POSTPONED – National Cannabis Festival Moves 5th Year Celebration to September Amid COVID-19 Concerns

The festival headlined by Method Man and Redman will now take place on September 19th at RFK Stadium.

WASHINGTON, DC – In the wake of the COVID-19 global health crisis, the organizers of the National Cannabis Festival (NCF) have decided to postpone the 5th Annual Festival originally scheduled to take place on April 18th at the RFK Campus. NCF will now take place on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at the same location, on the RFK Campus.

“Postponing this year’s festival was not an easy decision to make, but we know it is the best way to protect our guests, the D.C. community and our team. Our first priority is the safety of our festival goers, vendors and staff, and we look forward to hosting NCF in September and seeing our community celebrate together,” said Caroline Phillips, founder of the National Cannabis Festival.”

All purchases for the April date will be honored for our rescheduled September date. However, General Admission purchasers can request a refund by filling out the following form before April 20, 2020 and can expect refunds to start being delivered on May 20, 2020. VIP pass holders can contact [email protected]

“We share the D.C. community’s concerns as we brace ourselves for the long-term impact this will have on our schools, healthcare institutions, local economy and, most importantly, our families,” Phillips added. “In this time, we urge our community of supporters to follow the recommendations from the CDC and the Department of Health and do their part to help the most vulnerable individuals and families get through this health crisis.”

Learn more about NCF:

This year is expected to be NCF’s most exciting and comprehensive festival yet as it raises awareness of federal cannabis legislation, increases equity and accessibility in the cannabis industry. NCF will once again host four educational pavilions; wellness, culture, policy and grow, and of course – showcase an incredible musical lineup.


General admission tickets are available for $55 for a short time only, general admission bundles start at $70 and early-entry general admission tickets are available for $85. VIP tickets include entry to multiple events around D.C., all-inclusive drinks and food at the festival and access to VIP areas and an NCF goody box! VIP CannaCabanas are also available for you and nine of your best buds to enjoy all the perks of VIP access, your own VIP lounge space, beverage service and a CannaCabana Concierge in the weeks leading up to and at NCF to ensure the best experience possible.


This year’s concert features hip-hop artists Method Man and Red Man, Young M.A, Backyard Band, Antibalas, The Archives, Lee, Blackwood and Graham and DJ Farrah Flosscett.

NCF Cypher Sessions:

Guests can also catch the final battle round of NCF’s Cypher Sessions, where three D.C. musicians will compete for the title of Highest MC in the DMV! The NCF Cypher Session is a tournament-style competition highlighting the best and brightest musical performers in the DMV region. More information coming soon!


In addition to the concert, the festival includes four educational pavilions (Wellness, Policy, Culture and the Grow School) highlighting the work that activists are engaged in to advocate for greater equity, accessibility and criminal justice reform for the cannabis community.

Seniors & Veterans:

Don’t leave nana and papa at home! This year, NCF has a special Seniors Lounge offering a senior discount and a Veterans’ Lounge, hosted by Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). The veterans’ lounge serves as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of festivities and a place where those who have served our country can connect over shared experiences.

Ultimate Weed Wedding:

We look forward to honoring the winners of the 2020 Ultimate Weed Wedding at the festival with a wedding on the main stage at NCF before Method Man & Redman perform. In addition, the lucky couples received: two VIP passes and 10 General Admission passes for wedding party guests, floral bouquets, wedding gifts from our sponsors and a Pink Fox wedding cake for the wedding party!
