Guide To The National Cannabis Festival 2022 In DC

Celebrate the industry's progress with music, education, advocacy, and much more at this year's National Cannabis Festival.

When cannabis first started gaining legal traction in the United States, plant enthusiasts and advocates teamed up to celebrate how far our industry has come with the 2016 inaugural National Cannabis Festival (NCF). Fast forward to 2022, the event is back and better than ever with a packed lineup, games, education sessions, contests, and more.

Just like it sounds, the National Cannabis Festival (NCF) celebrates all things marijuana and the progress we’ve made while recognizing the many nonprofit organizations that have helped end statewide marijuana prohibition. NCF stands behind three main themes, music, education, and advocacy, allowing each guest to head home feeling welcomed within the country’s evolving cannabis space.

Where Is The National Cannabis Festival?

The festival will be up and running on April 23, 2022, just one mile from the United States Capitol Building. More specifically, NCF will take place on the lawn at the RFK Festival Grounds along the Anacostia River in Lot 8 of the RFK Stadium in Washington, DC, per the festival’s website
