June 2016 Events
- I have lived my entire life in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon. It’s one of the most beautiful places on earth, and home to the Oregon State Fairgrounds. I have gone to the Oregon State Fair, and events at the fairgrounds, as far back as I can remember. My community college graduation was held there, specifically at the Pavilion. The Oregon State Fairgrounds property is a hub for Oregon’s agriculture industry, which is one of the largest in the country.
Knowing all of that, it was with tremendous surprise and joy that I learned that an event is coming to the Oregon State Fairgrounds, and to the Pavilion no less! And it’s not just any cannabis event. It’s the Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair, which is going to feature actual live plant displays. As I said, Oregon is a national leader in agriculture, and cannabis is on its way to taking its rightful place at the top of Oregon’s leading agriculture products. After all, cannabis cultivation is at its core agriculture, and so it’s fitting that this event is coming to the Oregon State Fairgrounds.
I tip my hat to the organizers of this event because of where it will take place. The Oregon State Fairgrounds Pavilion is a government property, and getting the State of Oregon to agree to allow live plant exhibits was something that I’m sure wasn’t an easy task. The fact that this event is occurring where it’s occurring is huge. So huge that it can’t be understated how historic this event really is, and is really a sign of the times.
One thing that I love about the event is that it’s going to be on the weekend. So many events take place during the week when people like me who have a day job can’t attend. The Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair will be taking place on August 13-14. I’ll be there, and hope to see you there too. Below is more information about the event. You can purchase tickets at this link here, which start at just $20. You can also check out the event on Facebook:
