42nd Annual Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival

Welcome to the 43rd Annual Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival.

We have a fantastic lineup of live music, speakers and vendors! For Live music this year we have award winning International reggae performer Kwame Bediako performing with his band at a couple events. Kwame hails from Ghana, West Africa and is known all around the world. From the local Madison music scene we are proud to feature such heavy weights like The People Brothers Band, Isthmus favorite, Tony Castaneda's Latin Jazz group. From the Madison jam rock scene The Grasshoppers and The Electric Spanking. New to the fest this year include Newport Jam from WI Dells and Evergreen from Milwaukee. We are happy to welcome back Iggy Rae (Appleton) and Jacob Greene (Milwaukee)!

Like last year we are starting on Thursday night with a Bluegrass bash at Mr. Roberts with Material Boys returning and new this year the No Name String Band. Friday we have the 11th Annual IMMY benefit featuring Kwame and an old favorite with a new name (Small Blind Johnny). Later on Friday we have offical events at both The Alchemy (Venice Gas House Trolley) and Mr. Roberts (punk hard rock w/ 4 Aspirin Morning & OC45).

Saturday we're up on Library Mall all day (11:30a-7p) with vendors, bands, speakers, and plenty of activism! Saturday evening there is an official event at Mr. Roberts.

Sunday we are back up to Library Mall shortly after noon with more music (featuring Grammy nominated Kingtown Rockers), the Parade / March down State St at 4:20P ending up on the WI State Capitol Steps (yes we do have a permit) with more speakers, protesting, and the Grasshoppers performing. See Bands page for more info.

So get ready to HARVEST!
