Oly Hempfest 2008

Submitted by David Borden on
Olympia Hempfest was founded in 2003 as a gathering of 500 people on the original Washington state capitol campus in downtown Olympia and has grown into one of the major Olympia events in just under its fourth year. With an annual theme of “Helping,” each year Oly Hempfest strives to break down the barriers and remind people about our heritage and our responsibility to be active citizens. The event is at a 24-acre state-owned property adjacent to Capitol Lake and downtown Olympia, WA. It is the northern extension of the Washington state capitol campus. Admission is free (with a $5 suggested donation). Entertainment includes 16+ musical acts made up of regional touring bands and Olympia’s most prominent upcoming artists performing. In addition there will be a disc golf course for your enjoyment. Speakers: This year we are again privileged to have some of the most prominent people in the Hemp movement today speak at our event: Jack Herer, Eddy Lepp, Elvy Musikka, Jeff Steinborne, Barry Cooper just to name a few. Munchie Market: We are proud to announce that we have a new and improved food court this year with an emphasis on Hemp, Organic, and Vegan foods. Vendor Row: The Vendor Row is where art, craft, & import vendors from all over the country converge; you are sure to find some great hemp-based and hemp-related products. If you have any questions or need more information about our event please feel free to contact Jeremy Miller at 360-456-3517 or email us at [email protected].
