The National Cannabis Festival lights up RFK Stadium with Thundercat and Wu-Tang Clan

The National Cannabis Festival, an annual celebration of cannabis that attracts over 30,000 advocates, business leaders, patients, and enthusiasts to the festival grounds at the Districts’ RFK Stadium, is happening this Friday, April 19, and Saturday, April 20, with headlining performances from Thundercat and Wu-Tang Clan with Redman.

More than just a music event, the National Cannabis Festival allows visitors from all over the country to convene, celebrate, learn, and find community in cannabis.


In addition to the concert, the festival features six educational pavilions allowing attendees to participate in discussions on the medicinal benefits of cannabis, learn about legislative updates from state and federal advocates, hear from farming, tech, and culture influencers, re-focus their minds with yoga sessions, and more.


  • LGBTQIA+ Lounge, hosted by The Washington Blade, is a place for advocates and community members to gather, network, and share experiences.
  • Seniors Lounge (for NCF’s “golden buds”) and the Veterans Pavilion return to serve as retreats for our special guests from the hustle and bustle of festivities.


At the Exhibitor Fair, experience the Shops of Shaolin, an exclusive pop-up shop featuring Wu Brands, like Method Man’s Tical Athletics and RX Water, Ghostface Killah’s Killah Koffee, Raekwon’s Hashstoria, and more. Festival goers can also shop products from over 100 exhibitors, including Levo, Cap & Stem, and Green Theory.

General Admission tickets for both Friday and Saturday are available for $130. Single-day tickets for Friday are available for $55 and for Saturday for $85.
