Mardi Grass: Downtown Oakland To Host Huge, Open-Air Cannabis Expo

Organizers expect up to 30,000 cannabis fans to flood into Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in front of Oakland City Hall September 3rd and 4th for The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo 2011.

Tickets just went on sale for the event, which is scheduled to feature three entertainment stages, 300 to 400 industry vendors, dozens of food trucks, and guest celebrities, experts and politicians from the movement.

“It’s the first time ever a city shut down streets [for such an event]”, said Salwa Ibrahim, government relations coordinator for INTCHE 2011. “It’s a big deal for Oakland.”
