Nimbin’s annual MardiGrass is on again this weekend with movies, a photo exhibition and Yarndi Yarns as well as all the usual favourite events in Plantem Park, Sativa Stadium and Indica Arena.
Major highlights include the Great Green Cabaret, the Kombi Konvoy, 420 protest and Hemp Olympix heats on Saturday and the finals and Big Protest Rally Sunday. Pot Art and Pot Poetry is on again as well as a new event, the MMMA, MardiGrass Marijuana Music Awards.
The Hemp Olympix now-famous events, the Bong Throw and Yell, Growers Iron Person Event and Joint Rolling competitions will be monitored this year by Belgian officials. The Hemposium is an extraordinary, packed program of speakers on all things cannabis spread over four stages on both days–an amazing collection of Aussie weed experts, doctors and gardeners, medicine makers and hemp farmers, lawyers and scientists, politicians and hippies. Michael Pettersson, the Labor MP from Canberra, who changed their laws is a special guest. All balanced with hours of comedy and music in the evenings.
Drug-free drivers are registering on Facebook at MardiGrass rideshare and on the website.
