Santa Rosa, CA (August 31, 2017) – The 14th annual Emerald Cup, the premier cannabis event, proudly announces that early bird tickets are now on sale at https://theemeraldcup.com. The Emerald Cup will take place at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA from December 9-10, 2017.
The Emerald Cup, founded by Tim Blake in 2003, is California’s premier outdoor organic medicinal cannabis competition for growing and breeding. What started as a small passionate 200-person event at Blake’s Area 101 property has blossomed into today’s most prestigious organic cannabis competition. The two-day event gathers growers, industry leaders, and cannabis enthusiasts together to partake in educational panels from legislation to farming practices, while brining you face to face with cutting edge vendors, and topped with a diverse musical lineup.
Tim Blake enthusiastically expresses, “Our 2016 Cup was our most successful event to date as we continue to grow during this historic time in our industry. I am proud to say that 2017 will see even greater improvements with new partners and team members added to our strong Emerald Cup team to make the experience even better.” He adds, “Stay tuned for more details and announcements on our panellists, awards, and new initiatives.”
2016’s press accolades assert Blake’s spirit with Cannabis Now stating, “This one-of-a-kind cannabis competition is a magnet for strain celebrities, attracting all-star entries from the upper echelon of cultivation,” while The Smoker’s Club noted, “This event is about bringing the real cannabis community together and keeping the soul of the industry where it belongs. In the hands of our growers and hustlers.”
Now in its 14th year, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together experts and educators in the cannabis field from 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. Don’t miss what Leafly calls, “The event serves as a cultural watering hole and a forum for industry networking…the Emerald Cup pays homage to a bountiful fall harvest through just the right mix of art, community, and revelry.” More details and tickets can be found at http://theemeraldcup.com.
