420 in the Park: Gigantic Gathering at Hippie Hill | Golden Gate ParkLet’s file this one under “unofficial.”

There’s no permits issued, it’s not really legal, but usually the city tends to turn a blind eye when 5,000+ of people turn up on Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park on April 20th each year for a giant smoke out.  Let’s just pray for no federal bust up.

Will there be a crackdown in 2014?
SFist says that the cops may be less tolerant this year. Read more

How to stay on the good side of the cops? Don’t bring in any glass bottles, coolers, don’t amplify your sound too early and don’t be a dick - just come and be cool and mellow and the cops in the past have generally just formed a perimeter and let people be.

The unofficial time line of 420 day
An example of the typical rundown from tokeofthetown.com

  • 10:30 am – The “unofficial” vendors usually begin to arrive
  • 1 pm – The crowds start to get a bit thick as does the haze of smoke over the crowd
  • 3 pm – It’s now wall-to-wall stoners
  • 4:20 pm – It’s go time: crowd is at their peak, drum beats get more frenzied and hippie girls twirl faster as 4:20 approaches
