Celebrate Canada’s Last 420 As We Know It

As We Know It.

Happy 420 Canada!

It’s that time of year again, and with legalization of recreational cannabis literally around the corner, today seems to have more meaning than usual. This year, we celebrate the last politically charged 420 Canada, and welcome in a yearly 420 festival instead.

Check out the various 420 events taking place across Canada!

Event Locations


420 Nova Scotia – Joseph Leighton Dillman Park, known as the Dartmouth Commons. Expect music, raffles, give aways, cannabis consumption, and so much more!

420 Montreal Mount Royal – An event that attracts thousands to Mount Royal, gathering at the Sir Georges-Étienne Cartier monument. It often resembles a huge love-in, with hula hoops, picnics, musicians, speakers, fire dancers, etc., all co-existing in a cloud of cannabis smoke.
