upcoming events

Community engagement and access for all is central to our purpose. That's why we never charge admission to our educational events. Our bi-monthly Canna Socials connect the general public with industry experts and compelling guest speakers. You can also find us at expos, festivals, and other partner events throughout the region.

If you are interested in sponsoring or hosting an upcoming event, please reach out with your ideas. Thank you!
