2016 marks the third harvest of legal cannabis in Washington State and we invite you to celebrate this occasion with us.
What is Croptoberfest?
Attendees will receive an experience that has yet to visit Yakima. Starting 2014, Croptoberfest has built an educational event that showcases the developing cannabis industry. We do this by offering over 6 hours of education along with a trade show that high lights some of the industry's most engaging companies. Get your “General Admission” ticket at www.hemptownhall.com
If you want to know about industrial hemp and what’s happening in Washington, this is the time and place to do it! I am thrilled to Keynote and moderate three World Class Industrial Hemp Panels at the 3rd Annual Croptoberfest. The State of WA passed industrial hemp legislation in March of 2016, and it’s time to prepare as the regulations are being drafted. So in addition to two incredible Marijuana Panels, this year’s Croptoberfest will feature a dynamic hemp overview presented by me, multiple international hemp experts (joining remotely via Skype), hemp industry leaders, and Emily Febles, our heroic Industrial Hemp Coordinator at the WA State Dept. of Agriculture!
See the schedule of Industrial Hemp Panels below, along with additional Featured Speakers. The Facebook Event Page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/161165797668069/. And join us for the networking afterparty featuring Arch D.J. and Adrian Xavier!
