Croptoberfest / Downtown Yakima / November 19 / Tickets
Croptoberfest 2016 will be hosted November 19th in the heart of downtown Yakima, Washington. Yakima is known for its sprawling hills and amazing growing seasons. This country is an agricultural hub and it has seen the rise and transition of many industries. It is our intent to exemplify to the established agrarian industries the benefits of cannabis production and processing.
Yakima was chosen for Croptoberfest™ 2016 because we aim to explore how the nascent cannabis industry is reminiscent the development of the craft beer and wine industries in Eastern Washington. Croptoberfest™ will feature cannabis education focusing on the future of the agricultural promise of cannabis in all of its forms.
The name Croptoberfest™ was of course coined after the traditional Oktoberfest, which serves as a celebration around the culture of beer all over the world to this day. The same paradigm that beer brought internationally has been created is in the cannabis sector. Washington’s cannabis industry needs to direct their focus on creating the highest quality standards while maximizing production value. New interest from experienced farmers is necessary to overcome the woes of prohibitions past.
