The New York State Cannabis Festival™ offers cannabis and craft beer while highlighting exemplary women in the cannabis industry. The educational cannabis and craft beer-supported festival takes a proactive approach to end the plant's stigma and celebrates the much-awaited end of NYS cannabis prohibition.
Women, men, and non-binary who are 21+ are encouraged to attend.
Cannabis and craft beer need each other. Craft Beer needs to expand its demographic and market; Cannabis needs stigma-reducing alliances found within craft beer community demographics. Both need diversification of the market and diversity of consumers. Both will flourish with a symbiotic and synergistic alliance. Women will be the driving force behind this synergy, furthering women's empowerment through action.
