 Seattle’s HEMPFEST® Event and the COVID-19 Coronavirus:

Updated 3/19/2020-

Seattle Hempfest organizers are regularly monitoring directives issued by state and local authorities related to the Covid-19 Virus outbreak. We have taken several precautions concerning our day to day operations.

NOTE: At this time THERE ARE NO PLANS TO CANCEL SEATTLE HEMPFEST IN AUGUST.

OUR TRADITIONAL April 4/20 FEST IN SEATTLE however (our 2nd biggest Membership fundraiser), is canceled, and will instead take to the internet with a first-of-its-kind live Multicast event, joined by members globally from the safety of their homes.

We recognize that the Covid-19 Novel Virus outbreak is not a short term event and is likely going to have implications into the spring, we expect that HEMPFEST, which is scheduled for late summer, will be a safe event. This is a fluid situation and we are prepared to honor all official directives issued by state and local authorities.

Seattle HEMPFEST has taken these actions proactively, early on in this health crisis:

Released our staff from most in-office duties. (we are periodically checking voicemail)

Closed our HEMPFEST Central storefront (our online store and vending sales are still in operation)

Moved our monthly Core Group meetings online, successfully adapting the use of online multicast.

Stay safe and follow the directives of local, state, and federal authorities. We will get through this if we stay calm, be sensible, and act responsibly.
