Evergreen San Francisco
A new festival is coming to town to join the 420 celebrations this year. Evergreen San Francisco is a 9 day festival to celebrate the global holiday for the cannabis culture that born back in the 1970s. From April 16th through April 24th, Evergreen San Francisco will celebrate the “city’s diverse cannabis lounges and dispensaries and showcase iconic attractions, food spots, nature hikes, immersive art, and experiences throughout the city” (Kron 4).
This new nine day festival was brought to life in partnership between San Francisco Travel Association, San Francisco Cannabis Retailers Alliance, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, Fisherman’s Wharf Community Benefit District, and San Francisco Cannabis Equity Group to share San Francisco’s rich cannabis history. Joe D’Alessandro, the President and CEO of San Francisco Travel said “San Francisco was at the forefront of legalizing and socializing cannabis. As the city emerges from the pandemic, it seems only fitting that we celebrate that which makes San Francisco unique and diverse. Cannabis tourism has the potential to grow exponentially. With the launch of Evergreen San Francisco, the city continues to be a trendsetter in the industry” (Kron 4).
There is going to be so many ways to celebrate the cannabis culture right here in San Francisco. More than 25 of San Francisco’s cannabis lounges and dispensaries will be a part of the festivities and will be offering promotions and experiences for all. Other activities and experiences to enjoy include the Collective High’s ” High, San Francisco!” interactie cannabis scavenger hunt, the Green Dream Cannabis Tour and a 420 history workshop located at the San Francisco Library. The famous Fisherman’s Wharf invites vistors to come and explore the history of cannabis through writer Alia Volz’s Home Baked: My Mom, Marijuana and the Stoning of San Francisco. In addition, Volz will be having a book signing on April 23rd also at Fisherman’s Wharf in the Plaza. Of course, lets not forget about the annual gathering at Hippie Hill on April 20th.
