Emerald Cup Announces Harvest Ball Festival 2022

Emerald Cup Harvest Ball returns on December 10 & 11, 2022 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, in Santa Rosa, California. Harvest Ball is an annual gathering of the global Emerald Cup community in celebration of the fall harvest. The community kicks off the journey to the 19th Annual Emerald Cup Awards by celebrating California’s best cannabis cultivators and growers

The highly anticipated 2022 Emerald Cup Harvest Ball (ECHB) (www.theemeraldcup.com) will take place on Saturday, December 10th, and Sunday, December 11th at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California. After making its debut last December, this new celebration for The Emerald Cup community is deeply rooted in a tradition dating back to 2003, when on a small farm in the hills of the Emerald Triangle of Northern California the first awards were held by founder Tim Blake and his friends.

Continuing the collaborative effort to successfully unite the NorCal and SoCal cannabis markets into a single California Cannabis community, the annual Emerald Cup once again manifests in two unique events in two distinct locations: The 2022 Emerald Cup Harvest Ball will be at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, California this December, while the 19th Annual Emerald Cup Awards Show is destined to take place in May 2023 in Los Angeles.

The Emerald Cup Harvest Ball will offer a robust consumer marketplace that will include fresh harvest flowers, top-shelf genetics, and the year’s most highly sought-after products – making this an annual reunion event for the cannabis industry and culture. Concert stages will host chart-topping musical guests; Emerald Cup Sessions speaker panels will feature powerful voices, thought-leaders, and visionaries from all corners of cannabis culture, plus consumption lounges, VIP experiences, organic food halls, infused bars and beer gardens, artisan fairs and memory-making moments will be on-site to celebrate the counterculture lifestyle with a full two-day experience.

Expect a tasteful insider-access environment at both the public event at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds and at VIP experiences held throughout the weekend. Here industry heavy hitters, cultural icons, and passionate activists will network, share knowledge, and create solutions, through thought-provoking conversations on the ever-evolving cannabis and psychedelic industries
