Summer isn’t quite over yet. There’s one more county fair coming to LA you won’t want to miss. Producer/actor Seth Rogen is bringing his Hilarity for Charity County Fair to Downtown LA’s Fashion District this Saturday, September 14.

Of course, he won’t be alone. Rogen is bringing friends Adam Devine, Andrew Rannells, Ben Feldman, Casey Wilson, Ilana Glazer, Ike Barinholtz, Jeff Ross, Josh Gad, Kate Micucci, Nick Kroll, Regina Hall, and Riki Lindhome to help run the games and rides.

I mean, who wouldn’t want a sno-cone served by Olaf himself?

Performances include Tony Hawk rocking the half pipe as well as Anderson .Paak rocking the carnival.

While there aren’t any specifics on how cannabis will factor in, he also mentioned alcohol and food, so there will probably be a consumption area somewhere at the carnival. Obviously, this is a 21+ event. If it’s been a dream of yours to have Seth Rogen pass you a spliff, this is probably where it’s going to happen.

Sadly, as of right now, tickets for the event are sold out, but you can still add your name to the waitlist. It’s not a guarantee, but at least it’s a shot.

Hilarity for Charity

Founded in 2012 by Rogen and wife Lauren Miller, Hilarity for Charity is dedicated to raising money for Alzheimer’s research. Rogen has been a vocal advocate for Alzheimer’s research since his mother-in-law’s diagnosis of the early-onset form of the illness. In 2014, Rogen took his passion to Congress, joking that he was not their to advocate for cannabis legalization.

“First, I should answer the question I assume many of you are asking; yes I’m aware this has nothing to do with the legalization of marijuana,” he told the committee. “In fact, if you can believe it, this concerns something that I find even more important.”

Cannabis is said to remove a toxic protein associated with the degenerative condition. According to Marijuana Moment, the federal government is calling for more research into how medical marijuana can aid in the slowing of Alzheimer’s symptoms.
