It’s finally here! Our Super “Bowl,” our Christmas, the biggest event for any cannabis consumer or retailer: 420! We’ve been looking forward to 420 since last Hempfest, and we're excited to share our favorite Seattle events happening on Saturday, April 20 2019:
Spliff Film Fest @ SIFF Cinema Egyptian
The first ever Spliff Film Fest showcases short films made “by the stoned, for the stoned.” Expect trippy visuals, comedy shorts, parodies of anti-drug PSAs, and mini documentaries. Concessions will be served, but you’ll probably want to bring your own snacks and sodas, if you catch my drift.
420Fest @ Culture Yard
Like Christmas, 420 is a holiday where people celebrate by meeting up with their friends and loved ones. If you’re far from your usual stoner circle this year, head over to Culture Yard for Seattle Hempfest’s annual 420Fest party! There will be food, live music, and lots of flagrant cannabis consumption with like-minded individuals. Per Washington state law, this has to be a members only event, but don’t worry because you can purchase a membership at the door.
Laser 420 @ Pacific Science Center
Get potted up on weed and enjoy some “psychedelic laser imagery” set to “trippy music.” We’re not sure whether the playlist will be more classic or contemporary, but it’ll be a lot of fun either way!
Free State Park Day @ All Washington State Parks
Get out of the city, unplug, and enjoy nature’s splendor this 420 while entrance to all Washington state parks is free! Unfortunately, smoking weed in a public place (like a state park) is not allowed, but you are legally permitted to hotbox your tent or RV!
Nicky Jam @ WaMu Theater
Medellin-based reggaetón sensation Nicky Jam, best known for hits like "Voy A Beber” and "Juegos Prohibidos,” is performing in Seattle on 420! Coincidence? We think not.
Cucci’s Spooky Weed @ Kremwerk
Local drag performer Cucci Bianca is celebrating 420 by hosting a stony, creepy, and gory drag show with some of her favorite queens. If for no other reason, you should come to see a special performance by my favorite Seattle drag queen, Voodoo Nightshade.
4:20 SNAP 90’s Dance Party @ LoFi Performance Gallery
Everyone loves an excuse to dance to 90’s music, and SNAP— a recurring 90’s dance party— happens to fall on 420 this year!
That 420 Show @ The Rendezvous
If the 420 drag show isn’t gonna do it for ya, consider attending a 420 burlesque show instead! Presented by Sinful Sisters Productions, That 420 Show is a burlesque tribute to our beloved herb which features aerial performances, bellydancing, LED spinning, and what we presume is a raffle for free weed.
BunnyCon Easter Bunny Bar Hop
If you’re the absolute worst, and you don’t think it’s abrasive to dress up like Santa Claus and get shitfaced for Seattle SantaCon, then you’re gonna love this excuse to dress up like the Easter Bunny and go on a bar crawl!
. . . . . .
It goes without saying that in order to properly enjoy any and all of these 420 festivities, you’re gonna need some weed. Lucky for you, Herbn Elements has the best 420 deals in Seattle this year!
