The tenth anniversary festival of the Emerald Empire Hempfest will be Friday July 20th to Sunday July 22nd at Maurie Jacobs Park in Eugene. We’re planning a gigantic three-day blowout celebration with all kinds of fun-filled activities, educational and exciting events, bands both electric and acoustic, a hemp apparel fashion show and new product demonstrations modeled by Ganja Goddesses, raffle and giveaways, cutting-edge speakers, information and education stations, and many fabulous food booths. Our mission is to provide knowledge about the many uses of hemp in the home, field and factory: as a highly nutritious food whose seeds have prevented famines, as a fiber for cloth and paper, and as a safe source for making products like particle board, cement, fuel, plastic, and paint currently made from toxic fossil fuels.
There will be belly dancing and fire dancers to entertain you, a food court featuring hemp foods and other nutritious foods, art booths, and vendors featuring many hemp products, as well as info and education booths. Guest speakers will discuss the environmental benefits of hemp, medical uses of marijuana, and ways to end prohibition.
Please join us for all the fun! Our festival is family-friendly (alcohol-free and drug-free as required by the City of Eugene). No illegal activities will be tolerated. Dogs are permitted on leashes. For schedule, list of bands, directions and more, please go to www.emeraldempirehempfest.com.
It’s still not too late to volunteer for positions from security to food to Ganja Goddesses.! Our event is 100% non-profit and volunteer. We run on donations. Many thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers!
