On Sunday, April 23rd,  EarthFair at Balboa Park — the largest free annual environmental fair in the world — will include a medical marijuana village for the first time in its 28 years.

Dubbed “CannaVillage,” the NON-SMOKING free event will take place on the lawn area east of the Federal Building/Hall of Champions (see map below) from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Hosted by The Association of Cannabis Professionals (ACP,) the CannaVillage will feature over 40 vendor booths, live music from reggae artist Pato “I do not sniff coke, I only smoke sinsemilla” Banton, an outdoor yoga area, hemp demos, and guest speakers from the marijuana industry.

Per organizers, “the focus of the Village is to educate the masses on the healing and wellness benefits of cannabinoids as well as exposing the power of hemp to save our Earth through environmental sustainability.”


In other cannabis-related Earth Day news, San Diego’s finest legal and licensed dispensary (Torrey Holistics) is hosting an Earth Fair at their Sorrento Valley location, Saturday, April 22nd from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

In addition to live music, vendors, food trucks, and in-store specials, select patients will participate in a “Save the Earth, Plant A Clone” program with Desert Rose Nursery.
