The Emerald Cup


The Emerald Cup is Northern California’s premier destination for medicinal marijuana, while advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming. Its reputation is firmly solidified as the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competition in the world. As a group, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together experts and educators in the cannabis field to our fellow farmers, patients, and patrons each year. It is a community celebration that has grown to become a global movement honoring the year’s finest, organic, sun-grown, medicinal cannabis harvest.

This year’s Cup is the fifteenth running of the annual event and will offer cannabis enthusiasts from all over the world a chance to participate in a unique, highly-curated experience across three venues over two days. The lineup will feature acclaimed musical acts, presentations from over 50 industry experts, artists and educators. There will be product and flower judging across multiple categories, as well as a range of the most respected exhibitors and retailers offering food, products and entertainment. The headlining acts, speakers and artists will be announced over the coming weeks.

“We’re proud that the Emerald Cup continues to grow and has become one of the most impactful cannabis events of the year,” said Tim Blake, Founder and Producer of the Emerald Cup. “It’s truly a forum and celebration for anyone who is passionate about cannabis—from the growers to the patients to the vendors and the performers—and captures all the elements that make this industry so special. We look forward to welcoming this year’s attendees and celebrating what cannabis means to this community.”

Tickets are available for purchase through the Emerald Cup website, as well as ticket retailer Eventbrite. Weekend passes start at $120 and attendees must be over the age of 21. This year’s event will be a celebration of the new ways of thinking and living within cannabis culture.
