About this event:
Hemp Fest will kick off with a pre-registration party on Friday, September 8 for those who wish to start off the weekend early. Exhibitor displays, workshops and programming will take place on Saturday, September 9 in the brand-new Burke Mountain Hotel and Conference Center. Sponsors include UVM Extension Agriculture, Ceres Natural Remedies and the Vermont Hemp Company. Media sponsors include Front Porch Forum.
Panel session presenters include the Vermont Agricultural Extension, who will share practical information for Vermont landowners and farmers; the Vermont Hemp Company, who will share information and answer questions about planting, cultivating, and harvesting hemp in Vermont; and Ceres PM, who will lead a ‘CBD 101’ workshop, to discuss the current possible uses for ‘cannabidiol’, a non-psychoactive compound that has been used to treat seizure disorders, PTSD, concussion recovery, and increasingly for general wellness.
On Saturday evening following exhibitions and workshops, there will be dining opportunities at Burke Mountain View Pub and in the surrounding Burke/Lyndonville area, followed by live music at the resort until late-night. On Sunday, Heady Vermont will host a members and sponsors-only party with live music, food and beverages at a neighboring farm.
