Emerald Cup

  • Sonoma County Fairgrounds 1350 Bennet Valley Rd, sonoma, ca usa (map)

The Emerald Cup is Northern California's premier destination for medicinal marijuana, while advancing the concept of sustainable, outdoor farming. Its reputation is firmly solidified as the largest, most respected, organic, outdoor, medicinal cannabis competition in the world. As a group, The Emerald Cup prides itself in bringing together experts and educators in the cannabis field to our fellow farmers, patients, and patrons each year. It is a community celebration that has grown to become a global movement honoring the year's finest, organic, sun-grown, medicinal cannabis harvest.

Rolling Stone called it "the Academy Awards of the cannabis industry," other accolades include; "epic marijuana festival in Wine Country" - SF Gate, Smell The Truth, "best weed fest in the West-or any other direction" - North Bay Bohemian, "refreshing...Home To Top-shelf...Everything" - Medical Jane.

From its small beginnings in Laytonville over a decade ago, The Emerald Cup has proven itself to be "The Definitive Cup for the Fall Harvest." The Emerald Cup has transformed into not only a competition of the best-grown organic, outdoor cannabis, but just as importantly, into an international educational forum for the most up to date issues in cannabis culture.


This year's edition of The Emerald Cup will showcase an expanded vending area, both in the Hall of Flowers and beyond. With top quality local merchants showcasing cutting-edge products and services, our vendors are consistently among the best in the industry. The Emerald Cup has become known as the preeminent destination and showplace for Northern California organic and sustainable products. Many top-companies will have representatives on-hand to discuss the latest in hemp and medical cannabis. A new extensive and expanded "215-Area" will allow patients access to more collectives, dispensaries and seed companies where they will be able to sample California's finest medicinal cannabis while discussing the latest trends in genetics and breeding with top growers, past winners and future champions. A larger and more extensive food court will have even more options provided by the best local restaurants and featuring all organic menus. The Emerald Cup has it all, and we welcome you to come share it with us.
