One in five Americans now lives in a state with legal, adult use cannabis laws. From sea to shining sea, concerts, contests, film festivals, and expos are going off on April 20, which falls on a Saturday this year.

What was once high school code for meeting up and getting lifted (“420!”) has transformed over a generation into a rallying cry for cannabis culture and liberation.

With 10 legal adult-use states, plus Washington, D.C., the parties are bigger than ever. We rounded up this year’s absolute biggest, baddest throwdowns on April 20th and the surrounding weekend, so mark your calendars and stock up.
