The world has moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Everything from Easter mass in the Vatican to fitness classes is being live-streamed as the virus outbreak has forced more than half of the world’s population into lockdown.
Due to the dramatic circumstances, most of this year’s 4/20 celebrations have been cancelled or postponed. But there’s no reason you can’t mark the informal stoner holiday from the comfort and safety of your home as cannabis-oriented celebrations have also moved online.
We bring you a selection of some of the best events pot-lovers can enjoy this April 20, including virtual parties, cooking sessions and new shows in order to honor the holiday and come together during these trying times.
With the first legal 420 in Illinois falling under a shelter-in-place order, Dispensary33 is bringing together the cannabis community to virtually bring together those who love and have fought for the legalization of the plant so they can tune in from home.
The virtual 420 fest via Twitch will take place on Saturday, April 18th at 4:20pm with personalities from the community creating original content to unite, entertain, and ignite the cannabis community. Each segment will include appearances by local neighbors cooking with cannabis, blowing glass, bending neon, along with DJ sets, drag and performance art. Featuring: Shea Couleé(Rupaul’s Drag Race), Chef Angelina (Top Chef), Sarah Mitchell (Tournant Chi), Lucy Stoole, White Mystery, Sauce and Bread Kitchen (Coop Hot Sauce), Bambi Banks-Couleé, Dom Brown, Kat Sass, Jenae Williams (Tokeativity), Ramona Slick, and Acacia (Glassblower).
