Bellingham Budfest is a Whatcom County lifestyle festival that celebrates all that Whatcom county has to offer including our blossoming cannabis culture. We invite you to experience this one of a kind festival. This region is home to numerous successful companies from an array of industries and we want to showcase the special creative nature of this community, including cannabis. Our county has more I-502 licensees per capita than any other in Washington State. We have embraced this new industry and we believe this is something to celebrate!
Bellingham Budfest aims to promote tourism in Whatcom County. We live in one of the most beautiful parts of the state. From its mountains and islands to its cities, towns and farms, we’ve got plenty of appeal to the Cannabis Tourist. Washington State was the first to legalize recreational cannabis and our community has an opportunity to be a leader among leaders as federal legalization approaches closer each day.
Most importantly, Bellingham Budfest is about education and normalization. Our line-up of educational panels being held in the Zuanich Point Park Boathouse will feature top notch speakers from all aspects of the Cannabis world. Learn firsthand the changes, challenges and breakthroughs in the world of Cannabis Policy Reform.
Join us on this historic day. Together we can achieve our goal to:
What is Cannabis Culture? It means different things to different people. Cannabis culture spans many groups. It has a unifying effect that transcends boundaries, and societal barriers. Come to Bellingham Budfest to explore what Cannabis culture is to others and what it may mean to you.
