FOOD DRIVE

We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Wisconsin Hunger Task force. Last year we collected 800 lbs worth of food, and we’re looking to surpass that this year.

Let’s show the world that Wisconsin’s cannabis enthusiasts are generous and caring individuals by donating a literal ton of food for the hungry!

*********************************************

PROTEST PARADE at 3pm

All attendees are invited to take part in the Cannabis Freedom Parade, which will march down the sidewalk surrounding Gordon Park. This is a 2.5 mile walk and will take a little over an hour.

Bring signs, flags, and anything else (legal and within reason) to draw attention to the parade and promote the message of cannabis freedom in all of its forms (medical, spiritual, recreational, hemp).

PLEASE STAY ON THE SIDEWALK – AND OUT OF THE STREET – WE ONLY HAVE A PERMIT FOR THE SIDEWALK

PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE AND RESPECTFUL OF OTHERS IN THE AREA – PROMOTE A POSITIVE IMAGE

The parade route will be:
East across Locust St from Gordon Park
South down Oakland Ave.
West across North Ave
North up Humboldt Blvd back up to the festival at Gordon park.

*********************************************

We invite everyone with an entertainment skill, such as juggling, poi, hooping, magic, live art, etc. to come out and make this an event to remember!


*********************************************

If you would like to vend or sponsor, please contact Wisconsin NORML or eric@sewisconsinnorml.org

Vendors get space for a 10′x10′ booth. Vendor spots cost $350. Vendors can arrive to setup at 8am and should be ready to go by time the festival begins at 11am. Contact us to register or with questions.

Thank you for supporting the Milwaukee Cannabis Freedom Festival!

*********************************************

Not only will this festival be a celebration of national victories and a means to show Wisconsin’s support for marijuana legalization in front of the media, it is also intended to be a launch pad for this summer’s petition to legalize marijuana possession in the City of Milwaukee (and other municipalities).

We will need to collect over 31,000 signatures this summer for our legalization ordinance to make the ballot under Wisconsin Statute 9.20. We are confident in our ability to collect this many valid signatures, but we need to hit the ground running. The festival will be the perfect opportunity to inform thousands about the petition to ensure we have a huge force of signature-collectors to make our historic petition a success.

(Why not legalize state-wide? The Wisconsin Constitution and law only allow direct legislation at the municipal level. This means we must work city-by-city for we, The People, to end prohibition ourselves. This is what we must – and will – do until we finally achieve a state-wide end to cannabis prohibition in a similar form to Colorado.)
