Los Angeles.
According to a High Times report, the festival was announced in January, and is being put on by local entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk and his cannabis business Green Street. It is going to feature some of Los Angeles’ top restaurants, leading Cannabis brands, and entertainers from around the world.
According to organizers, the festival will be, “anchored by the 8 story, 70,000 sqft, cannabis event and business epicenter located at 718 S. Hill Street featuring vendors, educational speakers, games, hotels & food activations from our awesome neighbors.”
The event is open to anyone 21 years and older. Although festival-goers will not be able to purchase cannabis, organizers said there will be state-compliant consumption areas throughout the area.
“There is a large smoking area right next to the registration area for the event, another on the 2nd floor balcony, and another area outside the Majestic Downtown Theater during the concert,” organizers announced.
“Weed is the headliner of this festival. We’ve been to countless Cannabis events across the country and we as attendees want to smoke weed with our friends and check in with the community, eat delicious food, and then be entertained… in that order,” said Rama Mayo, President of Green Street.
The festival kicks off Friday, May 13th with a special private dinner event at Gusto Green and ALTA Penthouse. The full itinerary of events can be found on the Green Street Fest website.
