The next event we’re stoked about is Hempapalooza, a three-day Summer Solstice music and film festival, which will take place in Brinnon, WA, this year. Following in the footsteps of Hemp History Week, Hempapalooza is aimed at celebrating and raising awareness about the value of community-based economic development, localization, farm-to-fork programs, and other progress made by the cannabis movement.
Local film, Star Leaf, will be premiering at Hempapalooza. Filmed on the Olympic Peninsula, the backdrop of evergreen trees provides the perfect setting for the film. Are you a fan of cult classics about weed? This horror-style flick features marijuana and aliens! You won’t want to miss it.
Hempapalooza will also host live auditions for The Marijuana Show, a program where weed-related entrepreneurs can present their greatest ideas and have a chance at a grand prize. Coined the “Shark Tank for Ganjapreneurs,” the reality show offered more than $5 million to contestants last season.
The show profiles ganjapreneur hopefuls, giving each contestant the opportunity to pitch an idea to a panel of investors, and then participate in a Boot Camp (aka Bud Camp) to develop a variety of marijuana technologies and products through mentorship, and ultimately, access to millions of dollars in investment capital. It’s weed’s ‘Amazing Race!’
I can’t wait to attend Hempapalooza and celebrate all things hemp! I’ll definitely let you know how it is. If you’re interested in attending, visit http://www.hempapalooza.com/.
