We’ve already written about the benefits of Canadian cannabis, but where should you go on the most popular day to consume marijuana? Here we’ve got a list of some 420 events in Canada that could be close to you!
In Toronto, 420 is always packed with people right in the middle of the city, which has some pretty disastrous effects on traffic flow. The celebrations at Yonge-Dundas Square include musicians, comedians, and participation in the annual marijuana march.
Over in French Canada, there is a laid back 4/20 gathering at the Mount Royal monument that brings very large crowds, as long as the weather cooperates.
The Peace East 420 Festival is a cannabis education and med-u-cation celebration! This is an outdoor festival event for cannabis activists, consumers, and advocates. Featuring demonstrations, speakers, music, comedy, camping and a kind kitchen by donation!!!
On parliament hill, the 420 gathering can bring large crowds that protest for the nationwide legalization and decriminalization of marijuana. With Canada’s PM promising legalization during his tenure, the parliament hill event will be much more celebratory than previously years efforts.
Although a smaller Ontario town, this 420 event will be one to remember. The rally will run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at downtown Victoria Park. It will include speeches, vendors, live entertainment and prizes. It’s aimed at pushing for the desensitization of cannabis and to help educate people about the plant.
The westernmost part of the country in Vancouver are having their event at 1204 Beach Avenue. The event is brought to you by Cannabis Culture Magazine which is owned and run by legendary marijuana activists and politicians Marc and Jodie Emery. Marc was at the center of a huge controversy back in 2009 when he was extradited from Canada to the US to serve a five-year sentence for selling mail order cannabis seeds across the border. Since then, Mr. Emery is seen as a hero and political prisoner by most of the Canadian cannabis-loving community and beyond.
Downtown Victoria British Columbia will be a hotspot for 420 participants this year. With so many new dispensaries opening their doors up in the last 12 months, the cannabis community will surely have a reason to celebrate.
The cannabis community in Calgary, Alberta has come together and will be having a gathering in Inglewood at one of the most popular dispensaries in the city, appropriately named the 420 Clinic.
Being held at the beautiful City Park on the Okanagan Lake, this 420 event is being held at one of the most beautiful urban parks in Canada.

With a special focus this year on decriminalization, this year’s event should have a significant impact on those still in federal prison because of the old style legislation on marijuana prosecution.
