The annual event that puts Ann Arbor on the map as a midwest cannabis mecca is back for its 47th year on the Diag at UM. Billed as “the largest free pro-cannabis festival east of the Mississippi,” Hash Bash draws crowds upward of ten thousand people. Expect activists preaching to the crowd at high noon on Saturday, April 7, as smoke rises above central campus.

The Festival and the Bazaar

The demonstration morphs into a festival vibe just two blocks south at the Monroe Street Fair, now in its 17th year. Vendors line the street near the Michigan Law School selling everything but cannabis (there are plenty of unsanctioned street vendors for that) while local bands and musicians perform on a central stage just outside Dominick’s.

This annual public display of affection for marijuana is something every self-medicating herb- lover should experience. Though the smell of cheeba is commonplace if you’re strolling the streets of any West Coast city, recognize this rare opportunity to participate in overt public cannabis consumption in the Midwest (without facing prosecution) and carpe diem.
