2. Cannabis Wedding Expo: Boston

SATURDAY October 5, 2019 @ 11:00am-3:00pm

79 Warrenton St
Boston, MA 02116

Cost: $14

It's time for the Cannabis Wedding Expo to head East! We couldn't be more excited to debut the first East Coast Show in The Hub! This will be our 11th Expo overall and there will be no better place to merge our West Coast experience with the East than Boston!

The goal of the Cannabis Wedding Expo is to bridge traditional wedding with specialty cannabis services and products. The Expo gives couples the chance to engage with progressive traditional wedding vendors and specialty cannabis brands to learn how to incorporate cannabis into their wedding day in classy and tasteful ways. From glamorous wedding services and full-blown Budbars, to small nods of cannabis culture, attendees can connect with every vendor they need to make their day unique.

The sale, gifting, and consumption of cannabis at the Expo is strictly prohibited.

Because this event is open to the public, cannabis, and cannabis products are not included with your ticket. There are no free samples of cannabis or cannabis products, no cannabis or cannabis products are ever given away or sold and the gift bags only contain non-cannabis products. Caterers and exhibitors will be passing out samples of non-infused food only.

THURSDAY October 10, 2019 @ 10:00am

Western New England University School of Law
1215 Wilbraham Road
Springfield, MA 01119

If you've ever complained about big businesses gobbling up the cannabis industry, or a lack of people of color and women in leadership positions, or that the criminal expungement process is too slow, or the costs of recreational weed & taxes being too high--it's time to SHOW UP! As a citizen and a constituent, you are entitled to make your voice heard and speak your grievances directly to the Cannabis Control Commission. Tell them WHAT kind of industry you want and HOW you want them to create it. The Commission meets regularly in public locations throughout Boston.
