Soul stoners and new cannabis community members alike are on their way to a huge hemp field outside of Oregon City.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Cannabis enthusiasts from all over the Northwest are coming together in the Oregon countryside this weekend for the 2019 Hemp Aid Cannabis Festival.
Hemp Aid is a weekend-long family friendly event with Free admission and Free onsite parking. There is some camping, but on a very limited basis1.
MC Rafael Martinez will welcome guests to the show at 11 am on Saturday. The weekend lineup of live music on the Main Stage is stacked with exciting performers set to get the audience on their feet and keep them there.
Some of your favorite artists are most certainly on the roster. Don’t miss performances by Real One, The legendary Busy Bee, Pony Boy (Los Marijuanos), Justin James Bridges, Mack & Dub, Bad Habitat, Vicky Loveless, Yung Gates (featuring YDS) and more. John Cornett opens the show Sunday at 11:05 am, for the "early risers", and the music rolls on till 7 pm.
In its second year, Hemp Aid is a gathering created to help others. Proceeds from the 2019 event will go to Autism, Hempstalk, and the Human Trafficking Rescue Mission.
Event-goers will find this a great opportunity to meet some of the industry's professionals, as well as discover the latest trends and products.
The speaker panel has been selected to inform and inspire the audience. Guest speakers include Paul Stanford (The Hemp & Cannabis Foundation), Michael Mullins (Stoney Girl Gardens), Madeline Martinez (Oregon NORML), Nickie Gates, Mary Haddock, Bonnie King (Salem-News.com), Jeremiah Kelley, Eric Lewellen and Peggy Buttan.
“This year's Hemp Aid will be way bigger than last year,” said Nickie Gates, co-founder of Hemp Aid.
Enjoying the “dunk and dabs” dunk tank, product demonstrations, live music, food vendors, face painting, and meeting many colorful cannabis-loving people will surely be a satisfying way to spend the weekend with the family before summer says its final goodbyes.
“The venue is so chill, private and beautiful. All the hard work is absolutely worth it, when the weekend comes and it feels like old home week with our friends & family all turning up,” said Gates, with a smile.
“That means you!”
