420 at Hippie Hill is a well-known San Francisco tradition, bringing tens of thousands of people from all over to Robin William Meadow (formerly Sharon Meadow) in Golden Gate Park to celebrate the right to use cannabis. In previous years, this “festival” was unpermitted and unofficial. It was awesome, but growing larger every year, with increased violence and the amount of trash left behind was unbelievable. Seriously… it was 11 tons in 2016.

To avoid a shutdown and make sure to make the event safe for everyone, the city actually permitted the event, bringing in sponsorships to help pay for fencing all around the perimeter, increased security, port-o-potties (so necessary), food vendors/trucks, plus a sound system and DJs for entertainment.
