Exhibitor Signups are LIVE for Virtual Vermont Hemp Fest
We’re disappointed we won’t be able to catch up in person with all the great folks we’ve been getting to know over the last three years of Vermont Hemp Fest, so earlier this year we made the decision to take Hemp Fest to an interactive virtual platform in January.
Though connecting from afar, our mission is still the same: To promote working landscapes and economic development that cultivates a thriving, inclusive hemp + cannabis industry, especially in rural northern New England.
Our first-ever Virtual Vermont Hemp Fest, taking place Friday, January 29 2021, will include interactive booths and chat features, a wide range of workshops and panels and more. This year, we’re expanding our programming to include adult use cannabis and social justice, and we’re bringing in speakers from across the country.

Panels will cover changes in federal and state regulation, transitioning to the adult use market, best practices for hemp growers and makers, advocacy and social justice — and how to navigate the unique and rapidly changing agricultural landscape of hemp and cannabis in the northeast.
Tickets go on sale in November and will be reduced price for Heady Vermont supporting members. We are excited to announce that 20% of all ticketing proceeds will go towards the BIPOC Land and Food Sovereignty Fund in Brattleboro, Vermont. Check out the Susu Healing Collective here and catch them speaking at Session 6 of the ShiftMeals Womxn in VT’s Food System series in October.
To make sure that attendees and exhibitors get the most out of their Hemp Fest experience, we’ve taken it to the next level with live chat, networking lounges, exhibitor livestreams and other interactive tools to promote engagement and get your business out there. Find out more about how to exhibit, sponsor, speak, volunteer, buy tickets, or become a media partner. Heady Vermont Business Partners get a $50 discount on exhibitor fees.
On our expanded event platform, hemp cultivators can interact with potential buyers from all over the country and we will be promoting specific grower-buyer networking sessions during the event. We’ve kept both our exhibitor fees and ticketing costs low to make the event as accessible as possible for Vermonters and small businesses.
Big thanks go out to Burke Mountain Hotel and Resort for hosting our first three years of Vermont Hemp Fest. Check out the event landing page for updated info and exhibitor registration. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
