Third Vermont Hemp Fest Features Hemp Industry Daily’s Kristen Nichols, Double the Programming, and Shane Murley Band
This year’s Hemp Fest features agricultural, hemp and CBD exhibitors, food trucks, a Sunday Hemp Brunch and live music, along with a new dedicated site for attendees.
The cannabis media and events company Heady Vermont is proud to announce the third annual Vermont Hemp Fest taking place on Saturday, September 7 at Burke Mountain Hotel and Conference Center in East Burke.
Already one of Vermont’s premiere cannabis events, Hemp Fest 2019 will feature a full day of panels and workshops with nearly twice as much programming as 2018, dozens of agricultural, hemp and CBD exhibitors, a Friday Night Business Networking event, food trucks, live music by the Shane Murley Band, lawn games, a Sunday hemp brunch, and more.
The inaugural Hemp Fest in 2017 welcomed over 500 attendees. Two years later, with the number of registered hemp growers having quadrupled in number, and exponential growth in the public’s interest in all things cannabis, Vermont Hemp Fest is a lively platform for the agricultural hemp industry to engage, advocate and learn against the scenic backdrop of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom at the cusp of harvest season.
The keynote speaker for Hemp Fest 2019 will be Kristin Nichols, editor of Hemp Industry Daily, where she leads their coverage of the hemp and CBD industries. Previously, she worked at the Associated Press for nearly 20 years. Nichols started covering the cannabis legalization movement in 2009 – when medical stores started popping up around Denver – and wrote about the state’s first legal hemp harvest. Kristen has also covered agriculture and politics in Maryland and her home state of Georgia.
