Vermont Hemp Fest
Welcome to the second annual Vermont Hemp Fest, taking place September 8-9, 2018 at Burke Mountain Hotel and Conference Center in East Burke, Vermont.
Already one of Vermonts premiere cannabis events, Hemp Fest 2018 will feature two days of programming, including a keynote address from Oregon CBDs Seth Crawford, Ph.D, agricultural, hemp and CBD exhibitors, a Friday Night Business Networking event sponsored by Witlon, food trucks, live music, Sunday hemp brunch and more.
The inaugural Hemp Fest in 2017 welcomed over 500 attendees. Just a year later, with the number of registered hemp growers having quadrupled in number, and exponential growth in the publics interest in all things cannabis, we expect sponsors and vendors will have exposure to over 800 attendees over the course of the weekend - as well as a wide variety of networking and business opportunities with each other.
Please park at the Base Lodge at 223 Sherburne Lodge Road and take our complimentary shuttle up to the Hotel. Shuttles run round trip all day. Registration, located on the patio of the hotel, begins at 11 a.m. Saturday. Visit the landing page for the most up-to-date details - we look forward to seeing you at Burke Mountain in September!
