On Friday, April 20, people from all walks of life will once again gather at Sunset Beach to celebrate their love for cannabis at the annual 420 Vancouver celebration.
The event, which isn’t permitted or sanctioned by the City of Vancouver, usually attracts around 25,000 people each year.
The gathering used to be held at the Vancouver Art Gallery, but due to its sheer growth in size and scope, the decision was made to move the party to its new base at Sunset Beach.
- Could the 4/20 smoke-out move to the PNE in 2018?
- New petition calling for end to 420 Vancouver event at Sunset Beach
- This is where the term 420 actually comes from
And while there was some question this year about whether the location would change or not, and a petition was circulated to move the event someplace else as well, it is still set to go ahead when and where originally planned.
By 4:20 pm on the 20th day of the fourth month, a smoky haze will cover the area around Sunset Beach.
420 Vancouver has grown exponentially ever since its inaugural year at Victory Square in 1995.
When: Thursday, April 20
Time: 12 pm to 8 pm
Where: Sunset Beach – 1204 Beach Avenue, Vancouver
