There are tons of things going on at Cannifest that we do just to bring the community together. Here is a small sampling of some of the other cool things that will be going on at Cannifest.

Scott Holmquist – chronic freedom

The series of five books, chronic freedom, dirt, light, 3 books and Big Drug Factory – Unfound, by Scott Holmquist, represent a single work and unified attempt to survey, collect and interrogate traces of the histories comprising the back-to-the-land and marijuana production worlds as they evolved in Southern Humboldt County, California, from the late 1960s through 2010. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see one of a limited edition series, on display in Franceschi Hall. For more info, check out his website here.

Interactive Cannabis Exhibit

Check out the activities in Weed the People, an interactive zone for adults to have fun and learn about cannabis. In addition to the chronic freedom series and the Cannabis Community Confessional:

  • Help Betsy Ross make a liberty quilt
  • Take your picture in the photo booth and create your own selfie to place on the wall
  • Make a hand or finger print on hemp canvas to represent your own liberty
  • Listen to professionals during our small group Ask an Expert discussions
  • See the remarkable new brands being produced in Humboldt
  • Help create a timeline about cannabis in California

What do you think the future will bring? We’ll create a time capsule at the end of the festival and reopen it at a time to be determined later on down the road.

Cannabis Community Confessional

Tell your truth in the Cannabis Community Confessional—a booth where you can anonymously share your personal experiences with pot. Then read other’s confessions on the wall nearby. You’ll even see your own anonymous confession alongside others as the weekend progresses.

Mind if I do a J?  Dab the Dude with Jeff Dowd

The Dude will be at Cannifest!  Yes, the man made infamous by the big screen comedy “The Big Lebowski”, Jeff Dowd, will be at Cannifest. You may even have a chance to ‘dab the Dude’.  It’s not a very complicated case, Maude. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, a lotta what-have-yous. What was I saying again? Oh, yeah, Jeff Dowd will be at Cannifest. Spend a little time with Jeff and find out what inspired the Coen Brothers to create the wonderful film that so much of the cannabis community has embraced as it’s own.

Humboldt’s Om: Cannabis Infused Yoga

Saturday 11:30-12:30 – Field Stage
Sunday 11-12 – Grass Roots Stage

Humboldt's OmHumboldt’s Om is offering cannabis-infused yoga intended to educate enthusiasts on the symbiotic relationship between yoga, chakras and cannabis medicine.

Sasha Elizabeth, will be kicking off both days of Cannifest by leading the Practice.

Humboldt’s Om values the importance of building community through creating intentional space for non-linear thinking and healing to occur. All those interested in aligning the body, mind and spirit through the integration of these practices are welcome to join.

It takes a village.

Cannifest is the kick off event for 11th Anniversary of Humboldt Green Week, celebrating all things Green (not just the cannabis community) by bringing the community together using music, art, gardening and education. In order to do that, we have to bring together visual artist, glass artist, musicians, vendors and volunteers.

The cannabis community has got to step up and be the vital component of Humboldt County that we all know it can be. Yet very few people make that leap to helping their neighbor or giving out some sage gardening advice. This is your chance to make a difference.
