Licensed HEMPFEST Events

For 27 years, Seattle Events has developed a brand and model of HEMPFEST® “Protestival” to educate the public on cannabis issues and promote legalization initiatives, in a unique atmosphere mixing grassroots activism and a music festival. This successful model and registered brand are now being officially licensed and emulated in several other cities and states, as legalization efforts spread nationwide.

Unfortunately we ended our relationship with the prior Las Vegas Hempfest producer after the June 4, 2016 event.  Despite our efforts to get him to stop using our name he continued to revert to it.  This production is not associated with him in any way!  Jeremy Miller, who produced the Olympia Hempfest here in Washington along with Gerald Lechner who produced the Hempfest 420 Masquerade Ball in Las Vegas last year are the producers.
