High Times is moving the 2016 Cannabis Cup from Denver to Pueblo.
In a last minute move, High Times Magazine, the presenter of the Cannabis Cup, has moved this year’s event to Pueblo, Colorado. Normally hosted at the Denver Mart, organizers had to find a new venue after the Denver Mart’s permit request was denied by Adams County officials.
The 2016 Colorado Cannabis Cup will take place at a soon-to-be-disclosed location in Pueblo over three days: Saturday, April 16 – Monday, April 18. As of this writing, the official website of the event states that tickets will go on sale next week. Last year’s Cannabis Cup drew over 100,000 people over the course of three days in Denver.
Pueblo, Colorado is located about 45 miles (40 minute drive) south of Colorado Springs and about 115 miles south of Denver (1 hour, 45 min drive).
For those who can’t make it to Pueblo, there are still plenty of events scheduled for 4/20 in Denver, including the Official 420 Rally in Civic Center Park which will take place over three days: Friday, April 15 – Sunday April 17.
Three big concerts will take place in Denver on the two days after Cannabis Cup. Method Man and Redman will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Tuesday, April 19. Also on the 19th, Cypress Hill and George Clinton / Parliament Funkadelic will be at 1STBANK Center. And Snoop Dogg will perform at Fiddler’s Green on Wednesday, April 20. (Tickets and Info)
