Emerald Cup Returns To Santa Rosa

December 08. 2019 | By Wayne Jessup

Sports fans can have their various internecine competitions, because when the deal comes down, we’ve got The Cup… The Emerald Cup that is, and it’s coming home to the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. The world’s largest outdoor organic cannabis competition takes place the weekend of December 14/15 with this year’s Willie Nelson Award honoree Tommy Chong, a slate of bands including Santigold, Steel Pulse, and Flatbush Zombies, and a host of speakers, ranging from industry experts to NBA star Matt Barnes, as well as the main event, which features 500+ contest entries from over 300 brands.

An app is available for the first time to aid your planning. There will be a drive to benefit the Redwood Empire Food Bank, and if you plan an early arrival, make a date with the Emerald Cup team to help replant trees in MLK, Jr Park.
