Hemp Fest Aug. 27, 28 In Selma
Lake Selmac likely will be smokin’ with activity on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 27 and 28, for the Jefferson State Hemp Expo.
Presented by the Hemp and Cannabis Foundation, the event is billed as Southern Oregon’s largest educational hemp exposition and world-class music festival.
Approximately 35 regional music groups and individuals are to perform.
There also will be camping, food booths, guest speakers, a beer garden, vendors, artists and a hemp and recycled clothing fashion show.
Organizer Erik Vestnys said that the event has been planned since January, and was inspired by similar festivals in Seattle and Portland.
Hemp and medical marijuana advocates from around the nation will be present to educate attendees on those issues, Vestnys stated.
“There will be a big presence of people trying to get the vote out and get people to educate themselves about the coming changes to Oregon’s medical marijuana law and hemp farming laws,” according to Vestnys.
“There are a lot of people out there that are definitely supporting the coming changes to the medical marijuana laws,” he said.
Vestnys added that the event should be “fun for the whole family.”
