In a historic first for a county fair in the United States, the Denver County Fair – being held on August 1st through the 3rd - will feature multiple cannabis-themed contests, from plant judging, to joint rolling.
Cannabis is a major theme for the Denver County Fair this year; they even placed a cannabis leaf on the 2014 poster.
“We thought it was time for us to take that leap and represent one of the things Denver has going on,” says Tracy Weil, the fair’s Marketing and Creative Director.
Says the Fair’s Co-Founder Dana Cain; ”Our motto has always been, ‘We’re mixing up a big side of tradition with a side of now’… We had to do it. Pot is legal here — it’s yet another urban agricultural crop.”
The Fair will feature nine cannabis categories, including contests for live plants and clones (though no plants will actually be on site; the judges will examine photos), cannabis-infused brownies and savory foods, homemade bongs, homemade roach clips and hemp clothing/products. Their will also be a contest for the fastest joint roller, though oregano, and not actual cannabis, will be used.
