Less than a year after High Times held the first-ever state-sanctioned cannabis consumption and sales event right here in Sacramento, the event, dubbed the Central Valley Cannabis Cup, is returning to Cal Expo on (you guessed it) Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21, 2019.

In addition to the hundreds of cannabis industry vendors that will be on hand competing for the highly coveted Cannabis Cup awards, the weekend will also see major international headlining musical acts take to the festival’s stage, including Rae Sremmurd on Saturday and ScHoolboy Q on Sunday. Rounding out the impressive lineup will be Soulja Boy, Willy J Peso and King Kahali (all performing on Saturday), as well as Too $hort and Afroman (both playing on Sunday).

Tickets to this 21-plus only event are on sale now at Cannabiscup.com and start at $50 for single-day general admission, or get the two-day general admission pass for just $75. Single-day VIP tickets are $100, and a weekend long VIP pass will set you back $160. VIP perks include an express entry lane, access to a lounge area, complimentary munchies and bottled water, a T-shirt, poster and more. There’s also a “Super VIP” option for just over $400 that features all sorts of other extras, including, but not limited to, a “wake and bake session with High Times editors!”

Gates open both days at noon and according to their website, you’re welcome to bring your own weed: “You can carry up to one ounce of cannabis legally in the State of California and are welcome to bring your personal stash to our event.”
